The 8th congress of the Luohu District Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) was convened on Oct 19.

On behalf of the CPC Luohu District Committee, Luohu Party Chief Liu Sheng delivered a report on the district's high-quality development during the meeting.

Fan Defan, deputy secretary of the CPC Luohu District Committee and acting district mayor of the Luohu District People's Government, presided over the meeting.

In addition to summarizing the district's development over the past few years, the meeting provided an opportunity to identify goals and key tasks over the next five years for Luohu, solidifying the district's role as a pilot zone for Shenzhen's development.

The report Liu delivered indicated that the district has fulfilled all of the major objectives set during the previous Party Congress.

Specifically, all of the 26 low-income villages in Xilin and Longlin counties of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, as well as Lufeng city of Guangdong province have been lifted out of poverty thanks to Luohu's aid.

The Luohu pilot zone of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Port Economic Belt was included in the key work of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Luohu was the first to introduce policies that support Hong Kong and Macao residents looking for jobs and entrepreneurs starting their own businesses in the region. Likewise, the emerging Dawutong industrial belt has become an important node along the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Macao science and technology corridor.

Luohu has also promoted urban renovation across Hubei, Caiwuwei, Shuibei-Buxin and Sungang-Qingshuihe, making the regions more modernized.

In 2020, the district's gross domestic product reached 237.5 billion yuan ($37.17 billion), with the tertiary industry accounting for 93.8% of its GDP, ranking first among all districts in the city. Luohu's GDP output per square kilometer exceeded 3 billion yuan, 2.2 times that of the whole city. The comprehensive energy consumption per 10,000 yuan of GDP stood at the lowest level in the city, and the average per capita GDP exceeded $30,000, making it one of the highest-income areas.

Meanwhile, Luohu built the first 5G industrial park in the city and its number of national new and high-tech enterprises increased by 135%.

Luohu has prioritized improving its business environment, ecological conservation, government efficiency and public services, such as health care, housing and education.

Between now and 2025, Luohu will continue to foster innovation as its growth driver, enhance its sustainabledevelopment, further modernize the grassroots governance systems, cultivate more civilized communities, and improve residents' livelihoods, according to the meeting.

In addition, Luohu's GDP is expected to exceed 330 billion yuan by 2025, when the added value of strategic emerging industries will account for more than 10% of its GDP, and the per capita disposable income will grow at an average annual rate of 6%, laying a solid foundation for the district's continuous high-quality growth.
