The industrial added value of enterprises at designated- and above-level scale reached 3.7 trillion yuan (US$572 billion), up by 2 percent year on year, Shenzhen Radio said Tuesday, citing a local official.

At the program, Bridge of Voice, Jia Xingdong, director of Shenzhen Industry and Information Bureau, said it was the second year for the city to be at the top of the Chinese cities in industrial output.

In 2020, Shenzhen had made breakthroughs in new infrastructure and new carrier construction. The city became the first city in the country with full coverage of the 5G network. The city built 46,600 base stations and nearly 10,000 multi-function poles.

The technology and industry revolutions will push forward integration of 5G and industrial Internet and accelerate the construction of Digital China and Smart Society.

Shenzhen’s industrial Internet is entering a fast-track development and takes the lead in platform quality and diversity of application scenarios.

In December 2018, Huawei, Foxconn and Hualong were brought into the comprehensive industrial Internet platforms of the Ministry of Industry and Information.

In December 2020, Huawei, Foxconn and Tencent were selected into the list of cross-industry industrial Internet platform of Ministry of Industry and Information, taking up one fifth of the total.

In scenario applications, Industrial Internet has been used in electronic manufacturing, machinery equipment manufacturing, precision manufacturing, bio-pharmacy manufacturing and garment manufacturing. Huawei and Foxconn have become State-level demonstration enterprises in industrial Internet application. In March 2020, Bao’an Industrial Internet Demonstration Base were officially named as a State-level demonstration base.

Nearly half of Shenzhen enterprises reduced their cost through application of industrial Internet. The automation operation of its production processes improved efficiency by 30 percent and benefits by 2.5 times, reduced inventory turnover by 15 percent and labor cost by 88 percent.

According to a report cited by Jia, 52.5 percent of enterprises reduced their cost after application of industrial Internet, 53.3 percent of enterprises improved their product performances and 29.4 percent of enterprises reduced loss of materials.

Shenzhen worked out an action plan for development of industrial Internet (2018-2020) to construct the industrial Internet industry from forming three systems of core support, integration application and industrial ecology. By the end of 2020, the bureau had provided 455 million yuan in special funds to support 1,030 projects.
