The entire auto industrial chain in Jiaxing, East China's Zhejiang province, generated more than 60 billion yuan ($8.55 billion) in output value in 2019, Jiaxing Daily reported on July 24.
In the same year, the output value of the auto manufacturing industry in the city totaled 36.4 billion yuan.
In a recent document, the Jiaxing municipal government revealed plans to construct five provincial-level advanced manufacturing clusters by 2025 focusing on auto manufacturing, modern textiles, new energy, new chemical materials, and intelligent homes.
In the auto manufacturing industry, the Jiaxing government has specified areas of focus, such as finished automobile and key auto parts, which will develop in the districts of Nanhu and Xiuzhou, the counties of Pinghu and Tongxiang, and Jiaxing Economic Development Zone.
The output value of the auto industrial chain in Jiaxing is expected to exceed 100 billion yuan by 2025.
In addition, as one of the four major auto industry hubs in Zhejiang, Jiaxing will focus on the development of battery electric vehicles in Tongxiang county and hydrogen fuel battery in Jiashan Economic and Technological Development Zone.
Zhang Yong, general manager of the testing center of Zhejiang Hezhong New Energy Vehicles Co Ltd, believes that vehicle manufacturers need more support from production-oriented service sectors.
Zhang said that a highly concentrated industrial chain is more reliable in terms of quality control throughout the entire manufacturing process.
Jiaxing has made efforts to introduce more production-oriented service sectors in recent years and applied for the pilot reform of auto-related certification, inspection and testing.
The National Inspection and Testing High-tech Service Industry Cluster (Zhejiang) in Jiaxing was inaugurated in 2018 and has introduced nine relevant companies with a total operation revenue of 800 million yuan.
