Zhanjiang will concentrate all efforts into achieving sub-center city status, and thereafter help Guangdong province become a national leader in institutional construction, economic development, opening-up, and social governance.
This plan was underscored by Party secretary Zheng Renhao at the 5th Plenary Session of the 11th Zhanjiang Municipal Committee of the CPC, which was held at the Zhanjiang International Convention Center on June 14.

According to Zheng, Zhanjiang is now faced with unprecedented opportunities and development prospects by being a neighbor to the burgeoning Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the China (Hainan) Pilot Free Trade Zone.
At the national level, Zhanjiang plays a significant role in strategies such as Military-Civilian Integration and Building a Maritime Power. In Guangdong province, Zhanjiang is positioned as a new engine for economic growth as well as a comprehensive transport hub.
All of the aforementioned factors give Zhanjiang a solid foundation on which it can flourish. The city will take full advantage of its strengths to develop coastal tourism, modern agriculture, military-civilian integration, and port-related businesses.
Adhering to the win-win opening-up strategy, Zhanjiang will seek more exchanges and cooperation with the Greater Bay Area and Hainan Island, and play an active role in the Belt & Road Initiative.
To create a favorable business environment, the city will speed up the development of a modernized transportation system and industrial parks. It will also deepen the supply-side structural reform to turn itself into an innovation-driven city.
When it comes to people's livelihood, Zhanjiang will implement the rural rejuvenation strategy, crack down on urban pollution, enforce the law, and push ahead with the spiritual civilization.
