The International Youth Forum on Private Economy Innovation was held in Dongyang, a county-level city in Jinhua, on Sept 4. The forum aims to bolster the development of the private economy by making full use of overseas resources, analyzing the current situation and future potential of private companies in Jinhua, and soliciting advice on how to develop the city's private sector.
Jinhua: an important birthplace of the private economy in Zhejiang
Private economy contributes more than 65 percent of investment, over 70 percent of regional GDP, and more than 80 percent of tax revenue and employment in Jinhua.
It has become a major force behind the city's high-quality development and economic upgrading and is an effective way to increase employment and income in the city.
Zhang Xinyu, vice-mayor of Jinhua, said at a speech during the forum that, Jinhua, located in central Zhejiang, boasts a long history and rich culture and has given rise to many influential figures. It is known as "a city of 1,000 learned scholars and 10,000 professors."
The city has developed a strong private economy and solid industrial foundation. Yiwu, for example, houses the largest small commodity wholesale market in the world, while Dongyang is home to the largest live-action filming base in the world.
