China to create new city Xiongan New Area; to be nearly three times the size of New York

New Delhi/Beijing: China has announced that it would establish the Xiongan New Area in Hebei Province, similar to those established in Shenzhen and Shanghai.
Xiongan New Area “will eventually cover an area nearly three times that of New York,” the Guardian quoting official sources said.

This is another new area with national significance after the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and the Shanghai Pudong New Area, according to a circular issued by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council.

The move is a "major historic and strategic choice made by the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core," said the circular.

The move will help phase out non-capital functions from Beijing, explore a new model of optimized development in densely-populated areas, and restructure the urban layout in the region, according to the circular.

The New Area will cover around 100 square km initially and will be expanded to 200 square km in mid-term and about 2,000 square km in the long-term.Bulk whatsapp sms service provider
