Listed as one of the second batch model bases by the national government, Xuhui has formulated an implementation plan to develop a technological service industry. According to Fang, the district will build up a landscape integrated into the information technology industry in Caohejing, the health industry in Fenglin, the Huangpu River waterfront as well as a belt stretching from Caohejing to Huajing.

Fang said that, to push forward technological innovation, the district seeks breakthroughs in six areas including government management, financing channel, cooperative innovation, taxing mechanism, talent development and intellectual property.

Xuhui district will initiate a plan called Guangqi, named after Xu Guangqi, a scientist and politician from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) who contributed to the scientific development of Shanghai.
