Abstract : In recent years, IT sector has been witnessing steady progress in Jiangxi, among which the three major industries, namely the smart mobile terminals, the LED lighting and digital audio and video equipment, have achieved outstanding development.
I. Current State
In recent years, IT sector has been witnessing steady progress in Jiangxi, among which the three major industries, namely the smart mobile terminals, the LED lighting and digital audio and video equipment, have achieved outstanding development. Industrial clusters are releasing reinforced effects as a result of intensive development, a great number of leading enterprises including Hipad Intelligent, Nanchang O-film Tech, Jiangxi LCE Optics, Lattice Power Jiangxi settled down and 12 industrial clusters came into being including the photoelectric communication cluster in Nanchang National High-tech Industrial Development Zone, the photo-electronics cluster in Nanchang State-level Economic and Technological Development Zone, IT cluster in Nanchang Airport Economic Zone, communication terminal cluster in Jinggangshan Economic and Technological Development Zone, digital audio and video cluster in Xinfeng County, IT cluster in Longnan Economic and Technological Development Zone, the photo-electronics cluster in Gao’an, digital audio and video cluster in Ji’an County, touch display cluster in Taihe County, communication transfer cluster in Jizhou District, photo-electronics cluster in Xinyu, IT cluster in Fuzhou High-tech Industrial Development Zone.
In 2017, the IT sector generated CNY 217.32 billion in prime operating revenue, up by 19.2% from the previous year, among which CNY 153.75 billion was accomplished by the 3 leading IT industries of LED lighting, smart mobile terminals and digital audio and video, up by 20.3% from the previous year, accounting for 70.7% of the total. Tax payment of IT sector totaled CNY 13.17 billion, up by 16.4% from the previous year.
II. Development Goals
Jiangxi has placed importance on IT sector as one of its advantaged sectors and has been pressing ahead with the 3 plus 2 program, i.e. enhancing the 3 advantaged industries including smart mobile terminals, LED lighting and digital audio and video industries and reinforcing the 2 high-end strategic industries including integrated circuit and Beidou navigation system. The IT sector is expected to generate a prime operating revenue of CNY 300 billion in 2020.
III. Industrial Distribution
As for smart intelligent terminal industry, focus on Nanchang, Jiujiang and Ji’an, improve the manufacturing capacity of smart cellphones and on-board communication equipment and make full use of leading enterprises to give full play to the brand effects; rely on leading component manufacturers and create integrated component manufacturing chain so as to develop technological competence in new display materials, touch screen modules, multilayer PCB and other key links; actively explore cutting-edge technologies of bio-metric identification and AI and step up development of new-type smart terminals including smart cellphones, tablet PC and wearable equipment.
As for digital audio and video, focus on Ji'an and Ganzhou to develop intelligent electrical appliances and audio and video equipment; complying with the new trends of intelligent technologies and internet, to develop integrated equipment including large and medium-sized networked smart LCD TV, glasses-free 3D TV and networked HD video cameras and improve relevant products including LCD monitors and display modules, LCD TV energy drivers, blue-ray high-capacity discs and moderate and high-end headsets; put emphasis on on-board audio and video equipment including on-board audio and video navigation system, DVD players, digital audio equipment, digital players and relevant components and vigorously encourage the development of on-board Beidou Navigation system, TPMS and other on-board electronics.
As for integrated circuits, focus on Nanchang, interacting with Jiujiang and Ji’an, and initiate from smart mobile terminals, digital audio and video and chips of wearable equipment, speed up the introduction of leading R&D enterprises and advanced IC manufacturing, packaging and testing technologies from home and abroad, attach special significance to key manufacturing technologies of mobile internet chips, photo communication chips, RF chips, Beidou Navigation chips and high-end general chips, etc. and build up a number of competitive new-type IC industrial bases.
IV. Major Directions and Target Regions in Investment Promotion
