The characteristic town of service industry is an important carrier to accelerate the development of new drivers and the transformation and upgrading of service industry. According to Shandong Development and Reform Commission, the list of the third batch of 32 provincial-level characteristic towns of service industry has been released.

The provincial work report placed the construction of provincial-level characteristic towns of service industry as one of the key tasks for the province in 2019. Including the newly-approved 32 towns, Shandong has verified 81 characteristic towns of service industry in total,” said Li Peiqing, researcher of the Service Industrial Planning and Coordination Office of Shandong Development and Reform Commission.

Modern financial town is a newly-added area not covered by the previous two batches.

The development of characteristic towns of service industry is situated the front row but there is still some gap compared with Zhejiang and Jiangsu. “The characteristic towns in Shandong are still small in scale, low in level, and few in kind, and still have a gap in the development quality and standard with that of Zhejiang and Jiangsu,” Li Peiqing added.

Li Peiqing said that the construction of the towns should be precisely positioned. The positioning category should be in line with the modern industrial transformation and upgrading. In addition to planning and positioning based on local conditions, it is necessary to strengthen the market competitive advantages in characteristic industries for developing characteristic towns and forge two kinds of competitive advantages of “target agglomeration and differentiation” from the aspects of industrial cultivation, enterprise investment and cultivation.

The development of characteristic towns cannot rely only on the promotion of government funds or industrial funds in the early stage. If there is no characteristic industry in line with the industrial development law as the foundation, the town can only be a flash in the pan and the development of characteristic service industry would be only an armchair strategy, added Li Peiqing.

Shandong will step up efforts to cultivate more characteristic towns. The province plans to identify the fourth batch of characteristic towns of service industry by 2021.
