Policy trend of pesticide production in China 10-09-2022

Summary: MARA pointed out five directions for China's chemical industrial parks to facilitate the leap from standardised development to high-quality development in 2021–2025.

On 29 Jan., 2022, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of the People's Republic of China (MARA) and other departments officially published the 14th Five-year Plan for Pesticide Industry Development (hereinafter referred to as the Plan). According to the Plan, efforts should be made in five directions to build up the comprehensive strength and sustainability of China's chemical industrial parks with a goal of facilitating the leap from standardised development to high-quality development in 2021–2025.


I. Promote the development of industrial clusters, and optimise & upgrade industrial structure in chemical parks

  • Coastal area: Give full play to the geographical advantage, and develop a number of high-quality coastal petrochemical bases, especially large petrochemical parks with international influence in Daya Bay (Guangdong), Shanghai and Ningbo (Zhejiang).
  • Inland area: Rely on resources advantage to develop a number of inland petrochemical bases, especially demonstration parks with prominent characteristics or going through industrial transformation and upgrade in Nanjing (Jiangsu), Shijiazhuang (Hebei) and Wuhai (western Inner Mongolia).
  • Western region: Focus on the construction of four large-scale modern coal chemical industry bases in Ningdong (Ningxia), Yulin (Shaanxi), Ordos (western Inner Mongolia) and Zhundong (Xinjiang), strengthen the comprehensive utilisation of coal and foster demonstration zones of advanced coal chemical industry.

    II. Strengthen the guiding role of planning and norms and implement access management system

    The goal of industrial transformation and upgrading in chemical industrial parks is to rationally plan specialised industries, extend the industrial chain, encourage differentiated development, as well as build synergy, and apply energy supply and resources recycling between upstream and downstream companies in a park.


    Introduce access management system and withdrawal mechanism, and encourage upgrade and transformation in enterprises in parks. Projects allowed to enter the parks should conform to requirements of the national industrial policies and the industrial plans of individual chemical park. Furthermore, hierarchical management of chemical parks in key provinces should be put in place.


    III. Enhance risk prevention and control capability

    Quantitative risk assessment and environmental impact assessment for chemical parks should be carried out. Three-tiered risk control system for production devices, enterprises and parks should be established and overall emergency plans be formulated, so as to reduce the possibility of major pollution accidents. The following establishments are essential, namely, professional institutions for safe production and environmental protection, safety supervision records of enterprises in park, as well as tiered risk control and hidden trouble investigation and management work arrangement. At the same time, a communication mechanism should be worked out with surrounding towns and communities, including release the information of industrial development prospect and environmental protection results to the public and accept supervisions from government agencies, the public and peer enterprises.


    IV. Cultivate specialised and efficient management and services

    Chemical industrial parks should improve on the mode of "government supervision + corporate-like services", to transform themselves from government-led parks to government-guided and market-led ones. Equip them with big data technology to push forward evolution. Speed up data connection between information systems in parks and public database, in order to gradually realise intelligent early warning on and analysis of production safety, environmental protection, emergency, energy consumption, logistics, and other public services.


    V. Set demonstration projects to encourage overall high-quality improvement 

    Push forward the set-up of a standardisation system. By 2025, a number of high-quality demonstration projects will be fostered, which have excellent management, good industrial coordination and strong innovation capacity, supported by large-scale, high-efficiency and high-level key projects, as well as by advanced producer service sector. And regard enhancing innovation ability as an important indicator and direction in improving the quality of chemical parks; by 2025, there will be at least 50 science and technology innovation centers in the parks.
