The WND took the lead in the country in upgrading and transforming industries, phasing out outdated production capacity, building special industrial parks and developing emerging industries.

A modern industrial system featuring IoT and digital industry, integrated circuits, modern service, artificial intelligence, and hydrogen cells has taken shape in the district.

The WND is currently home to more than 1,400 technology enterprises involved in IoT and is listed among the top 10 development zones in China for comprehensive strength in the biological medicine industry.

Over the following years, the WND will rely on its solid industrial foundation, strong capital strength, and competitive innovation capacity to encourage local enterprises to explore digital transformation so as to promote the high-quality development of the industrial economy.

The district will also popularize professional industrial internet platforms to help relevant enterprises better manage equipment, reduce costs, and improve efficiency and product quality.

The energy management platform for industrial parks in the WND, for example, has improved their energy operating efficiency by 15 percent and reduced their energy consumption by six percent.
