SHANGHAI, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Over 3,000 enterprises above designated size in the Yangtze River Delta integration demonstration zone have resumed operation, local authorities said Thursday.
Zhang Zhongwei, vice chairman of the executive committee of the demonstration zone, said at a press conference that 3,099 enterprises above designated size in the dynamic demonstration zone had resumed operation by Feb. 26, accounting for 96.1 percent of large-scale industrial enterprises in the region.
The demonstration zone, located at the junction between Shanghai and the eastern provinces of Zhejiang and Jiangsu, is a new pilot area of China to strengthen its reform and opening-up.
Zhang said enterprises in the Yangtze River Delta region often span the upstream and downstream complex industrial chains and cross industries and borders.
A joint prevention and control mechanism has been established in the demonstration zone since the outbreak of COVID-19, to exchange information, manage transportation, social security and deal with other issues to support the battle against the epidemic.
