The State Council Information Office held a news conference on Wednesday. Lan Tianli, chairman of the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, emphasized at the meeting that the region is committed to the primary task of high-quality development in the new era and will focus on promoting the construction of the "One Zone, Two Hubs, One Park, One Corridor" initiative. Lan explained the initiative in detail.

"One Zone" refers to building a demonstration area to strengthen the sense of community of the Chinese nation. Guangxi will continue to strive for ethnic unity and progress, playing a leading and exemplary role.

The first of the "Two Hubs" involves creating a market for domestic and international businesses by leveraging Guangxi's unique geographical location. The second refers to establishing a strategic hinterland for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and integrating into the GBA's innovation, industrial, supply, capital and talent chains.

"One Park" entails establishing industrial parks along the border and near ports, facilitating orderly industrial transfers, and constructing a safe and stable cross-border and cross-regional industrial supply chain.

"One Corridor" involves building a high-level New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor. Guangxi plans to construct the Pinglu Canal to high standards and quality, accelerate the construction of the Huangtong to Baise Railway, establish the Beibu Gulf International Gateway Port, and expedite the construction of a new land-sea passage that offers the shortest connection time to ASEAN.

Guangxi's position and role in the national opening-up strategy are becoming increasingly prominent. It has hosted the China-ASEAN Expo and China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit for 20 consecutive years, and ASEAN has been Guangxi's largest trading partner for 24 years.

According to Lan, Guangxi's economic output grew from 1.13 trillion yuan ($155.8 billion) in 2012 to 2.72 trillion yuan in 2023.
