The past 40 years have seen Guiyang transform from a poor, underdeveloped western city which was cut off from the outside world into an all-inclusive, open inland city.
Guiyang has undertaken 152 state and provincial level reforms since the 18th National Congress, including the big data development system and mechanism reform and the ecological civilization system reform, which have had impacts throughout the country.
The reform to streamline administration, delegate powers, and improve regulation and services has been furthered. The total number of market entities in the city surpassed 490,000, whose combined registered capital topped 2 trillion yuan ($289.37 billion).
Guizhou's first free trade zone was set up in Guiyang in 2014.
The year 2014 saw the establishment of the Guizhou Shuanglong Airport Economic Zone, which was listed by the state as a National Airport Economy Demonstration Zone in 2017.
Moreover, Guiyang has successfully hosted major international events including multiple editions of the China International Big Data Industry Expo and Eco Forum Global Guiyang.
