In the process of the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta, one of the main objectives of the national strategy is to form a modern economic system with independent control. To this end, it is necessary to speed up the process of industrial integration in the Yangtze River Delta, breaking the historical administrative barriers between the two major industrial belts in the Yangtze River Delta and the optimization of the distribution of factor flows and industrial chain space, and promoting the matching and integration of the industrial chain, value chain, innovation chain and the large urban agglomerations in space to form a strong competitive advantage in regional industries.


An important part of the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta is to promote the integration of industrial chains and the integration of industrial layout space. Judging from the current development trend, the South Wing is moving from a traditional labor-intensive industrial cluster to a digital industrial cluster centered on "Internet Plus". In the North Wing, its intrinsic properties are still low-end manufacturing and repetitive production of global value chains, especially in terms of controlling the independent innovation capability of enterprises. Therefore, it is necessary to accelerate the integration of the industrial belt and industrial chain of the north and south wings of the Yangtze River Delta.


The industrial belts of the north and south wings of the Yangtze River Delta are highly complementary. The South Wing has a certain advantage in the matching of industry chain and innovation chain, and in the innovation of business model and market innovation. The North Wing has advantages in the complex manufacturing stage of the industrial chain, industrial scale and engineering innovation, especially in connection with global value chains and industrial chains. How to integrate and develop these two major industrial belts is of great significance to the optimization of the industrial layout of the Yangtze River Delta and the development of industrial integration.


The second step is to accelerate the development of the digital industry, and connect and integrate the north and south wings of the Yangtze River Delta with the development of the digital economy. In recent years, the digital economy of the south wing of the Yangtze River Delta has developed rapidly, from Taobao to Alipay, to big data and cloud computing, and has begun to develop towards artificial intelligence. Shanghai and the North Wing of Yangtze River Delta industrial belts have significant advantages in the digital manufacturing industry. To this end, it is necessary to seize the opportunity of the integration of the Yangtze River Delta development into a national strategy and accelerate the integration of the industrial chain.


Under the influence and promotion of a new wave of scientific and technological revolution, the South Wing of the Yangtze River Delta has formed an internationally competitive digital service industry. The North Wing urban agglomeration of the Yangtze River Delta has scale economies advantages in the complex chain of manufacturing industries, and these cities and regions have an advantageous environment for the development of digital manufacturing. By building a high-quality integrated urban agglomeration in the Yangtze River Delta, the industrial chain covering the entire digital industry can be connected to form a digital industrial system with global value chains, which will lead to the integration of the north and south wings, forming an autonomous controllable modern industrial system.
