The Ministry of Commerce (MOC) recently announced the 2019 newly-approved national foreign trade transformation and upgrading bases list. Hunan added two such bases – the Changsha Economic and Technological Development Zone (engineering machinery); and, the Ningyuan County (shoes). Hunan has 11 national foreign trade transformation and upgrading bases by now, including 3 in Changsha.
Hunan organized and guided a number of industrial clusters featuring obvious export-oriented industrial advantages and distinctive regional characteristics, to apply for MOC’s base identification this March. This was to implement the spirit of the 19th National CPC Congress, promote building China into a powerful country in foreign trade, and carry forward the high-quality development of foreign trade. The Changsha Economic and Technological Development Zone and Ningyuan County, passed the expert review, ministerial review, and public announcement procedures, and were approved as the transformation and upgrading bases of foreign trade in engineering machinery and shoes.
The relevant person in charge of the Hunan Provincial Department of Commerce said, “The construction and development of 11 foreign trade transformation and upgrading bases in the province will further promote Hunan’s foreign trade structure transformation and upgrading, consolidate and strengthen the international competitiveness of traditional industries, and promote the high-quality and stable development of foreign trade in our province.”
