These include macroeconomic issues, raising the export intensity of manufacturing, reducing the regulatory burden, raising investment for industry, providing public goods for manufacturing, driving counties’ industrial competitiveness, effective and pro-industry taxation structure and fully implementing existing manufacturing-centric policies.
