Hunan’s automobile industry is in full swing. A batch of GAC MITSUBISHI, GAC FAC, and SAIC VOLKSWAGEN new car models were produced. The CETDZ’s automobile industry achieved an output value of 73.16 billion yuan between January and September, increasing by 50% over the same period last year. The annual target is 100 billion yuan, and the production capacity is expected to exceed one million cars.

Statistics showed that Hunan’s equipment and consumer goods sectors grew rapidly, giving a strong impetus to the province’s economic development.

The manufacturing sector witnessed a recovery of investment attraction, which has risen for seven consecutive months. Hunan’s industrial economy utilized more than US$5.67 billion of overseas investment, increasing by 15.4% year on year.
