The government should establish a new Shantou special economic zone to include two more cities in Guangdong in order to attract investment and create an additional growth point for regional development, according to a proposal submitted to the 12th Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

"At present, the administrative division of these three cities, namely Shantou, Chaozhou and Jieyang, has restricted the local economic development," said Chan King-wai, a member of the National Committee of the CPPCC, the country's top political advisory body.

His proposal was supported by more than 100 other members and submitted jointly.
