Xiangshan Industrial Zone, relying on it’s great locotional advantages and close to Ningbo and Zhoushan Port, will fully bring itself to the development of the whole Ningbo. A Shanghai-Xiangshan “2.5 hour transportation circle” and Ningbo-Xiangshan “half hour economic circle” will take shape after the completion of Xiangshan Harbor Bridge, which will make Xiangshan become an important traffic hub of Ningbo.
With the advanced developing concept, Xiangshan Industrial Zone aims to build a new characteristic ecological coastal urban area, with the coordinated growth of primary, secondary and tertiary industry, by realizing the “port-bridge-sea” interaction and “industry-commerce-service” interactive developing model. First, in the industrial layout, fully embody the port, coastal and ecological characteristics, and develop storage, logistics and port transportation, to build a big eastern characteristic port in Ningbo.

At present, the number of the settled industrial enterprises adds up to 200. Datang Wushashan Power Plant PhaseⅠ(with investment of 10 billion CNY), Zhejiang Xinle Shipyard Co.,Ltd., Ningbo Rixing Casting Industry Co., Ltd. and other costal projects are all up and running. Besides, projects like CNPC Heavy Industry(Ningbo), saline water conversion, Zhongyang Shipbuilding Industry Co., Ltd. are still under massive construction, and the bases of equipment manufacturing and ship building begin to take shape. Meanwhile, stereoscopic traffic network are rapidly emerging by the building of Xiangshan Harbor Bridge and the launch in early stage of the first class ring road of Xiangshan port.
In the next few years, Xiangshan Industrial Zone will take the building of Xiangshan Harbor Bridge as an opportunity, attract more investment and accelarate the pace of development and construction with the advantage of port shoreline. To become a foreign investment compact district, a science and technology innovation core area, a saving and intensive use demostration zone, and the first district of structural reforms, Xiangshan Industrial Zone makes further integration of resources, layout optimization and improvement of functions with a view to quality improvement.
