Recently, the General Office of the State Council issued a circular to supervise and motivate the implementation of major policy measures in 2018. Among them, Tianjin Binhai New Area (TBNA for short) has achieved remarkable results in implementing major policy measures in vigorously cultivating and developing strategic emerging industries, and has received comprehensive reports and rewards. Looking at TBNA's transcripts of industrial development last year, along with the sharp decline in steel and cement production, it has achieved remarkable results in promoting stable industrial growth, transformation and upgrading, and implementing technological transformation. The proportion of strategic emerging industries has reached 26.9%. Corporate profits increased by 31%, 20% higher than the national total. These figures not only mean that the reform of the industrial supply side of TBNA has achieved new results, but also revealed that the industrial quality of TBNA is constantly improving.
The real policy promotes further release of industrial competitiveness.
In the major enterprises in TBNA, the automated and intelligent production equipment has changed from the rare thing in the beginning, to the must that can be seen everywhere. In the plant of Tianjin Xintai Auto Parts Co., Ltd. in Tianjin Economic-technological Development Area (abbreviated as TEDA), one robot is processing and transporting auto parts such as car door frames and trims. According to Li Zhijian, the company's production manager, they have already introduced about 100 robotic devices to participate in production to replace manual operations. Compared with the traditional production mode in the past, the company not only saved a lot of labor costs, but also increased the production efficiency by more than 20%, driven by the integration of two chemical corporations and intelligent technology. At present, the company's automotive exterior parts products account for about 40% of the automotive parts market share in the North, and the product quality has reached the same level of advanced or leading level at home and abroad. Especially in the premise of the decline of the entire auto industry in recent years, Tianjin Xintai Auto Parts Co., Ltd. still maintains a compound growth rate of 2.34%, and tax revenue increases by 10%.
The reporter learned that under the promotion of the District Industry and Information Technology Bureau in TBNA, Tianjin Xintai Auto Parts Co., Ltd. continued to strengthen the construction of information technology and received resources from lean management companies such as Abrain. Nowadays, replacing people by machine, new process development and smart manufacturing have long been the key words for the growth of this manufacturing enterprise.
“TBNA is striving to promote the optimization of industrial structure and promote the development of advanced manufacturing.” This sentence is not only on the surface, but through the real support to promote the transformation and upgrading of the industry and its high-quality development. According to Zhang Guihua, director of the District Industry and Information Technology Bureau, since the establishment of TBNA, the two-in-one integration policy has been continuously formulated, and the enterprises have continued to support the integration of the two industries, with a total support fund of 94.65 million yuan. Since 2018, TBNA has implemented the Policies to Accelerate the Development of Intelligent Science and Technology Industry in Tianjin. At present, 165 projects in TBNA have received funding support of 500 million yuan from the municipal level and district level, and FAW-Volkswagen and FAW-Toyota have been built. Seven national and municipal smart factories and digital workshops, such as Toyota and Lishen Battery, have a digital R&D tool penetration rate of 91.5% and a key process CNC rate of 70.5%.
Industrial structure is gradually optimized and TBNA is heading on a characteristic path of industrial development.
“At present, TBNA is promoting the construction of a national advanced manufacturing R&D base.” Zhang Guihua revealed that last year, 200 key projects such as FAW Toyota Asia Dragon and FAW-Volkswagen Intelligent Factory were completed and put into production. 763 projects including Sino-Saudi Arabia New Material Industrial Park accelerated. 398 projects such as Sugon General Chip started construction. Focusing on the high-quality development of industry, TBNA has established 236 national and municipal enterprise technology centers such as Sugon Information, including 33 state-level enterprise technology centers, and built two municipal-level manufacturing innovation centers like Tianjin Modern Chinese Medicine Innovation Center.
In terms of industrial focus development and gathering development, the industry in TBNA has gradually stepped out of its own characteristic path. The formulation and implementation of the Implementation Plan Focusing on Industry Upgrade of Binhai New Area also confirms this point. According to relevant data, last year, TBNA added two new national industrial demonstration bases, namely, new energy (storage battery) in Binhai High-tech Industrial Zone and Eco-city industrial transfer cooperation, which amounted to 8 bases in total, accounting for 73% of Tianjin, covering advantageous industries such as petrochemicals, equipment manufacturing, electronic information, and aviation.
Up to now, in the field of autonomous and controllable electronic information, Tianhe Supercomputer, Sugon Information and Nanda General in TBNA have been selected into the national big data industry pilot project, and the output of integrated circuit wafers and service robots has more than doubled. The Sugon Advanced Computing Innovation Center was successfully promoted, and the independent controllable basic software and hardware industry chain was initially formed. Airbus has delivered 404 A320 aircraft and 14 A330 aircrafts, and the aerospace industry chain is becoming more and more perfect. The construction of the Synthetic Biomedical Innovation Center was smoothly advanced. TEDA and the High-tech Zone are among the top 50 comprehensive competitiveness of the national biomedical industrial park, with competitive advantages in new drug research and development, stem cell technology, and synthetic biology.
Zhang Guihua said, "The incentive from the State Council is an affirmation of the steady growth of the industry in TBNA. In the future, we will actively promote the high-quality development of industry, and strive to build a competitive and independent software and hardware industry system that is competitive in the country, as well as a world-class aviation equipment base, the world's leading power battery industry base and the international biomedical innovation center that is competitive in the country."
