The Nantong Economic & Technological Development Area, or NETDA – located in Nantong city in East China's Jiangsu province – set out its development goals for the current year at a working meeting on Jan 8.
Under the program, it will sign at least 27 new projects worth over 1 billion yuan ($160 million) each and receive actual foreign investment of more than $600 million in 2022.
This year, the NETDA is expected to make greater efforts to promote the revitalization of leading industries and to build an influential and competitive 100-billion-yuan-level industry cluster in the Yangtze River Delta region.
