Chapter 1: Achievements during the 11th five-year period

During the 11th Five-year Period, Fengxian District kept improving people’s livelihood, social undertakings and thus realized all the targets set in the 11th Five-year Plan.

1. The economy remained stable and developed fast

During the 11th five-year period, the Fengxian District economy maintained stable and quick development, thus the economy improved both in quantity and in quality. The added value of the service industry in the district rose to 49.35 billion yuan (US$7.7 billion) in 2010 at an annual rate of 17.2 percent. Fixed asset investment reached 20.49 billion yuan in 2010, and the total investment in the five years reached 77.39 billion yuan at an annual growth rate of 12 percent. The retail volume reached 25.08 billion yuan, an annual growth of 18.3 percent. Export reached US$4.7 billion, an annual growth of 31.4 percent. The financial income of the district level reached 4.04 billion yuan, an annual growth of 14 percent. The energy consumption for every 10,000 yuan gross domestic product dropped 20 percent at the end of 2010 compared with 2006, 5 percentage points lower than the target of the 11th Five-year.

2. Continued upgrading of industrial structures

We are bound to the policy of developing both modern manufacture and modern service industries at the same time. And we made great efforts to push forward the construction of industrial areas and innovative areas in Fengxian. The proportion of the primary industry, secondary industry and tertiary industry has been adjusted from 4.4:66.1:29.5 in 2005 to 3.2:64.9:31.9 in 2010. The volume of the secondary industry is continually growing, and the modern manufacturing industry including six strategic new industries and eight traditional industries are at a preliminary stage of development.
The tertiary industry rose at annual rate of 18.5% during the 11th five-year period, 2 percent faster than the total value-add of the district over the same period. The development of modern service industries, including logistics (transport, post and storage), IT, finance and banking and real estate has accelerated. In addition, a modern agriculture system has been established in Fengxian District.

3. Good achievement on urban construction and management

The aims set for the World Expo 2010 Shanghai have been exceeded in Fengxian District, including the 600 Day Action Plan for the World Expo in Fengxian District. The operation of urban management during the World Expo was excellent and orderly. The Shanghai Municipal Government recognized the construction of Nanqiao New City as a key new city. All key projects in the district have been carried out smoothly: the Second Minpu Bridge opened to traffic; and construction on the Xidu Metro Station has started.
During the 11th five-year period, 520 new bus stations have been set up and 132 kilometers of new and innovated roads have been constructed. The environment in the district keeps improving with green coverage expanding to 25.8 percent and 100 percent of waste were properly treated. The fourth round of the three-year environmental protection action plan was carried out smoothly. The development of a beach area also made good progress.

4. Social welfare development pushed forward.

Public service, education, healthcare and social security have all developed steadily. The livelihood of residents has kept improving with the registered unemployment rate coming in at 4.3 percent. Social security was improved with 98 percent of the rural population taking part in rural insurance schemes and 100 percent of the urban population joining medical insurance schemes. Benefits for senior people, women and disabled have had great achievements.

5. The construction of a new rural area progressed.

Zhuanghang Town was selected as one of nine test areas for the construction of a new rural area in Shanghai. In Fengxian District, altogether 1,115 bridges have been renovated, and 4,504 houses in rural area have been upgraded. The disposable income of the rural area in 2010 reached 13,180 yuan per household.

6. Government service ability keeps improving

All the achievements of Fengxian District were made possible by the implementation of a scientific outlook on development by the Party and public service mindset. At the same time, we must have a clear mind that there were still some problems and difficulties in the 11th Five-year Period, for example: the industrial development base and innovation ability are still weak, the economic production volume and financial income are still relatively small in scale, and social projects and management can hardly meet the demand of people.
