In the first quarter, the development of industry and information technology achieved a stable start
Showing a stable and positive trend
Zhao Zhiguo, chief engineer and spokesperson of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology:
Ladies and gentlemen, friends from the press, good afternoon! Thank you for your concern and support for the cause of industry and information technology. Next, I will briefly introduce the development of industry and informatization in the first quarter of this year.
Since the beginning of this year, in the face of the complex and changing external environment and various difficulties, risks and challenges, under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has fully implemented the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Party and conscientiously implemented the central economic work. The decision-making and deployment of the meeting and the National Two Sessions insisted on placing stable growth in a prominent position, actively cooperating with various regions and departments to implement policies, speed up the resumption of work and production, strengthen assistance to companies to bail out, and promote the smooth operation of the Industrial economy in the first quarter. In general, the development of industry and informatization achieved a steady start in the first quarter, showing a stable and positive trend.
First, the industrial economy remains stable. There are three main characteristics. First, industrial production has picked up steadily. In the first quarter, the added value of industrial enterprises above designated size increased by 3% year-on-year, an increase of 0.3 percentage points higher than that in the fourth quarter of last year, reversing the continuous downward trend since October last year. According to data from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the production and sales of automobiles in March increased by 15.3% and 9.7% year-on-year respectively, and the production and sales of new energy vehicles in March increased by 44.8% and 34.8% year-on-year respectively. Second, manufacturing investment continued to grow steadily. In the first quarter, manufacturing investment increased by 7% year-on-year, 1.9 percentage points higher than the national fixed asset investment, maintaining a rapid growth rate on the basis of a high base in the same period for two consecutive years. The third is that the industrial province plays an obvious role in playing the leading role. The industrial growth rate of Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu and other major industrial provinces is significantly higher than the national level. Since March, the industrial economy of Guangdong, Zhejiang and other provinces has picked up momentum.
Second, the development trend of advanced manufacturing industry is good. General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that high-quality development should be firmly grasped as the primary task. Premier Li Qiang focused on the development of advanced manufacturing industries when he visited Beijing for the first time, sending a clear signal of vigorously developing advanced manufacturing industries. We vigorously develop advanced manufacturing and promote the development of high-end, intelligent, and green manufacturing. Solid progress has been made in industrial foundation reconstruction projects and major technical equipment research projects, and significant progress has been made in some areas. ARJ21 has safely transported more than 6.55 million passengers in total, and has recently been put into overseas commercial operation. The world’s largest 24,188 TEU ultra-large container ship was delivered, and the first domestic extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine (ECMO) was successfully developed and certified for the market. In-depth implementation of intelligent manufacturing projects to promote industrial digital transformation. The three major functional systems of industrial internet network, platform, and security have been established, and the scale of the core industry has exceeded 1.2 trillion yuan. Accelerate the promotion of industrial green and low-carbon transformation and development. Accelerate the development of emerging industries such as new energy vehicles and photovoltaics. In the first quarter, fixed asset investment in high-tech manufacturing increased by 15.2% year-on-year, and the output of new energy vehicles, solar cells and other emerging products increased by 22.5% and 53.2% respectively.
Third, the empowering effect of the information and communication industry continues to emerge. We made every effort to strengthen the new infrastructure to strongly support the high-quality economic and social development. In the first quarter, the telecommunications business revenue increased by 7.7% year-on-year. Steadily promote the construction of “dual gigabit” network, the cumulative number of 5G base stations has exceeded 2.64 million, and the number of gigabit access users has exceeded 100 million. Continue to deepen the integration of applications, and fully integrate 5G into 52 national economic categories. Improve application service capabilities, further enhance the supply of mobile Internet application services, and accelerate the demonstration and promotion of excellent cases of Internet application adaptation for aging and barrier-free transformation. Coordinate development and security, introduce policies to promote the development of the data security industry, strengthen the security protection of key information infrastructure in the industry, and ensure the safe and stable operation of basic telecommunications networks.
Fourth, the industrial development environment is further optimized. We insist on a better combination of an effective market and a promising government, and strive to create a good ecology that is conducive to industrial development. In-depth implementation of the “14th Five-Year Plan” in the field of industry and information technology, organizing the formulation of work plans for the steady growth of key industries such as automobiles and electronics. Focusing on the “urgency, difficulty, and hope” of small and medium-sized enterprises, we have introduced a series of policy measures to help stabilize growth, adjust structure and strengthen capabilities in conjunction with relevant departments, and launched the fifth batch of specialized, special and new “little giant” enterprise cultivation work. The 2023 work conference of the inter-ministerial joint meeting of the State Council to reduce the burden on enterprises will be held. Deepen the precise docking of industry and finance, and the national industry-finance cooperation platform has helped enterprises to raise more than 500 billion yuan in total.
Of course, we must also see that the current industrial economic development still faces some difficulties and challenges, but the fundamentals of the long-term sound development of my country’s industrial economic development have not changed, and we are full of confidence in this. In the next step, we will adhere to the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, thoroughly implement the decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, strengthen confidence, innovate with determination, stabilize key industries, support the development of leading enterprises and specialized and new enterprises, and continue to Efforts have been made to lengthen the long board, forge new boards, and make up for the short board, to promote the continued stabilization and improvement of the industrial economy in the second quarter, and to accelerate the development of the information and communication industry, laying a solid foundation for the realization of the annual goals and tasks.
The situation will introduce these. Next, my colleagues and I would like to answer your questions.
In the first quarter, the industrial added value above the designated size stabilized and rebounded, and four measures will be taken simultaneously to promote the steady growth of the industrial economy
Reporter from China Central Radio and Television: Since the beginning of this year, the recovery of the industrial economy has further accelerated, and the PMI has been in the expansion range for three consecutive months. How should we look at the current industrial economy? What measures will be taken in the next step to promote the steady growth of the industrial economy? Thank you.
Zhao Zhiguo: Thank you for your question. In the first quarter, the added value of my country’s industrial enterprises above designated size increased by 3% year-on-year, and the growth rate was 0.3 percentage points higher than that in the fourth quarter of 2022, and the overall stabilization and recovery. From the industry perspective, the production of general equipment, automobiles, and chemical fiber industries turned from a year-on-year decline in the previous two months to growth, and the growth rate of non-ferrous metals, building materials, electrical machinery, and special equipment industries accelerated compared with the previous two months. From a regional perspective, production in the eastern and northeastern regions has further recovered. Among the top ten provinces in the scale of industrial added value, 6 provinces saw their industrial growth rate higher than the national level in the first quarter. Guangdong and Zhejiang had a good recovery momentum. All provinces achieved positive growth. In terms of key products, the output of crude steel, generator sets, and household refrigerators increased by 6.1%, 7.5%, and 8.4% year-on-year respectively. Exports of plastic products, cases and bags, general mechanical equipment, and automobiles still have advantages, achieving double-digit growth year-on-year.
In the next step, we will focus on the following tasks.

In the first quarter, our Ministry conscientiously implemented the decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, adhered to the general tone of the work of seeking progress while maintaining stability, and promoted the high-quality development of the information and communication industry to a new level.
First, the momentum is stronger and the pace of industry development is steady. Emerging businesses have grown rapidly, with Internet data centers, cloud computing, Internet of Things and other business revenues increasing by 24.5% year-on-year, driving telecom business revenues to increase by 4.8 percentage points, and gradually becoming a new source of power for industry development. The income from the telecommunications business increased steadily, with a total of 425.2 billion yuan in the first quarter, a year-on-year increase of 7.7%. The total amount of telecommunications business increased by 18% year-on-year, and the overall operation of the industry is improving.
Second, the foundation is stronger and network capabilities continue to improve. The network foundation is increasingly complete. As of the end of March, my country had accumulatively built more than 2.64 million 5G base stations, and more than 17.93 million ports with Gigabit network service capabilities, realizing “Gigabit connections between cities” and “5G connections between counties and counties”. The scale of computing power is growing rapidly. The ladder-optimized computing power supply system has been preliminarily established, and the computing power scale ranks second in the world, with an annual growth rate of nearly 30%. The development of IPv6 continues to deepen. IPv6 has changed from “usable” to “easy to use”. Mobile network IPv6 traffic has surpassed IPv4 traffic for the first time, accounting for more than 50%, ushering in the Internet era dominated by IPv6.
The third is wider application, and the popularization of high-speed services is accelerated. The scale of connections continues to grow. As of the end of March, my country had 620 million 5G mobile phone users, over 100 million gigabit optical network users, and 1.984 billion mobile Internet of Things users. The proportion of “thing” connections has increased to 53.8%. The foundation of interconnection has been steadily consolidated. Converged applications have been deepened and implemented. 5G applications have covered 52 major categories of the national economy. The number of 5G and gigabit optical network “dual gigabit” network application cases across the country has exceeded 50,000. The mobile Internet of Things has played an important role in digital city construction, smart transportation, Large-scale applications have been realized in fields such as mobile payment.
Fourth, the experience is better, and user services are inclusive and shared. Universal telecommunications services have been promoted in depth, network coverage in rural and remote areas has continued to improve, and 5G networks have been expanded to rural areas, which strongly supports the rural revitalization strategy. The sense of user acquisition continues to improve. In the first quarter, my country’s mobile and fixed broadband download rates increased by 59.9% and 15.1% respectively compared with the same period last year, and mobile data traffic charges continued to decline. Information barrier-free capabilities continued to increase, and the transformation of Internet applications suitable for the elderly was further promoted, and a number of excellent transformation cases of mainstream commonly used websites and mobile APPs were guided to be promoted and applied nationwide.
In the next step, our Ministry will focus on three aspects of work, optimize and strengthen the information and communication industry, and provide solid support for promoting high-quality economic and social development.
The first is to consolidate the foundation of digital facilities. Research and introduce policies and measures to promote the coordinated development of new information infrastructure construction, promote the “broadband frontier”, the “light-seeking action” of gigabit optical networks, the construction of cloud network infrastructure in small and medium-sized cities, and the high-quality development of the mobile Internet of Things, and integrate the promotion of new information infrastructure. infrastructure.

People’s Post and Telegraph reporter: This year is the last year of implementation of the “Industrial Internet Innovation and Development Action Plan (2021-2023)”. The plan proposes that in the next three years, the overall development stage of the industrial Internet will be leapfrogged. May I ask, in order to achieve this goal, what aspects will we focus on this year? Thank you.
Zhao Zhiguo: Thank you for your question. The Industrial Internet is a new strategic infrastructure for industrialization and a key base for the deep integration of the digital economy and the real economy. Over the past two years since the implementation of the Industrial Internet Innovation and Development Action Plan, we have insisted on being moderately ahead of the curve, and the infrastructure has been fully completed. The industrial Internet logo analysis system covers 31 provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities) and 40 industries, serving more than 250,000 enterprises; a comprehensive, characteristic, and professional multi-level industrial Internet platform system has been formed, and the key platform connection equipment exceeds 81 million units (sets). We adhere to the demand orientation, and expand the integration application in depth. The Industrial Internet has covered 45 major categories of the national economy and 166 middle categories, covering more than 85% of the major industrial categories. In the first quarter, we released 218 industrial Internet pilot demonstration projects, including 5G factories, industrial Internet parks, and public service platforms, and created a batch of application practice models to drive factories and parks to “know and use the Internet” and “dare to transfer and know how to transfer” , to accelerate digital transformation. At present, the scale of the core industry of the industrial Internet has exceeded 1.2 trillion yuan, an increase of 15.5% over the previous year.
In the next step, we will focus on large-scale application and high-quality development, and make efforts from the three aspects of policy, technology, and application to guide various regions and industries to further increase their efforts to promote the overall development of the industrial Internet to achieve a stage leap, and to promote emerging industrialization Provides firmer support.
The first is policy guidance and strengthening the guarantee of institutional elements.

This year, another 100 characteristic industrial clusters of small and medium-sized enterprises will be cultivated nationwide
21st Century Business Herald reporter: In the first quarter of this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced the list of characteristic industrial clusters for small and medium-sized enterprises in 2022, which has attracted widespread attention from all walks of life. Can you tell us about the current development of this work? Next, how will the identification and cultivation of characteristic industrial clusters of small and medium-sized enterprises be promoted? Thank you.
Tao Qing: Thank you for your question. The characteristic industrial clusters of small and medium-sized enterprises are located within the scope of county-level divisions, with small and medium-sized enterprises as the main body, focused on leading industries, prominent advantages and characteristics, and industrial clusters with core competitiveness. Our department focuses on the cultivation of clusters in six aspects, including enhancing the advantages of leading industries, promoting digital transformation, accelerating green and low-carbon development, deepening open cooperation, and improving governance and service capabilities, so as to build clusters into specialized and new development centers for small and medium-sized enterprises. Fertile soil, the carrier of regional economic development and growth, and an important fulcrum for the safety and stability of the industrial chain and supply chain.
The first batch of 100 characteristic industrial clusters of small and medium-sized enterprises has four notable characteristics: First, the agglomeration of high-quality small and medium-sized enterprises has achieved outstanding results. More than 28,000 small and medium-sized enterprises have settled in the cluster, contributing more than 1.8 trillion yuan in output value, and there are 55 single champions in the manufacturing industry. There are 294 “little giant” enterprises, 1,487 small and medium-sized enterprises, and about 5,000 innovative small and medium-sized enterprises. High-quality small and medium-sized enterprises account for more than 20% of the total number of enterprises in the cluster. Second, the supply chain of the industrial chain plays an obvious role in strengthening the chain and complementing the chain. The cluster has formed a high-level, specialized supporting capabilities. The third is that the driving effect on the local economy has initially appeared. The leading industries of the cluster are all local pillar industries, contributing 87% of the output value of the cluster, and have played an important role in promoting the high-quality development of the county economy. Fourth, cluster governance and service systems have been continuously improved. More than 70% of clusters have built or introduced national public service demonstration platforms for SMEs, nearly 90% of clusters have established industrial development promotion mechanisms, and more than 90% of clusters have established SME legal The protection mechanism of rights and interests has initially formed a cluster governance pattern of “co-discussion, sharing, co-construction, and co-governance” for small and medium-sized enterprises.
This year, our ministry plans to cultivate another 100 characteristic industrial clusters of small and medium-sized enterprises across the country. We will fully implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, implement the deployment of the Central Economic Work Conference and the Two Sessions, and further promote the work of characteristic industrial clusters for small and medium-sized enterprises. The first is to guide clusters to expand and strengthen leading industries, further enhance the core competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises, stimulate economic vitality in counties, and improve the resilience of industrial chains and supply chains and the supporting capabilities of key links. The second is to do a good job in the guidance and evaluation of cluster development, carry out the publicity of excellent cluster cases and the promotion of typical experience, strengthen the quality management of identified clusters, and ensure that cluster development achieves real results. The third is to organize research and introduce policies and measures to promote the development of clusters, further strengthen policy guidance and resource coordination, build a gradient cultivation system for clusters, and guide and support local governments to cultivate a number of provincial clusters. Thanks.
