(CRI-report) -According to levels, China's development zones can be divided into state-level development zones, provincial development zones, county-level development zones, etc. In line with positioning and functions, they can be classified as economic and technological development zones, new and high-tech industrial development zones, export processing zones, bonded zones, border economic co-operative zones, etc.
Since the implementation of opening up policies and establishment of special economic zones at the end of 1970s, the development zone is regarded as the showcase of China's opening up, primary region for attracting foreign investment and development engine of regional economy. After the development and construction for more than 20 years, development zones become modern industrial cluster parks with the rapidest economic development in China, the most foreign investment attraction, the best investment environment and the highest technological level. Development zones are important components of China's economy.
During 1984 and 1988, China's State Council approved 14 state-level economic and technological development zones including Dalian. Later, China's opening up gradually develops from the coastal areas to regions along the Yangtze River, borders and inland cities. By Nov. 2012, there are 132 state-level economic and technological development zones in China, with 67 in eastern coastal areas, 38 in central areas, 27 in western areas and 15 in border economic co-operative zones. A hundred and five national new and high-tech zones are approved by the State Council. In addition, there are thousands of development zones in other types in China.
During the development of over 30 years, development zones crucially function in the development of China's economy and they play a vital role in the integration of China's economy with the world system. However, development zones also face problems such as severe homogenization and low technological contents in development.
In terms of the development prospect of China's development zones, it will be an inevitable choice for most development zones transforming from ones with a single economic function to multi-functional comprehensive development zones. The phenomenon is because of the following reasons: firstly, development zones gradually form and develop in a relatively small space scope. The transformation of development zones with a single economic function to multi-functional comprehensive ones will be conducive to reducing the number of development zones and promoting the change of China's development zones from the increase in numbers to the improvement in qualities; secondly, the transformation of development zones with a single economic function to multi-functional comprehensive ones will be beneficial for the concentration of financial resources, material resources and human resources to establish development zones and the perfection of infrastructure construction in development zonpes; thirdly, it will be favorable to the development, supporting and coordination of self industries in development zones and promote the development of cross-industry and various industries of enterprises in development zones.
On the whole, with the development of China's economy, development zones continuously play an important role in addressing employment problem, increasing urbanization level, etc. As for enterprises, preferential policies in taxation and other aspects can be generally enjoyed if they settle in development zones.
