Not long ago, Nestlé, the world's largest food company, increased its capital in Tianjin Binhai New Area (TBNA for short) by 730 million yuan to build the first plant-based product production line in Asia and other four projects. As Nestlé’s largest investment in China this year, this capital increase has attracted much attention, laying the foundation for its continued expansion of production and maintaining stable growth. At the same time, it also used its firm determination to increase capital and expand production to invest in the industrial development of TBNA and the construction of the business environment.


Nurturing hope in a crisis. Since the beginning of 2020, in the face of the severe test brought by the coronavirus pandemic and the complex and changeable domestic and foreign environment, Binhai New Area has actively coordinated efforts to promote epidemic prevention and control as well as economic and social development. The main economic indicators have rebounded significantly, and the introduction of new momentum has accelerated significantly. The level of project construction has been significantly improved, and the market vitality has been significantly enhanced.


Major economic indicators rebounded significantly.


Investment is one of the important driving forces of economic development. Focusing on introducing new kinetic energy and insisting that projects are kings, Binhai New Area continues to promote the implementation of a large number of key projects to make up for shortcomings, consolidate foundations, store kinetic energy, and promote development. Recently, the project of China Great Wall (Tianjin) Independent Innovation Base settled in Binhai High-tech Industrial Zone with a registered capital of 100 million yuan. It is committed to building an autonomous and safe computer intelligent manufacturing center based in Tianjin, radiating the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, and facing the Bohai Rim. The formation of a nationally produced CPU-operating system-complete machine industrial chain can realize the further development and growth of the independent industrial chain in Binhai New Area.


Statistics show that the main economic indicators of the new area in the first half of 2020 have rebounded significantly. Compared with the first quarter, the actual utilization of domestic capital increased significantly in the first half of 2020 by 15%, an increase of 11.5% over the first quarter. The growth of fixed asset investment, actual use of foreign capital, foreign trade import and export, and foreign trade exports accelerated, turning from negative to positive, of which fixed asset investment increased by 4.8%, an increase of 22.6 percentage points from the first quarter; actual use of foreign capital increased by 4.2%, an increase of 14.7 percentage points from the first quarter; foreign trade imports and exports increased by 2.9%, an increase of 5.9 percentage points from the first quarter; foreign trade exports increased by 5.3%, an increase of 14.5 percentage points from the first quarter.


It is commendable that in the regulated industry, the output value of the computer and other electronic equipment manufacturing industry bucked the trend and increased by 13.2%; the automobile manufacturing industry began to resume production in the second quarter, and the output value of June increased by 28.6% year-on-year.


The level of project construction has improved significantly.


“Entering Tianjin is a major development strategy of Renhe Yikang Group this year. The high-quality business environment and strong atmosphere of technological innovation in TBNA, as well as the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei collaborative innovation demonstration effect of Binhai-Zhongguancun Science Park, are the important reasons why the group chose to settle here.” The relevant person in charge of Renhe Yikang Group, one of the top 100 pharmaceutical R&D enterprises in China, said that the group will invest 1.6 billion yuan in the construction of sales headquarters, R&D centers and pharmaceutical production bases in the new area. It is expected that the total operating income will exceed 14 billion yuan in the next five years, promoting the biomedical industry cluster in TBNA to become bigger and stronger.


The implementation of high-quality projects will inject new vitality into the sustainable development of TBNA and add a strong boost. According to statistics, in the first half of this year, 3445 domestic and foreign-funded projects were launched in the new area, with an investment of 309.2 billion yuan, an increase of 52% and 62% year-on-year respectively. In particular, the number of key projects for Beijing’s non-capital functional relief reached 534, with an agreed investment amount of 117.1 billion yuan. At present, there are 1072 major projects over 50 million yuan in TBNA, with a total planned investment of 1,018 billion yuan.


Introduction of new kinetic energy has accelerated significantly.


On July 20, on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the establishment of the Institute for Electronics and Information Technology in Tianjin, Tsinghua University ("Tsinghua Institute of Electronics"), the institute again cited "strong aid": the Medication-Industry Transformation Innovation Center jointly established by Institute of Precision Medicine, Tsinghua University was inaugurated, and at the same time "married" the School of Continuing Education of Tsinghua University to jointly create a "Tsinghua University Continuing Education Electronic Information Talent Training Base" in Tianjin. This has also become a microcosm of the continuous iterative upgrade of the innovation carrier of TBNA.


It is reported that from January to June, 2 national specialized makerspaces and 5 national registered makerspaces were added in TBNA. At present, there are 24 national-level makerspaces here. There were 9 new R&D institutions above the municipal level, and the total number of R&D institutions above the municipal level in TBNA reached 518. The carrier of the innovation and entrepreneurship platform gave full play to the "magnet effect" and introduced and cultivated many high-quality projects. Among them, there is only Tsinghua Institute of Electronics, and there are currently 40 companies incubating.


The introduction of new kinetic energy is a major historical opportunity for the high-quality development of TBNA, as well as the driving force, hope and future for its development. In the first half of this year, TBNA newly recognized 1966 national technology-based small and medium-sized enterprises; 662 new eagle companies were newly added; 121 new gazelle companies were newly added; the number of innovative leading (cultivating) companies declared reached 65, an increase of 41% over last year; 2 new technology-based listed companies. With the support of these new kinetic energy projects, the development quality and benefits of TBNA have been significantly improved.


Market vitality is significantly enhanced.


Only by stabilizing market entities can employment and the economy be stabilized. Since the beginning of 2020, the TBNA has insisted on taking the "stability in six areas" and "six guarantees" as an important political task, and solidly promoted the implementation of various tasks. In terms of safeguarding market entities, efforts will be made in fiscal and taxation, finance, government services, and business environment to fully ensure the smooth operation of market entities and stimulate market vitality.


According to statistics, from the perspective of market players, in the first half of 2020, there were 24,967 new market players in TBNA, a year-on-year increase of 37%; registered capital of 387.53 billion yuan, an increase of 1.1 times. In terms of talent introduction, the TBNA issued 8,166 permits for relocation in the first half of 2020; 7,158 talents handled settlement procedures, a year-on-year increase of 12.4%. In terms of the financial market, the balance of domestic and foreign currency deposits of financial institutions in the new area was 642.14 billion yuan, accounting for 18.8% of Tianjin, an increase of 10.1%; the loan balance was 12059.9 billion yuan, accounting for 31.8% of Tianjin, an increase of 5.1%.
