Gov Sets up Xiong'an New Area in Hebei Province

"We want a reasonable pace of development, we need to strictly forbid large-scale real estate developments", the agency quoted Zhang Gaoli as telling a conference on efforts to integrate the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The area located at 62 miles south of Beijing.

However, the ongoing hype surrounding the Xiongan New Area project and the investor stampede could turn out to be just another passing fancy. To build a green and intelligent city, to build an environment friendly city, to develop sophisticated industry and cultivate new energy resources, to provide better infrastructure and city service, to develop efficient and clean traffic network, to adjust the managing system and the functions of the government and to open up and develop new platform for worldwide cooperation.

A circular issued by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council described the move as a "major historic and strategic choice" that would be "crucial for the millennium to come".

Zhang said plans for the new area should feature "high standards and high quality", and he stressed innovation, policy support, and environmental protection.

"This would be one of the centrepieces of a high-level development plan for the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region", said Bill Bowler, a sales trader at Forsyth Barr Asia Ltd in Hong Kong.

A number of wholesale markets in the city's central areas have been shut down or relocated, and some of Beijing's city administration will be moved out of the city center to the southeastern suburbs in Tongzhou, which is called Beijing's "subsidiary administrative center".

Regional planning should be systematic, Zhang said, with stronger land, real estate and population controls.

Work should be expedited to build a pilot area to explore innovation and reform, while basic public services must be shared across the region, he said.

Chinese policemen have apprehended seven individuals for property violations that occurred within Hebei's Xiongan New Area, which is set to become the nation's newest special economic zone, revealed Reuters, citing a report published by China Daily on Thursday (6 April).
