Ⅱ. Basic Ideas, Tasks and Objectives of the Thirteenth Five Year Plan Development

The Thirteenth Five-Year Plan is a decisive stage in finishing building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and a critical period in preliminarily building an international metropolis with historical and cultural characteristics for Xi'an city. According to relevant national and provincial "13th Five-Year Plan" requirements on the overall arrangement and development of Xi' an, and the draft of the 13th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development of Xi'an by the municipal government, we proposed the guiding ideology, objectives, major tasks and measures for development over the next five years and submitted to the session for review and approval, then we will earnestly implement these plans.

The overall consideration is that we will have an in-depth implementation of the concepts of innovative, coordinated, green, open, and shared development, systematically advance quality Xi'an city construction based on the requirements of "catch up and surpass" and "five solids"; we will realize three leaps on economic strength, urban and rural residents income, and economic export-oriented degree, promote a sharp enhancement on five aspects such as city innovation driving force, industrial competitiveness, comprehensive carrying capacity, and radiation motivating force and green development force.

Building a quality Xi'an city that carries the ancient and embraces the future while reserving its openness, inclusiveness, high-end quality, harmony and livability is a strategic choice for the city to construct a moderately prosperous society in all respects and create a new start of the Silk Road Economic Belt and an international metropolis with all-out efforts. This serves as a necessary requirement for in-depth structural readjustment, comprehensive improvement of development quality and results. It is also a practical need for jointly construction of a harmonious and livable home for the citizens to live a better life. We will put the construction of a quality Xi’an as the concrete practice of the city's in-depth implementation of the spirit of the fifth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee and Central Economic Working Conference, and city work conference, and the full implementation of the "five major development concepts" and "city development paths with Chinese characteristics". It will be stressed throughout the economic and social development of all fields to upgrade "six qualities" of economic development, city governance, livable environment, opening to the outside world, people's livelihood and government service. As a result, the general public can see real changes from quality construction and obtain real benefits from it.

We will put forth effort to enhance the quality of economic development.  We should firmly set development as top priority, focusing on transformation, upgrading and going beyond. Innovation will be regarded as the core of development.

While maintaining development speed without losing speed, and increasing quantity with better quality, we will make sure that the economic growth will be steadily maintained within "the first phalanx" of sub-provincial cities in the country, and speed up the pace of joining " trillion GDP club".  During the 13th Five-Year Plan, the city's GDP is expected to increase by 8%, with per capita GDP at USD 15,000. Six hundred-billion strategic industrial clusters will be built, with value added in service industry accounting for 60% of GDP, and science and technology progress contribution rate increasing to 63%.
