First, to promote the growth of key industries. There are some industries in the industrial sector is large, the output value of more than 1% of GDP, such as electronics, automotive, steel, non-ferrous, petrochemicals, etc., plays a vital role in stabilizing growth. To do everything possible, find ways to stabilize these industries.
Second, increase investment. The “14th Five-Year Plan” series of plans have been deployed many major projects, major projects, to be implemented, the formation of more physical workload. At the same time to promote industry integration, encourage financial institutions, capital markets to increase support for the manufacturing industry. To give full play to the leading role of the government’s industrial investment fund, drive social capital to increase investment. At the same time, we should do a good job of foreign investment project services to encourage foreign investors to expand investment in China.
Third, expand consumption. First of all, we should stabilize the consumption of new energy vehicles and other bulk consumption, while continuing to carry out intelligent home appliances, green building materials to the countryside, and promote the manufacturing industry “three products” action (increase variety, improve quality, create brand).
Fourth, to play a local initiative. To support the eastern region to accelerate the development of advanced manufacturing, consolidate and enhance export advantages. To support the central and western regions to actively undertake industrial transfer, to create a new growth pole. To support the northeast region to accelerate the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, the development of strategic emerging industries, while playing Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Yangtze River Delta, Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao synergy effect. Encourage the industrial provinces to take the lead and support the development of manufacturing industries around the world to contribute to stable growth.
