The zone has five pillar industries: fluorosilicone new materials, electronic chemicals, photovoltaic new energy, high-end equipment manufacturing, and biomedical health.
In 2017, the total industrial output value of the zone reached 58.5 billion yuan ($8.66 billion), of which the output value of the five major local industries was 48.44 billion yuan, accounting for 82.8 percent of the total number. Total fiscal revenue increased by 42 percent year-on-year, with general public budget revenue increasing by 34.4 percent. Fixed asset investment achieved year-on-year growth of 18 percent.
