Ruili Experimental Zone: Port Advantages Boost Industrial Transformation and Upgrading

    “Pass-through (guoshou) rice noodle” is an unique food to A’chang ethnic minority in Dehong. However, “pass-through rice noodle” has also been a nickname for the foreign trade of Ruili, a golden port city.

  In the past, due to the weak industrial foundation, only 20% of the goods exported through Ruili Port came from Dehong and only 20% of the goods imported through Ruili Port were sold and processed in Ruili. Passageway advantage can not be turned into economic advantage without the support of local industries. Ruili could only play the role of “pass-through” in the past, even if it owns passageway advantage.

  With the development of Ruili Experimental Zone, Ruili has been actively seeking transformation of economic development mode. In order to form the new export advantage characterized by technology, brand, quality and service, and boost the transformation and upgrading of processing trade, Ruili, based on the market needs of Myanmar, southeast and southern Asian countries, is now focusing on the export processing of household electrical appliances, mechano-electronic products, agricultural machineries, etc. and trying to build the export-oriented base as well as manufacturing and processing base of import-export goods.

  From January to June of 2014, import and export freight volume through Ruili Port reached 1.5482 million tons, an increase of 27.9% compared with the same period of the previous year; total import and export value achieved 14.2 billion yuan, an increase of 60.3% compared with the same period of the previous year. The rapid growth was resulted from the industrial transformation and upgrading. “In the past, economic development of Ruili was supported by the third industry. Now the second industry is showing a rapid growth. In addition, industrial structure is also undergoing a fundamental change, which is reflected in the new trade trend: import-export trade in Ruili mainly focused on textile and chemical materials in the past but now mainly on mechanical and electrical products”, said Cai Sihong, Party chief of Ruili Experimental Zone, adding that China-Myanmar border industries, which are characterized by geological advantage, port advantage and manufacturing advantage, are taking shape gradually.

  “Without the favorable policy environment, enterprises like us may have died out during our business transformation”, said Li Yuanyan from Ruili Qisheng LCD TV Technology Co., Ltd. In Ruili, industrial trans-boundary is not unusual now. Different industries are now helping each other and working together to form industrial chains gradually. “Made in Dehong” and “Made in Ruili” have been the major force of the import-export goods of Dehong, and the one-fold passageway economy in the past is now gradually being turned into a diversified port economy integrating foreign trade, logistics, processing, tourism, shopping and so on.
