Jiangbei takes the lead in eliminating backward industrial capacity in Ningbo with the last hardware processing operator evacuating from the workshop of the former Luxhill Lighting Company at No. 800, Dongchang Road.
The workshop of the former Luxhill Lighting Company, covering a total area of 11,332 square meters, had been rented and occupied by over 30 operators of stone processing, freight car parking, and underground laundry workshops. Due to the low output, the high risk of fire safety, bad environmental messy and traffic congestion in the surrounding area, the surrounding residents complain constantly. Since the very “backward capacity cluster” does no good to the industrial development in Jiangbei District, it is a must to eliminate it.
Early on January 4, a special meeting on elimination of backward industrial capacity was held in Yongjiang Sub-district and 9 departments, led by Jiangbei Economic and Information Technology Bureau, and composed of Jiangbei Comprehensive Administration Bureau, Jiangbei Safety Production Supervision Bureau and Jiangbei Fire Brigade, unite together for the elimination of the backward industrial capacity in the workshop of the former Luxhill Lighting Co., Ltd. After 2 weeks’ efforts, all the backward businesses agreed to the elimination and the block manages to “empty its cage for new birds” of automobile 4S shop, etc.
Jiangbei Hongtang Fashion Cultural Innovation Block is another typical case of “emptying its cage for new birds”, transforming from a backward capacity cluster into a cultural innovation block for leisure, venture and innovation and fashion ecology.
Ever since last year, Jiangbei has been striving for elimination of backward industrial capacity and till the end of last month, 358 enterprises (projects) have been investigated; 304 enterprises (projects) have been eliminated; 54 enterprises (projects) transformed.
