On April 1, the central government announced it would develop Xiongan New Area in North China’s Hebei province, about 100 kilometers southwest of downtown Beijing. It will be the third national special economic zone after Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and Shanghai Pudong New Area.

According to a circular issued by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council, 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 Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

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.
