BEIJING, August 28 (Xinhua)—China's northwestern province of Gansu is planning to establish 10 commodity bases for export within the five years to come.

A provincial official said the province aims to shift from exporting rough-processed, low added-value products to exporting deep-processed, high added-value products.

Gansu has formed a batch of pillar industries like non-ferrous metal metallurgy, petrochemicals, energy, power, building materials and light textile. Its production and output value of non-ferrous metals ranks second in China.
