All over the sky red leaves burn all over the mountains, Fenhe a blue wave in the bright light more and more gorgeous. At the end of autumn and the beginning of winter, a landscape picture of the north, which is better than the south of the Yangtze River, rendered in Taiyuan, dressed up the "circle of friends" of citizens and tourists, lit up the self-confidence of an ancient city, and wrote a new chapter in the transformation and rise of this resource-based city.
The "Beauty" of the Environment leads to the effect of "City living Room"
Taiyuan, in the arms of the two mountain systems of Taihang and Luliang, has been known as "mountains glowing and verdant and Chuanrong picturesque" since ancient times. However, for a long time at the expense of the environment, the development here once lost the color of mountains and rivers, the east and west mountains are riddled with holes, vegetation is scarce, the Fenhe River that passes through the city is overgrown with weeds and rubbish, the smell of soot cannot be scattered in the air, and the appearance of the city is obsolete.
The change began with the "Mother River" Fenhe River. "since 1998, Taiyuan has continuously managed the Fenhe River for 21 years and built a 33-kilometer landscape belt. The chaotic beaches of the past have become amusement parks for the citizens. " Hou Gang, director of the office of the Fenhe Scenic spot Management Committee, said.
Fenhe has become beautiful, has become an ancient city in the new period of the "living room", ushered in the butterfly change "acceleration". In the past, in the Xishan area, where "the wind rose all over the sky and the sky was gray and the rain fell full of mud", Taiyuan invested more than 10 billion yuan in a few years to build 16 suburban forest parks with green slopes and different landscapes. The nine tributaries and Jinyang Lake, which have been polluted for many years, have also been transformed one by one in recent years, coruscating the look of "Shuiyun Dragon City".
In order to control the long-standing soot pollution, Taiyuan, combined with the transformation of villages in the city and the replacement of coal-fired boilers in heat source plants, dismantles about 500 coal-fired boilers a year. "in the past few years, the city's air quality comprehensive pollution index has declined year after year, especially the sulfur dioxide concentration has dropped by 70%." Song Li, director of the regional department of the Taiyuan Municipal Bureau of Ecological Environment, said.
Traffic is also "green". In just a few years, Taiyuan has newly rebuilt more than 1000 kilometers of urban roads, and all buses have been replaced by natural gas buses, and it has become the first pure electric taxi city in the country, and the number of public bicycles and other indicators ranks first in the country.
"Taiyuan is becoming more and more beautiful and modern." Huang Bin, a native of Shandong who often travels to Taiyuan, says the changes in the city have completely subverted people's inherent impression.
Industries are "more", "old rice bowls" make "new rice"
A biomass circulating fluidized bed boiler technology developed by Taiyuan Boiler Group and Tsinghua University has been identified by the expert group and is considered to have "achieved significant technological innovation" and "reached the international leading level in this field".
"the sales of this technical product have reached 500 million yuan this year, accounting for 1. 4% of the total sales of the group, which has contributed a new growth point to the enterprise." Liu Aicheng, deputy chief engineer of Taiyuan Boiler Group, said that since he was on the verge of bankruptcy 20 years ago to become an industry leader, enterprises have been reborn in adversity because of scientific and technological innovation.
As an important national industrial base, energy and heavy chemical industry base, Taiyuan has formed a single industrial structure such as "one steel is dominant" for a long time. In order to promote industrial transformation and upgrading, Taiyuan proposed to correctly deal with the relationship between "old rice bowls" and "new rice bowls", and implement the strategy of strengthening the city by industry. "it is necessary to make 'new rice' from 'old rice bowls' and create more 'new rice bowls' through technological transformation and innovation." Zhang Nongshou, director of the political Research Office of the Taiyuan Municipal CPC Committee, said.
Combined with the construction of a comprehensive reform experimental area for the transformation of a resource-based economy and an innovation demonstration zone for the national sustainable development agenda, Taiyuan has successively issued a series of industrial transformation policies and set up an industrial development fund of 10 billion yuan. For the second year in a row, 2 billion yuan has been allocated to support scientific and technological innovation and talent construction.
"these measures have stimulated the innovative and entrepreneurial vitality of the whole society, and the new forces of economic development are growing." Pang Hong, director of the Taiyuan Science and Technology Bureau, said that since 2017, the number of high-tech enterprises in the city has increased by 54.3%, and the number of technology-based small and medium-sized enterprises has increased eightfold, ranking first in the central provincial capital city.
The innovation drive presses the "fast forward key" for the transformation and upgrading of the industry. In 2018, the added value of non-traditional industries in Taiyuan increased by 17.8%, nearly 10 percentage points higher than that of traditional industries, and investment in transformation projects increased by 23.7%, accounting for 63.4% of fixed assets investment. High-end equipment manufacturing, new materials, information technology, modern service industries and other emerging industries are developing rapidly.
Dai Lushou, deputy director of the Taiyuan Municipal Bureau of Statistics, said: "the pace of industrial transformation and upgrading of the city is speeding up, the pattern of multiple support is gradually taking shape, and the momentum of economic development is ready to develop."
Stand on tiptoe to pick peaches and step into the "fast lane" of reform and development
From 26 working days, 5 working days, and then 2 working days, this is the change of the time limit for new enterprises in Taiyuan. Behind the change is the drastic promotion of administrative examination and approval service reform.
"since the establishment of the specialized agency, we have been in a state of full running." Zhen Yongchun, head of the Administrative examination and approval Management Section of the Taiyuan Administrative examination and approval Service Administration, said that by the end of this year, it is necessary to achieve "one window access." Let real estate registration, enterprise registration, social affairs, investment projects and other matters of examination and approval services to truly facilitate the people.
In recent years, Taiyuan has promoted 52 categories and 305 reform tasks in all aspects and in many fields, and has undertaken and implemented 34 pilot reform items at the national and provincial levels, all of which have made great progress.
"in the past, when our farmers had the habit of carrying the disease, they could not bear it before they went to the big hospitals in the county towns and cities. You can enjoy good service on your doorstep now. " Dong Haixian, president of the East Huangshui Town Health Center in Yangqu County, said.
The medical "good service" enjoyed by villagers has benefited from the integrated reform of medical and health institutions in Taiyuan City, that is, the county and township medical institutions have been integrated into a medical group to co-ordinate resources and improve the efficiency of diagnosis and treatment. Villagers in Yangqu County can take X-rays in township health centers, do electrocardiograms in village clinics, and "see" county hospital experts through remote consultation.
"Taiyuan's transformation has benefited from reform, which releases productive forces and stimulates vitality." Wang Yaowu, director of the Development Research Center of the Taiyuan Municipal Government, said that the whole city has put pressure on itself and "tiptoe" to pick peaches, and the reformed color pen is drawing a new picture of Taiyuan's high-quality development.
