Serving Xiong'an New Area
In April 2017, the central government announced the plan to set up Xiong'an New Area in Hebei Province, another new area with national significance after Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and Shanghai Pudong New Area.
The establishment of this new area is significant for the transfer of Beijing's non-capital functions, the exploration of new modes for the optimization and development of population-intensive economic zones, the adjustment and improvement of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei urban layout and spatial structure, and the nurturing of new engines for innovation-driven development.
Under the background of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration, Tianjin actively supports and serves the construction of Xiong'an New Area. One of main drinking water resources in Tianjin - Yuqiao Reservoir Tianjin cooperates with Xiong'an New Area on high-end industries, such as the new generation information technology, new energy, new materials, energy conservation and environmental protection, bio-medicine and health care, to realize coordinated development of industries and technologies.
Tianjin takes advantage of its role as a port city and opening-up platform to the outside world and plans to settle dry ports in Xiong'an New Area and improve the service of ports in Hebei and Tianjin.
Tianjin helps Xiong'an New Area make its plan for transportation, ecological network and offer support on technology and talents. Tianjin also assists Xiong'an New Area to cultivate technical personnel on environmental protection and jointly carry out research on ecological restoration technology and improve the water quality of Baiyangdian Lake and Haihe River system.These gratifying results are attributable to three key points: the ports being intelligent, eco-friendly, and geo-advantageous.
