Songjiang performed well in industrial restructuring last year, according to a review by the municipal government.

The district phased out 1,033 companies with obsolete production methods, a 129.6 percent increase from 2015. It also reduced land supply for construction works by 495.6 hectares and enlarged green coverage by 295.5 hectares.

Energy consumption was slashed by an equivalent of 39,200 tons of coal, mainly in metal processing, machinery and textile industries.
