At a production line of new materials in Changyi, a county-level city in Weifang, Shandong province, workers are busy fulfilling orders in an organized and efficient manner.
"The regular on-site coordination and timely communication with local government departments have significantly facilitated our operations, effectively boosting project progress and securing time for completion," said Liu Wenpeng, head of the engineering department at Weifang-based Yaxing Chemical.

To further enhance project management services throughout full lifecycle, Changyi has also initiated 16 rounds of bank-enterprise matchmaking activities, benefiting over 700 companies. About 40 billion yuan in loans have been provided to key projects such as the construction of a digital agricultural demonstration park, injecting financial vitality into the city's development.
From January to October, the total industrial output value by above designated size entities in Changyi reached 68.53 billion yuan, an increase of 7.4 percent year-on-year. The operating income of industries above designated size stood at 63.61 billion yuan, up 11.4 percent year-on-year.
