According to the work report, Taizhou intends to step up its efforts to boost the high-quality development of the health-related sector.

What's more, it will develop four major industrial clusters – for high-end equipment, high-tech shipbuilding, chemicals and the new materials industry, an automobiles and parts cluster and a solar power and a new energy cluster.

To promote its rural revitalization, Taizhou plans to create five traditional villages, 10 characteristic pastoral villages and 60 eco-friendly and beautiful villages at the provincial level.
