With 200,000 market entities, Zhuji ranks 10th among the top 100 counties in China for overall competitiveness and 11th in high-quality development. It was also named the best investment city by Zhejiang Business in 2022. Zhuji is now positioned for accelerated growth, driven by its evolving “strong magnet” business environment.

“Open, accommodating, and inclusive!” said a Zhuji government official when asked about the secret to creating a “directional” business environment and enhancing regional competitiveness based on its unique strengths and characteristics.

In recent years, Zhuji has deeply implemented the “No. 1 reform project” to optimize its business environment. This includes systematically improving five major environments, iteratively optimizing a “1+9” policy system for high-quality economic development, and innovating the “Fengqiao-style” business support model. The efficient operation of the “Pro-Clean Government-Business Conference” service platform has made Zhuji one of the most dynamic and creative cities in the Yangtze River Delta region.

Building a New Open Landscape

In the era of big data, creating a favorable business environment requires leveraging digital reform. Over the past two years, Zhuji has focused on the “digital economy” industry and technological advantages, establishing the Intelligent Vision “Ten Thousand Mu and Hundred Billion” new industrial platform. This platform has attracted over 40 enterprises, including iFlytek, Lucent Technology, and Xinyun Semiconductor, with investments exceeding 50 billion yuan and a total output value of 12.48 billion yuan in 2022, a 136.8% year-on-year increase.

“We are currently focusing on precision investment in leading companies in the upstream and downstream segments of the industrial chain to form a healthy industrial development ecosystem,” said a Zhuji official. The city regards the Intelligent Vision “Ten Thousand Mu and Hundred Billion” new industrial platform as a major development strategy, providing comprehensive support including specialized policies, a large industrial fund, a dedicated industrial park, several innovation hubs, and specialized events to vigorously promote the development of the intelligent vision industry cluster.

Geographic advantage is fundamental to development. Zhuji has advanced its business environment initiatives: in 2018, it introduced the “Standard Land + Commitment System” reform, creating the “Zhuji speed” for project implementation; in 2020, it launched 60 measures to optimize the business environment; and the “2022 Zhuji Business Environment Optimization Implementation Plan” proposed 38 specific measures.

Talent density reflects future development potential. As entrepreneurial innovation accelerates, Zhuji’s demand for talent is high. In 2022, Zhuji was home to 41 national-level leading talents and 26 provincial-level leading talents, ranking first among all counties (cities, districts) in Zhejiang Province.

By leveraging “openness,” Zhuji has built a business environment supported by favorable timing, geographical advantage, and human resources. In 2022, Zhuji’s GDP reached 165.9 billion yuan, a 4.6% year-on-year increase, ranking third among all counties (cities, districts) in the province. The effect of industrial growth is becoming increasingly evident.

Building a “Bridge” Between Government and Businesses

Recently, “Yangchun Shanyue · FengFUN Leisure Resort” in Yangchun Village, Fengqiao Town, Zhuji, has seen booming business, with tourists coming for barbecues and camping. The resort can host about 4,000 visitors each weekend, generating over 11.5 million yuan in revenue so far.

Since the resort’s establishment last year, Yangchun Village has formed a special team to handle policies for 107 households through land transfers, monetary compensation, shareholding dividends, and land swaps, ensuring the smooth implementation of the project. During the trial operation, village officials maintained order on-site and effectively resolved 15 disputes. “A good business environment is productivity and competitiveness,” said a Fengqiao Town official.

“Hope to host industry exhibitions and organize centralized raw material procurement.” Recently, Zhuji held the 23rd “Pro-Clean Government-Business Conference” for new-generation entrepreneurs, where ten business representatives shared their suggestions based on actual business needs. Relevant department and town officials provided on-the-spot answers and solutions.

“The monthly ‘Pro-Clean Government-Business Conference’ is a new platform for optimizing the business environment. It connects the government and businesses through informal meetings, encouraging proactive engagement from entrepreneurs and more precise policymaking from us, forming a service loop of ‘businesses posing questions, government providing answers,'” explained an official.

Continuous improvement of the business environment has attracted more significant and high-quality projects. From January to April this year, Zhuji introduced 24 projects with investments over 100 million yuan, totaling 37.24 billion yuan. Thirteen major projects were included in provincial or higher-level plans, with Zhuji leading Shaoxing in the completion rate of major projects in the provincial “Thousand Projects, Trillion Yuan” initiative.

Deepening Reform of “Delegation, Regulation, and Service”

“‘Fengqiao Xiangfei’ brand has a long history, and with the involvement of public security in setting geographical indication product standards, it’s off to a great start for brand upgrading,” said Jin Hangbiao, director of the China Xiangfei Museum, to Zhao Zhen, head of the Food, Drug, Environmental and Intellectual Property Crimes Unit of Zhuji Public Security Bureau.

In April this year, Zhuji Public Security Bureau introduced 20 measures to serve economic and social development, collaborating with seven departments and relevant towns to protect brands in traditional industries like pipes, hosiery, pearls, and Tongsan liquor. These measures include innovative content such as establishing internal enterprise conflict resolution mechanisms, perfecting a three-level linkage mechanism with community police, coordinators, and enterprise information officers, integrating digital applications for industry chain warnings, and promoting the “cloud assistance” service model.

Since the beginning of this year, Zhuji has implemented a new round of actions to tackle issues in governance, legal, market, economic, and cultural environments, creating the “Fengqiao-style” business support model and advancing measures to assist enterprises. They have optimized the “Jiyang Legal Advisor” platform, innovated the “E-Station” for resident police in enterprises, developed a “tolerance acceptance” and “one-stop” one-day service mechanism for enterprise establishment, and opened a “green window” for enterprise registration. By April this year, Zhuji had over 200,000 various business entities, continuously stimulating market vitality and creativity.

拥有20万家市场主体,位居全国综合竞争力百强县第10位,全国高质量发展百强县第11位,成功获评2022浙商最佳投资城市……当前的诸暨,已经站在加速奔跑的新起点。一路高歌的背后,是当地迭代升级的营商环境“强磁场”在发力。

“开放、大气、包容!”谈及根据自身优势和特色,在打造“有方向性”的营商环境、提升区域竞争力方面有何秘诀时,诸暨市政府有关负责人脱口而出。

近年来,该市深入实施营商环境优化提升“一号改革工程”,系统提升“五大环境”,迭代优化“1+9”经济高质量发展政策体系,创新“枫桥式”护企优商模式,高效运行“政企亲清会”服务平台,一系列组合拳下,诸暨已成为长三角区域最富活力、最具创造力的城市之一。

构建开放新格局

大数据时代,打造营商环境必须抓住数字化改革这个“牛鼻子”,打造区域良好“天时”。这两年,诸暨市聚焦“数字经济”产业风口和技术支撑优势,智能视觉“万亩千亿”新产业平台拔地而起,目前该平台已吸引科大讯飞、朗讯科技、芯云半导体等企业项目40多个,投资超500亿元,2022年总产值达124.8亿元,同比增长136.8%。

“目前,我们正紧盯上下游产业链细分领域的头部企业开展精准招商,形成良好的产业发展生态。”诸暨市相关负责人表示,该市将打造智能视觉“万亩千亿”新产业平台作为重大发展战略,给予一系列保障,包括一个专项政策、一大产业基金、一个专业园区、一批科创飞地、一项专业赛事,大力推动智能视觉产业集群发展。

地方要发展,“地利”是基础。诸暨市在营商环境建设上高位推进:2018年,推行“标准地+承诺制”改革,创造了项目落地的“诸暨速度”;2020年推出优化营商环境60条;出台《诸暨市2022年优化营商环境实施方案》,提出38条具体措施……

人才密度是未来发展潜力的量化反映。随着创业创新热潮加速掀起,诸暨求才若渴。2022年,诸暨入选国家级领军人才41人、省级领军人才26人,均居全省各县(市、区)首位。

以“开放”为抓手,诸暨打造营商环境的天时、地利、人和“三大支撑”,凝聚事业腾飞磅礴力量。2022年,该市实现地区生产总值1659亿元,同比增长4.6%,总量位居全省各县(市、区)第三,产业增量“大珠小珠落玉盘”效果不断显现。

架设“政企连心桥”

连日来,诸暨市枫桥镇阳春村里的“阳春山月·枫FUN游乐度假村”生意火爆,前来烧烤露营的游客络绎不绝。负责人张海涛介绍,目前度假村每个周末能接待游客4000人左右,累计营收已达1150多万元。

据了解,去年“阳春山月”进驻以来,阳春村成立专班,用土地流转、货币补偿、入股分红、土地置换等方式完成107户农户政策处理,流转土地150余亩,确保了项目的顺利落地。试营业期间,村干部还在现场维持秩序,有效处理矛盾纠纷15起。“好的营商环境就是生产力、竞争力。”枫桥镇相关负责人表示。

“希望举办行业展会,集中组织原材料采购。”……近日,诸暨市举行第二十三期“政企亲清会”新生代企业家专场,10位企业家代表根据企业发展实情提出不少意见建议,与会部门和镇街负责人结合各自职能,现场答疑解惑。

“每月一次的‘政企亲清会’,是我们打造‘三服务’2.0版及优化营商环境的新载体。以茶话会的形式,架起‘政企连心桥’,这既能发挥企业家的主动性,也能让我们施政更为精准,构建形成‘企业出题、政府答题’的服务闭环。”相关负责人说。

营商环境的持续向“优”,让更多大项目、好项目落地生根、开花结果。今年1至4月,诸暨已引进亿元以上项目24个、计划总投资372.4亿元;13个重大项目进入省级以上盘子,省“千项万亿”工程重大项目投资完成率居绍兴全市第一。

深化“放管服”改革

“‘枫桥香榧’品牌历史悠久,如今有了公安部门的加入,一起制定地理标识产品标准,这为品牌升级蜕变开了个好头。”日前,中国香榧博物馆馆长金航标对诸暨市公安局食药环知森大队大队长赵桢说。

据了解,今年4月初,诸暨市公安局出台服务经济社会发展二十条举措,协同7个部门与相关镇街,对诸暨的管业、袜业、珍珠、同山烧等几大传统产业开展品牌保护行动。这二十条举措增加了不少创新内容,如组建企业内部矛盾纠纷排查制度,完善“社区民警-协管员-企业信息员”三级联动机制;系统整合产业链预警、猎空、“枫桥式”企业线上服务等数字应用,建设护企优商全链系统;推广“云帮办”服务模式等。

今年以来,诸暨市实施新一轮攻坚行动,在政务环境、法治环境、市场环境、经济生态环境和人文环境等领域持续精准发力,打造“枫桥式”护企优商模式,全面推进助企纾困行动。优化“暨阳法顾”平台、创新驻企警务“E”站、形成“容缺受理”和企业开办全流程“一件事”一日办结等服务机制、开设企业主体登记“绿色专窗”,为新引入的创业人才做好政策推介、全程代办。据了解,至今年4月,诸暨全市各类经营主体已突破20万家,市场活力和创造力得到持续激发。
