From the resilience of Tianjin’s economy, we can see that Tianjin’s development has a solid foundation and support. By exploring this resilience, we can see the strength of Tianjin’s economy in the post-epidemic era. The recently concluded Central Economic Work Conference released a clear signal of “vigorously boosting market confidence” and “achieving effective improvement in quality and reasonable growth in quantity”. Is Tianjin ready to fight for the economy?
“No winter is insurmountable.” We came to the crossing.
This three – year hard fight against the epidemic is taking a major turn. In the early stage of “transition”, the shock wave was not small, but consensus had been formed.
Through the epidemic period and the necessary hurdle, life and production can return to the long-awaited daily life, and development can return to the “full load operation” state.
“The sun always comes after the storm.” After the storm, the world will be new and vigorous. 2023 is the first year to fully implement the spirit of the 20th CPC National Congress. The Central Economic Work Conference set the pace for development in 2023, stressing the need to vigorously boost market confidence, promote the overall improvement of economic operation, achieve effective improvement in quality and reasonable growth in quantity, and make a good start for the comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country.
The quality has risen at the beginning. The time window is opening and the new track has been rolled out. We can fight for economy. Tianjin should take the initiative to step into the sunshine, fully open its power, take advantage of the situation and speed up its efforts, seize the lost time and improve the quality and speed of development.
01 Resilience of “bottoming out and rising”
Why is Tianjin competing for economy? This is the question that many people are asking. In the face of the “faded” growth figures in recent years, there are many online discussions. The Tianjin Municipal Party Committee and the Tianjin Municipal Government have always stressed the need to maintain historical patience, improve the quality and efficiency of development, abandon the “digital complex” and “face complex”, and firmly adhere to the high-quality development path.
To climb the slope and cross the ridge, because this road must be taken; Keep history patient, because time will prove everything.
People should talk about “face”, but not be confused by “complex”. Tianjin certainly values “speed” and “number”, but it needs long-term development. In the face of the problems accumulated in the past, and in the face of this cycle and this stage, we must grasp the historical initiative – the resolute adjustment of unsustainable, the resolute correction of deviation from the direction, and the resolute cultivation of great prospects. One city, one pool, one day and one night is important, but it is more important to achieve stable and sustainable growth. Over the years, Tianjin has implemented the new development concept, actively adjusted the structure, eliminated the false high, increased the stamina, adjusted the direction of optimization and calibration, changed the extensive and inefficient development mode, and high-quality development has become more and more sufficient. While the “number” is falling, Tianjin is also “bottoming out”.
Tianjin must “return”. As a municipality directly under the Central Government with a population of 13.8 million, Tianjin has over a hundred years of industrial and commercial development accumulation, unique location and transportation advantages, rich resources of science and technology, education, medical treatment and talents, and a complete reform and opening-up innovation development platform such as national new area, free trade zone, self-created zone and comprehensive bonded zone. Tianjin is “a good brand”. When the outside world saw Tianjin “squatting down”, Tianjin people never doubted that the city would eventually recover its glory.
Before the COVID-19, Tianjin stepped up structural adjustment while promoting transformation and upgrading. While renovating 22000 “scattered pollution” enterprises, significantly reducing steel production capacity, and vigorously tackling “park siege”, its GDP steadily rebounded from the low point of 1.9% in the first quarter of 2018, and recovered to 4.8% in the fourth quarter of 2019. In 2022, Tianjin will coordinate epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development, and its GDP will rebound quarter by quarter, showing its economic resilience.
From the resilience of Tianjin’s economy, we can see that Tianjin’s development has a solid foundation and support. By exploring this resilience, we can see the strength of Tianjin’s economy in the post-epidemic era.
02 A great game of chess has entered a good situation Tianjin’s economy is sometimes advantageous.
In February 2014, the coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei has become a major national strategy, and has been further promoted for more than eight years. This large market with a population of more than 100 million has achieved remarkable results in transportation integration, factor integration, and public service integration. Synergies and comprehensive benefits are accelerating.
The coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei is based on “development”; The progress of Tianjin lies in the regional progress. The coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei has played a strategic leading role in Tianjin’s development and brought significant historical opportunities to Tianjin’s development.
Beijing has been relieved of its non-capital functions, while Tianjin and Hebei have taken over. An important feature of the Beijing-Tianjin “Tale of two Cities” is to highlight “marketization” and give full play to the decisive role of the market in resource allocation. Because the two places in capital, technology, talent, industry and other aspects have a very good complement, “1+1 > 2”, we work together to break into the market, earn together, win together.
Both the Binhai Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park in the new area and the Beijing-Tianjin-Zhongguancun Science and Technology City in Baodi have established a close cooperation mechanism and undertaken a large number of high-tech enterprises with good growth. Many enterprises settled in Tianjin in Beijing have developed rapidly. For example, Yunsheng Intelligent, a UAV enterprise, has raised more than 300 million yuan in round B financing last year. This year, the company has successfully promoted to the national level of specialized “small giant” enterprises. Huahai Qingke, a semiconductor equipment company, successfully landed on the science and technology innovation board in June this year.
In the decade of the new era, investment from Beijing and Hebei has always played an important role in attracting domestic investment in Tianjin. A large number of enterprises affiliated to central enterprises, such as CNOOC, CCCC, GE and CEC, have deep layout in Tianjin, and high-tech enterprises such as Lenovo and 360 have set up various headquarters in Tianjin. Enterprises from Beijing have invested more than 6700 projects in Tianjin, with more than 1.14 trillion yuan in capital.
With the continuous promotion of coordinated development and the deep integration of the three markets, the cake of regional economy will become bigger and stronger. With the help of good wind, based on its own advantages, and participating in regional division of labor and cooperation, Tianjin’s development will continue to open new space and maintain a strong potential.
To implement the spirit of the Twentieth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Tianjin has recently made it clear that it will take the in-depth promotion of the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei as the strategic traction, do a good job of the coordinated development, do its own work well, benchmark the central deployment requirements, and further study and formulate the specific action plan for Tianjin to promote the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.
03 Engine that “grows on the body” Tianjin has the advantage of transportation because of its economy.
At the bottom of the Bohai Bay, giant ships shuttle. After the extraordinary catch-up in 2019, 2020 and 2021, the container throughput of Tianjin Port exceeded 20 million TEUs for the first time in 2021, ranking eighth in the world. In 2022, Tianjin Port continued to maintain its growth momentum, reaching nearly 20 million TEUs by the end of November.
This year, the traffic volume of the China-Europe (Central Asia) train in Tianjin Port exceeded 90000 TEUs for the first time, with a year-on-year increase of nearly 60%, further consolidating the leading position of Tianjin Port’s land bridge international train traffic volume in the country’s coastal ports. In the first 11 months of this year, the combined sea-rail transport volume reached 1.115 million TEUs, up 20.9% year on year.
In addition to the increase in quantity, there is also a qualitative leap. A series of intelligent and green innovative applications such as the world’s first smart zero-carbon wharf have greatly improved the modernization level of the port and reconstructed the strength and function of Tianjin Port. The construction of world-class smart green ports has achieved remarkable results.
Revitalize the city with ports. Tianjin Port is Tianjin’s unique geographical advantage and a huge engine growing in Tianjin. In that year, the Tianjin Development Zone was located at Binhai, which is to consider the convenience of the port. Now Tianjin is building a “Jincheng” and “Bincheng” dual-city development pattern, which is also to further play the advantages of the Binhai New Area, promote the integration of port industry and city, and realize the development of the new area at a higher level.
Port thrives and the city thrives. The functional orientation of Tianjin’s “North International Shipping Core Area” is precisely based on the seaport. It is not only shipping, but also shipping services, export processing, financial innovation, leisure tourism and other industries. The layout of major projects in Tianjin, such as aerospace, large equipment manufacturing, LNG storage and large chemical industry, all rely on the convenience of ocean transportation.
In response to the rapid growth of the freight business of Tianjin Port, Tianjin is making great efforts to expand the transportation channel, leaving sufficient space for future increment. The construction of the special freight passage project of Tianjin Port for collection and distribution adopts the standard of two-way 8 to 12 lane expressway and expressway. The first section was started in July this year, and the bidding for the second section of the project was also completed in the near future.
Transportation is the lifeblood of urban development. In addition to the seaport, Tianjin is also promoting the reconstruction and expansion of Tianjin Binhai International Airport to build a regional aviation hub and China International Air Logistics Center. Tianjin’s highway network density leaped to the second place in the country last year.
To the east is the vast ocean, and to the west, north and south are the vast hinterland of North China, Northeast and Northwest China. By making good use of the developed transportation and logistics system of sea, land and air, and playing the traffic card well, Tianjin can continuously consolidate its own advantages and improve its competitiveness and attractiveness in the future development.
04 Rebuild “Made in Tianjin” Tianjin has a solid foundation for its economy.
In recent years, Tianjin has promoted a deep industrial innovation, which has accumulated potential energy for further economic development.
——The territory of “Tianjin Smart Manufacturing” is becoming larger and larger. Last year, the operating revenue of Tianjin’s intelligent technology industry accounted for 24.8% of the city’s industries above designated size and information service industries above designated size, of which the added value of the electronic information manufacturing industry increased by 9.1%, and the growth rate of the information innovation and integrated circuit industry chains reached 31% and 24% respectively.
Behind this, Tianjin seized the development opportunity of the new generation of information technology and began to hold the World Intelligence Conference in succession in 2017, striving to build a pioneer city of artificial intelligence.
These years have also witnessed the rapid development of Tianjin’s intelligent technology industry. Tianjin has set up industrial agglomeration and technological innovation platforms such as the “China Innovation Valley” and the Innovation Haihe Laboratory, bringing together more than 1000 upstream and downstream enterprises of innovation, including Kirin, Feiteng, 360, National Supercomputer, Central, and Zhongke Shuguang, forming the entire product chain of innovation, which is one of the most complete cities in the layout of the national innovation industry chain.
Last month, Tianjin Jinhaitong Semiconductor Equipment Co., Ltd. had an IPO and planned to go public in the near future. Before that, this year, three semiconductor industry enterprises and intelligent equipment enterprise Meiteng Technology, namely Vijay Chuangxin, Huahai Qingke and Haiguang Information, have landed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange Science and Technology Innovation Board in Tianjin. The cultivation in the past few years ushered in the outbreak of concentration. Up to now, there are 9 listed companies in Tianjin Xinchuang industrial chain.
——There are more and more “Made in Tianjin” products. This year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the list of the seventh batch of single champions in the manufacturing industry, and a total of 12 enterprises in Tianjin were successfully selected. These enterprises are among the top three in the world and the leading in China in their respective sub-sectors. Among them, 9 enterprises including Gaosheng Wire Rope, Pengling Group, Changrong Technology, Aerospace Precision Industry, Hengyin Finance, TCL Central, Yuantai Derun, TianDuan and Jinbao Musical Instrument were selected as the seventh batch of single champion demonstration enterprises, and 3 enterprises including TBEA, Lizhong Wheel and Xinyu Color Plate were selected as the seventh batch of single champion products. According to the relevant person in charge of the Municipal Bureau of Industry and Information Technology, 11 of the selected enterprises ranked first in the country in the field of segmentation, and 8 of them ranked first in the world.
Last year, the number of enterprises selected for the sixth batch of individual champions in Tianjin was 7. This year, it can be described as a big step forward, showing a strong momentum of “Made in Tianjin”. Up to now, Tianjin has formed a training echelon of 28 national single champion enterprises, 71 municipal single champion enterprises and 41 municipal seed single champions.
——Key industrial chains are increasingly supporting the economy. The “1+3+4” modern industrial system of intelligent technology, biomedicine, new energy, new materials and other industries that Tianjin strives to build has accelerated development. The 12 key industrial chains that have been vigorously cultivated have increasingly become the ballast of the economy. In the first three quarters of this year, the added value of industrial enterprises above the designated size accounted for 78.3% of the city’s industrial enterprises above the designated size. The growth rate of the added value of industrial enterprises above the designated size of the three industrial chains, including aerospace, biomedicine, and innovation, respectively reached 23.8%, 14.5% and 14.3%. In terms of investment, in the first three quarters, investment in strategic emerging industries increased by 15.6%, and investment in high-tech manufacturing increased by 8.8%.
Spring planting and autumn harvest. Tianjin adheres to the innovation-driven strategy, implements the strategy of building a manufacturing city, and builds a national advanced manufacturing R&D base. After several years of structural adjustment, transformation and upgrading, this traditional industrial town is undergoing profound changes and gradually entering the harvest period.
It is not only industrial manufacturing that improves quality and efficiency. In recent years, Tianjin has done a lot of work in the reform of state-owned enterprises, commercial renewal, market prosperity and other aspects, and the economy has become stronger and stronger, and the trend of thick accumulation and thin development is increasingly apparent.
05 Go ahead and keep the saddle Tianjin strives for economy and has high morale.
This year, Tianjin strengthened its economic dispatch and compacted its responsibilities. The whole city has made unremitting efforts to promote projects, investment and development. In early spring and February, Tianjin released a list of 676 municipal key projects with a total investment of 1.8 trillion yuan, focusing on technological and industrial innovation, industrial chain upgrading, major infrastructure and major livelihood improvement. Just one month later, the first batch of major projects with a total investment of 316 billion yuan were started in a centralized manner, and the scale and quality reached a new high in recent years. In the first three quarters, 529 key construction projects in the city were started, with a construction rate of 95.49%, and a total investment of 174.276 billion yuan was completed.
From June to October, Tianjin added 2583 new reserve projects with a total investment of 1.86 trillion yuan, including 1701 new reserve projects with a total investment of 458.6 billion yuan. In terms of volume, there are 281 projects with more than 1 billion yuan and 46 projects with more than 10 billion yuan. As for the source of funds, the proportion of project investment dominated by social capital reached 80%.
“Plan a batch, reserve a batch, build a batch, and complete a batch”, rolling development and a virtuous cycle. This year, a large number of highly mature projects will be launched next year, and a large number of newly completed projects will show benefits next year – the economic growth of the new year will be strongly supported.
The Twentieth National Congress of the Communist Party of China has drawn a blueprint for building a socialist modern country in an all-round way, and the Central Economic Work Conference has laid out the work priorities for next year. In building a new development pattern, Tianjin can only serve the national strategy and realize its own development if it strives to be the first.
“National Advanced Manufacturing R&D Base, North International Shipping Core Area, Financial Innovation and Operation Demonstration Area, and Reform and Opening up Pilot Area” is the functional orientation of Tianjin for the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, which is also the orientation of Tianjin in the overall development of the country. The cultivation and construction of the first batch of international consumption center cities, and the simultaneous development of regional commercial and trade center cities, “one base and three areas” plus “two centers”, are complete and mutually supportive, combined with Tianjin’s unique potential, giving Tianjin a broad prospect in the domestic and international “double circulation”.
Of course, we should also be soberly aware that the adjustment of Tianjin’s economic structure and the transformation of old and new driving forces have not been completed, the quality and efficiency of development still need to be improved, and the old problems such as the lack of vitality of the private economy have not been solved. Tianjin still needs new determination, drive and measures to complete the road of transformation and answer the examination paper of the era of high-quality development. It is expected to make further deployment at the next plenary session of the CPC Municipal Committee and the two sessions of the CPC Municipal Committee.
With a hundred years of glory and strong confidence, Tianjin people have always had the blood in their bones in the thousand-sail race. With great efforts, Tianjin will continue to forge new competitiveness and create new brilliance in the new era and new journey.
