Over the course of the past decade, Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, has increased its investments substantially in such areas as modern industry, people's livelihoods and the construction of infrastructure.

As a result, the city's fixed investment has achieved leapfrog development, providing solid support for its high-quality development.

From 2013 to 2021, Xi'an's fixed asset investment, excluding farmers capital expenditure, increased by 5.1 percent on average annually. The steady growth in investment growth was mainly due to the increase in the number of new projects.

In 2021, there were 3,308 investment projects in the city, an increase of 744 over 2012 and 1.3 times that of 2012.

In accordance with the requirements of the strategic goal of building a city strong in advanced manufacturing, Xi'an has focused on increasing industrial investment.
