The Research Center of Intelligent Equipment Industry, CCID Consulting recently released “CCID Consulting’s Top 100 Advanced Manufacturing Cities (2021)”. Seven cities in Hunan Province, including Changsha, Zhuzhou, Changde, Yueyang, Hengyang, Chenzhou, and Xiangtan, made the list, ranking 10th, 42nd, 71st, 84th, 88th, 93rd, and 97th on the list respectively.

The list has conducted a systematic study and comprehensive evaluation of the advanced manufacturing development in 293 prefecture-level cities across China from 27 indicators in five dimensions: innovation capability, integrated development, economic drive, brand quality, and green centralization. Hunan’s seven listed cities showed their charm as the main force in building Hunan into a manufacturing powerhouse.

In recent years, Hunan has vigorously implemented the Three Highlands and Four New Missions Strategy, and has taken solid steps to build itself into an important national advanced manufacturing highland. Between January and October this year, the provincial equipment manufacturing industry maintained rapid growth, with competitive industries such as electronic machinery achieving double-digit growth. The provincial large-scale industries increased by 8.7% year on year, and the two-year average growth rate was 6.3%, ranking fifth among the top ten major industrial provinces nationwide.

Changsha City, the capital of Hunan Province, has formed five hundred-billion-yuan industrial structures of construction machinery, new materials, electronic information, food and tobacco, and automobiles and parts. It is now forging ahead to promote the construction machinery among the world-class advanced manufacturing cluster.

Zhuzhou City is the only city in Hunan Province with the R&D investment accounting for more than 3% of GDP. Its added value of high-tech industries accounts for 28.1% of GDP.

Changde City has vigorously promoted industrial projects and strives to build the entire industrial chain. In the first three quarters of this year, there were 152, 85, and 77 newly-introduced, newly-started, and newly-operated industrial projects, each with a total value of 100 million yuan.

Yueyang City has accelerated construction of seven hundred-billion-yuan industries and the “12 plus 1” advantageous industrial chains. A number of ten-billion-yuan flagship industrial projects, such as New Kinpo, Huawei, and caprolactam, and a number of major energy projects have been steadily advanced. The industrial momentum has continued to increase.

A batch of old industrial bases have been transformed and upgraded. There are 1,295 industrial enterprises above designated size in Hengyang City, and the power transmission and transformation equipment industry is making every effort to be included into the national advanced manufacturing industry cluster.

Chenzhou City has carried forward the construction of a demonstration zone for the transformation and upgrading of resource-based industries. The “depression of the mining capital” has emerged as an “industrial highland”.

Xiangtan City has been changed from “simple manufacturing” to “intelligent manufacturing”, and the industrial chains of new energy and automobile manufacturing, electronic information and new generation information technology, advanced electric drive and wind power equipment industry, and high-quality steel and new materials are flourishing.
