Shajing to build semiconductor industrial cluster
With a focus on the research, development and manufacturing of third-generation semiconductor materials, a semiconductor industrial base is set for construction in Shajing Subdistrict in Bao’an.
Among the 37 key areas supported by the Shenzhen Municipal Government, Shajing Subdistrict will center on the development of the integrated circuit industry.
According to the plan, the subdistrict will free up developmental space through urban renewal on which to build platforms for designing power electronic devices, packaging, and tests to continuously refine the industrial chain.
The semiconductor industrial base covers an area of about 1.6 square kilometers from Xinqiao Subdistrict to the north, Gangtou Road to the east, Beiditang Second Road and Huanzhen Road to the west, and Haoxiang Road to the south.
At present, the subdistrict has about 10,000 square meters of land officially reserved for industrial development. In the future, the subdistrict will further free up about 150,000 square meters for industrial land and about 62,000 square meters for industrial housing through urban renewal.
The core area of the industrial base stretches from Yueheng Road to the east and Huanzhen Road to the west and from Gangsheng Road to the south to Beihuan Road to the north, covering 52,924.8 square meters and a built-up area of 338,000 square meters
In the core area, a first-class eco-industrial park will be built and priority will be given to introducing emerging industrial projects such as sensors and Internet of Things, virtual reality and artificial intelligence, and mobile intelligent terminals and wearable devices.
As an important industrial town with a strong industrial foundation and perfect industrial chain, Shajing has attracted a legion of enterprises to settle in the subdistrict over the past decades.
Moreover, three pillar manufacturing industries, namely, computer, communication and other electronic equipment manufacturing, electrical machinery and equipment manufacturing, and rubber and plastics manufacturing, have kept prospering while giving momentum to the growth of other industries.
So far, there are more than 4,000 industrial enterprises in Shajing, 441 industrial enterprises above the designated scale, 419 national high-tech enterprises, 3 listed enterprises and 18 enterprises listed on the Beijing-based new third board.
In the first three quarters of 2018, Shajing’s gross domestic product reached 29.5 billion yuan (US$4.27 billion), with a growth rate of 9 percent. The gross industrial output value of enterprises above the designated scale amounted to 87.174 billion yuan, up 17.6 percent year on year.
Meanwhile, the added value of enterprises above the designated scale totaled 18.935 billion yuan, up 11.8 percent from a year earlier. Retail sales of social consumer goods totaled 4.583 billion yuan, up 85 percent year on year. Total import and export volume reached 49.075 billion yuan, up 19.4 percent from a year ago.
