To date, the city has developed a total of 17 key county-level industrial gathering areas, including three provincial-level demonstration areas.
A total of 29 small and micro enterprise entrepreneurship innovation bases have been developed, including 13 national-level bases.
The total planned area of the city's industrial gathering areas is 245.16 square kilometers, of which the industrial planning area is 162.77 sq km.
Last year, the output value of the city's industrial gathering areas hit 166.9 billion yuan ($24.48 billion), while the small and micro enterprise entrepreneurship innovation bases achieved 26.79 billion yuan in operating income.
