As one of the earliest local models to explore the development path of the market economy, the Jinjiang model was once a model for the development of many county cities. As early as the 1990s, experts from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and other experts summed up the 33-character "Jinjiang model": "mainly market-oriented, export-oriented economy, shareholding cooperation, and multiple economic components development.”
Of course, the concept of the Jinjiang model has been iteratively updated. From relaying on the long-established manufacturing and the real economy, to "quality establishes the market", "brands establish the market", and then to the current physical industry transformation and upgrading, it has different characteristics in different periods with the development of Jinjiang economy. Deep diving into industry, Toushi Think Tank has a deep understanding of the evolution of the connotation and extension of the Jinjiang model. In the past nine years, the research on the innovation ecology, talent identification and industry cognition has enabled the Toushi Think Tank to observe Jinjiang with a new perspective, and to use the benchmarking to coordinate with Jinjiang development.
Here, Toushi Think Tank integrates the most professional "smart" resources, comprehensively promotes Jinjiang's innovation breakthrough in all aspects, all systems and all fields, and allows the advantages of traditional physical industries to be quickly grafted to high-tech innovation resources, and the success of the " Project Navigation " Operations lay a solid foundation for industrial upgrading. What is exciting is that the “Jinjiang Experience” has not only continued to innovate and develop, but also has become a powerful intellectual resource. And, while it is highly respected, can it be replicated for more places? This is an intriguing question.
The Jinjiang model has changed, and Toushi Think Tank has been the first to break the "talent problem"
For the successful password of Jinjiang people, the sociologist Fei Xiaotong has ingeniously summarized: it is the rich desire to enrich the traditions of the vast number of Jinjiang overseas Chinese and the desire to change the status quo of poverty. In the view of the Toushi Think Tank, this is the most vivid, active and essential thing in the Jinjiang economy, and it is also the prerequisite for its industrial transformation goals.
Along the way, Jinjiang has expanded from the initial single economic development to industrial, urban, ecological and cultural aspects. The official is convinced that the upgrading of the industrial transformation file requires the talents to be listed as the first option for the new round of development of the most urgent tasks. Therefore, the birth of the "pilot plan" will be logical.
As the operator of the Project, Toushi Think Tank positioned it as a genetic engineering for the transformation of China's physical cities. Among them, classes of “Project Navigation” aimed at improving the quality of entrepreneurs, aiming to build a Jinjiang entrepreneurial team with global strategic vision, market pioneering spirit, and management innovation capabilities, social responsibility, driving Jinjiang enterprises to better transform and upgrade and move toward the international arena.
Since its inception in 2016, the Project has trained a group of entrepreneurial entrepreneurs in Jinjiang, which can influence the new generation of Jinjiang's future innovation and development ecology. 2018, In the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up, a number of mainstream media such as CCTV, China National Radio, China Reform Daily, China News Service, and Workers’ Daily reported competing reports.
The concern of the outside world is an indisputable fact, and the “introduction of talents” from the local to the periphery is also full of reasons: the manufacturing base that seamlessly interfaces with the new materials industry, the convenient national testing institutions and the first-class business services. Among these, the position of the Toushi Think Tank of "connecting global intellectual resources" can be seen as a pivotal position.
The path of industrial upgrading can be followed, and the need to consider differences in replication
The transformation experience of Jinjiang has great reference significance for the eastern and even the central and western regions of China. Through extensive research, the Toushi Think Tank looks at the trend of reform and development at home and abroad, explores the unique geographical and cultural environment in southern Anhui, and grasps the multi-party relationship between government, market and enterprise. The “existing resource endowment, extension and utilization of knowledge” is worthy of promotion.
“Jinjiang is the first benchmark for the industrial transformation of the city of the Toushi Think Tank. It provides invaluable research and reference value.” Xu Kaixiang, CEO of the Toushi Think Tank, believes that the experience of Jinjiang cannot be copied 100%, but it shows the development of industry and city. The "service" model is capable of transforming and promoting the development of many cities. "I am more optimistic about this."
In fact, Jinjiang has a complete traditional industry chain and cluster advantages, which is the main pillar of its industrial economic growth, but also separated from other cities. However, tapping on sustainable emerging industries needs to rely on traditional industries, such as equipment manufacturing and other emerging industries, mainly due to the scale advantage of the downstream traditional (advantage) industry.
According to official data, in the first quarter of 2018, 27 of the 31 industrial categories in Jinjiang achieved positive growth in output value, with a growth rate of 87%; five major industries (textiles, footwear, paper products, food and beverage, building materials and ceramics), and the output value of the five emerging industries (new materials, smart equipment and machinery manufacturing, marine biology, photovoltaic electronics, automobile manufacturing and parts) has achieved double-digit growth.
Starting from the “CNC generation”, industrial ecosystem and financial ecology, we will promote the “full process optimization, full chain coordination and full factor integration” of traditional production capacity, and create the advantages of Jinjiang’s move and industry leading competitiveness. All of these provide the direction for the transformation and upgrading of China's industrial structure in the next stage, and the path selection still needs to be based on the actual situation of the city.
Trend: Urban industry and urban think tanks grow together
The construction and management of modern cities cannot be separated from the support of think tanks. The Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the CPC proposed that the market should play a decisive role in resource allocation and better play the role of the government. The diversification of urban construction subjects is an inevitable trend, and the demand for think tanks is also diversified.
In the past, China’s urban construction was dominated by the government, and it was the elite decision-making route. “The radish is not washed up.” Top-down urban construction and management decision-making models are difficult to break down. For Jinjiang, it reflects the era, regularity and typicality of the development of county samples, and the introduction of the city's think tanks is a manifestation of its development ambition of “planning and then moving”.
Obviously, after deep cooperation with the Jinjiang Government, the Toushi Think Tank also breeds the nutrients for growth: the pain points and demands of the industry with the core of the industry as the core of the Toushi Think Tank, and the development of perfect products and services. Such an organization with strong service operation planning capabilities is of great value to cities, industries and even entrepreneurs.
The construction management of the city requires the support of the think tank. The Toushi Think Tank should respond to the industrial transformation and upgrading, and there is no shortage of resources and wisdom. The good news is that in the context of "urban construction requires technology and urban management requires skills", the addition of the Toushi Think Tank has made Jinjiang's pace of "building an international and innovative quality city" further.
Of course, this will bring greater development opportunities to the Toushi Think Tank, but it also means more fierce competition and higher quality requirements – the industry is the same, and the city is no different. With the arrival of new projects such as the "Project Voyage", "Project Voyage II" and "Industrial Innovation Collaborative Platform", the Toushi Think Tank will generate more energy and grow with the city.
