Overall affluent Guangdong is expected in 2011
Latest Updated by 2007-05-22 12:04:46

Zhang Dejiang, Party secretary of the Guangdong province, is delivering a work report at the opening ceremony.

Guangdong aims to "build an overall affluent society by 2011, with the Pearl River Delta area as its lead, to realize basic socialist modernization," according to the province's Communist Party Secretary Zhang Dejiang.

Zhang made this remark in his report on the opening of the 10th Guangdong Provincial CPC Congress which opened on Monday.

South China's Guangdong Province, currently the biggest GDP contributor on the Chinese mainland, expects to see its GDP exceeding 4 trillion yuan (519.4 billion U.S. dollars) by 2011, with an annual growth by 9 percent over the next five years. While the province's per capita GDP will hit 40,000 yuan and achieve an annual growth rate of 8 percent by 2011.

Zhang said Guangdong will strive for a 16-percent drop in energy consumption and reduce the discharge of major pollutants by 15 percent over the next five years.

"Guangdong will continue reform and opening up and take the coordinated development between rural and urban areas as priority," said Zhang

Measured by GDP, Guangdong surpassed Hong Kong and Singapore in 2005 when its GDP hit two trillion yuan. Last year the province yielded 2.5968 trillion yuan in GDP, doubling its figure of 2001 and accounting for one-eighth of the country's overall economic growth with a yearly growth rate of 14 percent.
