Since the beginning of this year, the Changsha Area of Hunan Pilot Free Trade Zone (hereinafter referred to as "Changsha Area") has ushered in a "good start" in attracting investment.

Be bold, try boldly, and change yourself! Since its listing in September 2020, the Changsha area has continued to promote institutional innovation, free trade dividends have been continuously released, and the opening to the outside world is accelerating, becoming the "leading goose" of the province's reform and opening up.

"Install a power engine for the province's high-quality development!" On March 17, Zhang Qingwei, Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee and Director of the Standing Committee of the Provincial People's Congress, put forward higher requirements for the construction of the Changsha area during his investigation in Changsha.

The journey is long, only struggle. Changsha will make persistent efforts, pioneer and innovate, deeply implement the strategy of strengthening the provincial capital, make new contributions to serve the national strategy and build a modernized new Hunan, and deliver an excellent answer sheet for the times!

14 institutional innovation achievements are the first in the country

From only handling the entry and exit customs clearance of mail, to building a sorting line compatible with three different business types of “Post Express Crossing” and realizing the same supervision, the average daily processing capacity of Changsha International Mail Exchange Bureau has soared from a maximum of 50,000 to 300,000 The average clearance time is reduced by nearly 50%.

"In the past, because of different types of goods, companies had to go to several places to handle business." Guo Jing, general manager of Hunan Feishi E-Commerce Co., Ltd., deeply felt the convenience brought by the new customs clearance model. Guo Jing introduced that the company sells domestic specialty foods and daily necessities to Japan. Before, it took several days for the goods to arrive. After the intensive customs clearance mode is activated, it can arrive in Japan the next day, saving one-tenth of the operating cost.

With the help of the new model of "Express Crossing", the cross-border e-commerce industry in the Linkong block of Changsha area has accelerated, and the cross-border e-commerce trade volume has increased from 384 million US dollars to 1.8 billion US dollars, becoming the "leading" of the province's cross-border e-commerce exports.

This is the "standardized model for the export of second-hand construction machinery equipment";

Changsha faces the sea and embraces the world. The free trade zone is the bridgehead of Hunan's opening to the outside world, and the expansion of opening up is inseparable from the construction of channels.

On March 16, Hunan Province's first direct cargo route to South America (Changsha - Sao Paulo, Brazil) made its maiden flight. So far, Changsha's international aviation logistics channel has reached four continents (North America, Europe, Asia, South America) . Contrasting with the "addition" of the route, the total value of Changsha's imports and exports is also rising.
