Under this background, Shandong province actively plays a pioneering role, scientifically grasps the new stage of development, focuses on promoting the sustainable and healthy development of the province's economy and society, and plans to build a regional development pattern of "one group, two centers and three circles". The purpose is to test the effect of reform and development in Shandong province in recent ten years, and to provide basis for further development planning of Shandong province under the new background. Therefore, GDP is chosen as an important indicator of economic development.
