The prefecture-level city of Quzhou in East China's Zhejiang province is well on its way to boosting the number of major projects under construction at the start of the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) period -- and the municipality has also been moving to streamline its governance, according to local officials.
In a bid to boost investment, plans have been sped up to promote 763 key projects, with a total investment of 1.14 trillion yuan ($176.4 billion).
The city has reportedly made strong achievements in its economic and social development over the past five years and has achieved the major goals it set itself for the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) period.
As of Sept 30, 2020, the registered migrant population of Quzhou was 292,600, an increase of 68,000 compared with the same period in the previous year. That represented a 30.3 percent year-on-year gain, ranking it first among all the cities in Zhejiang province.
