Xifeng county in Guiyang, Southwest China's Guizhou province, recently rolled out a work plan in response to the provincial campaign to "make Guiyang stronger". The plan elaborates on what the county is going to do to stimulate its economy, raise its bearing capacity, enhance urban functions, and strengthen governance.
According to the plan, the real economy will be Xifeng's first priority, and modern industrialization will be the first step on the road to high-quality development. Xifeng will take full advantage of its three special industries – the modern chemical industry, new types of building materials, and chemical medicine – among which the first two are 10-billion-yuan ($1.5 billion) industries and are expected to inject vitality into Xifeng's five one-billion-yuan industrial clusters, which include new medicine, special food, equipment manufacturing, energy conservation, environmental protection, and the production of consumer goods.
During this process, the Xifeng Economic and Development Zone will become a main "battlefield" for change.
Xifeng also seeks to make more breakthroughs in tourism, including red tourism, hot springs, forests, and rural tourism.
The government will facilitate the consumption upgrade from traditional to the mid- and high-end level, by increasing the county's attractiveness and improving infrastructure and public services.
The county will also strengthen ecological construction, develop its green economy, and promote the economical and intensive utilization of resources.
