‘Integrated’ Yangtze River Delta delivers results

THE Yangtze River Delta region has enjoyed fruitful achievements in a wide range of areas since the region’s integration was approved three years ago, officials said yesterday.

The economic aggregate of the Yangtze River Delta region accounted for 24.5 percent of China’s total in the first half of this year, up from 24.1 percent in the entire 2018.

“An increasingly convenient traffic network has been established in the region,” said Hua Yuan, deputy secretary-general of the Shanghai government.

The first phase of the Shanghai-Suzhou-Nantong high-speed railway is already open and construction on the Shanghai-Suzhou-Huzhou high-speed railway was proceeding smoothly.

High-speed railways in the region have been extended to more than 6,000 kilometers.

Seven out of nine dead-end inter-provincial roads in the delta, involving Shanghai, have been connected.

Several projects in the field of energy such as the Rudong-Chongming natural gas pipeline, and Huainan-Nanjing-Shanghai 1,000kv extra-high voltage cross-river alternating current transmission project are already in operation.

More than 220,000 5G base stations have been established, accounting for 26.9 percent of the country’s total.

There have been over 1,000 innovation applications on the Internet of Vehicles, intelligent manufacturing and smart city areas in the delta region.

“Efforts have been stepped up toward the goal of a ‘green and beautiful’ delta region,” said Hua.

Coordinated work to curb air and water pollution has taken place, and two regional ecological and environmental standards have been released.

Joint crackdown campaigns have been conducted against illegal fishing, and Wusong River and Dianshan Lake environment improvement projects, along with the Taipu River dredge project, have been carried out.

In total, 5.93 million people enjoyed inter-provincial settlements through digital medical insurance services by the end of September. The medical treatment fees totaled 1.55 billion yuan (US$242.8 million).
