Meanwhile,the two cities plan to begin construction on the Ningbo-Zhoushan Railway by the end of this year.

Integrated development will be boosted in terms of talent, public services, and the free flow of market elements as well. The two cities will strengthen cooperation in education by setting up five to eight courses and training 100 teachers.

Residents from the two cities will be entitled to more integrated public services, including education, healthcare, and government services. The direct settlement for trans-city medical expenses will be enabled in 117 designated medical institutions in Ningbo and 60 in Zhoushan as of the end of this year.
