"Dabu should take the opportunity of the 'project construction year' and carry out the construction of 42 key projects with a planned investment of 3.42 billion yuan to promote the county's economic development", said Zhu Handong, head of Dabu county at the second session of Dabu's 14th People's Congress.

The county should accelerate the construction of the Meizhou-Dabu Expressway and its east extension. It needs to attach importance to land acquisition, demolition and relocation to ensure the project can be completed and can open to traffic in the earliest possible time.

The 11.3-kilometer-long expressway connecting Sanhe Exit of the Meizhou-Dabu Expressway and the county town should be built with high standards. Active efforts should be made to get the Dabu-Chaozhou Expressway and Dabu-Chaozhou Railway projects approved. The inter-county freeway between Dabu and Fengshun should be planned and built. The preliminary work for the reconstruction of the section of S221 Highway from the provincial border to Chayang Huachuang should be well done. The county should also work on the reconstruction and the repair of the four bridges. All-out efforts should be put towards migrant settlements and other preliminary work in the Han River (Gaopi) water control project.

Zhu said the successful outcomes from developing areas show that a project must have policy support and a sufficient investment. Dabu should make full use of its "gold-lettered signboard" from the Central Soviet Area county, collect project information and plan major construction projects.
