Beijing on Wednesday published a blue paper revealing the development and future prospects of the city's high-tech industries. Among the targets, the output of the next-generation IT industry is expected to reach 350 billion yuan (US$49 billion) next year.

Beijing has been focusing on the development of ten high-tech industries in recent years, including the next-generation IT industry, integrated circuit, artificial intelligence, etc. In 2018, Beijing's national-level high-tech enterprises numbered 25,000, an increase of 25%. On average, 199 start-ups were set up on a daily basis, and the city's technology contract turnover increased by 10.5%.

In the blue paper, Beijing names the target outputs of some key industries next year: 110 billion yuan for the integrated circuit industry; 200 billion yuan for the medical health industry; 190 billion yuan for the smart equipment industry; 100 billion yuan for the new-energy smart automobile industry; and 100 billion yuan for the new materials industry.

A basic principle of zoning industrial clusters is also revealed in the blue paper: A district shall have no more than three leading industries, and a leading industry shall not go beyond three districts.

Based on this principle, each of the city's six core areas will have different focuses for high-tech development.

Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone has gradually formed industrial clusters of integrated circuit design, integrated circuit manufacturing and a new generation of demonstration industry; Shunyi district has developed industrial clusters such as integrated circuit manufacturing, compound semiconductor and 5G industry.

Haidian district is forming clusters of integrated circuit design, integrated circuits manufacturing and a new generation of innovative application industries; Chaoyang district features integrated circuit design, 5G industry, and a new generation of innovative application industries.

Fangshan district has formed clusters of high-end medical equipment research and development, intelligent manufacturing, and vehicle research and development; and Changping district has formed such industrial clusters as new medicine and medical device research and development, energy-saving industries, and environmental protection industries.

The blue paper was jointly released by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Economy and Information Industry and the Beijing Industrial Economic Research Center.
