I. Project Background
1. Location advantage: as core group city of Wuhan “8+1” city circle, with establishment of interurban railway and highway, Yingcheng will integrate with Wuhan and become an important strategy pivot occupying central and western regional market in processing and manufacturing industry.
2. Transportation advantage: with commissioning of Wuhan-Jingmen section of Hangzhou-Lanzhou Expressway, Yingcheng is only 53km from Wuhan central city and it takes 30 minutes to reach Wuhan city center and 40 minutes to reach Tianhe Airport. Changjing Railway crosses the whole area and there is one passenger station and one freight station. Wuhan-Chongqing Railway, provincial Hankou-Yichang Highway, Wuhan-Xiangfan Expressway and Shanghai-Chengdu Expressway cross the area. Inland water transportation is connected with Han River and Yangtze River and megaton water transport terminal is built in the city center.
3. Cost advantage: water and electricity in Yingcheng is in abundant supply. Daily power supply capacity in the city center is no less than 220MW and electricity price in the valley period of great industry is only 0.252yuan. Water supply capacity can completely satisfy demand of urban industrial production and people’s life. Current price standard of industrial water is 2.3yuan/m3. Current price standard of industrial natural gas is 3.05yuan/m3. If annual demand is enormous, the price can be reduced to 3yuan. Labor is abundant and labor cost is low: common worker 1000-1500yuan/month, skilled labor 1200-2000yuan/month.
4. Infrastructure advantage: Taiwan Businessman Industrial Park under planning and construction has completed infrastructure construction such as land leveling, main road, water supply and drainage, power supply, sewage treatment and Wuhan-Jingmen Expressway linking the park with the outside and Yingcheng connection line have been built and open to traffic.
II. Market Analysis
With the continuous deepening of commercial intercourse between Taiwan and the mainland, Taiwan-funded enterprises rapidly extend and transfer to the inland, expect continuously investing electronic and electric appliance manufacturing industry, basic metal and its products, plastic products, chemical manufacturing and foods and drinks, Taiwan businessmen also enlarge the investment on entertainment, business, real estate, financial services and other tertiary industries and start setting foot in infrastructure construction, energy development and other aspects. With the opening-up of mainland economy, they gradually expand to the Yangtze River delta with the center of Pudong, Beijing, Tianjin and other big cities. From the perspective of investment subject, business mode of Taiwan manufacturers is turned into collective cooperation from previous single operation and turned into mutual participation from simple consigned processing, with the combination and support of related industries of upper, middle and lower reaches. The investment strategy is more active, which transforms into “taking root” strategy from original “running and driving” strategy.
III. Project Scale and Content
In the planned development zone, there is a land with area of 1,000Mu at the east of Longitudinal Road I and between Horizontal Road III and Horizontal Road V left for constructing Taiwan Businessman Industrial Park and integrally undertaking the transfer of Taiwan-funded enterprises and related supporting enterprises from “the Yangtze River Delta”, “the Pearl River Delta” and other areas.
IV. Investment Estimation
Predicted total investment of the project is 1 billion yuan.
V. Cooperation Mode
1. Enterprise self-building: the enterprise acquires land and builds in the Park according to its actual demand. Through cluster development, an industrial park with complete industry chain will be formed.
2. Leasing management: we will establish ancillary facility such as plants according to enterprise’s requirements and then leases them to the enterprise.
3. Buying out by stages: we will establish ancillary facility such as plants according to enterprise’s requirements and offers them to the enterprise. Then the enterprise will buy out the asset ownership year by year.
4. Cooperation construction: we will establish ancillary facility such as plants according to enterprise’s requirements and offers them to the enterprise. Then it is converted to the dividend of the shares as per a certain proportion.
VI. Project Progress
The project is under planning.
