Industrial companies - including Volkswagen - with an annual income of more than 20 million yuan ($3.26 million) saw an income increase of 10.1 percent and tax revenue from the district's tertiary industry increased by 39.9 percent, compared with an increase of 1.1 percent in the real estate industry.

Ma Chunlei, member of the city's CPC committee and Jiading's deputy secretary and district head, said at the 4th plenary meeting of the 10th Shanghai Municipal CPC Committee that he hopes for more guidance and support for Shanghai's suburban areas.

The meeting was held at Shanghai's World Expo Center on July 12 and 13, and Ma called for support especially for Jiading's high-end manufacturing based on the auto industry and emerging high-tech industries. He said that the district should also promote service industries, such as electronic commerce and advertising.

Ma also said the suburbs should establish independent, systematic and complete urban functions in the process of urbanization, and emphasized that Jiading should focus on policy innovation and law support in order to efficiently resolve problems in the social managing process.
