Beijing has pledged to closely cooperate and fully support the development of Xiongan New Area and encourage people to move there as needed, officials said on Friday.

Liu Bozheng, deputy director of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei development group, said the Xiongan New Area, south of Beijing, will be the central location for non-capital functions.

Therefore, Beijing will actively strengthen cooperation with Xiongan on construction and services, accelerating the relocation of industries that suit the new super economic zone.

"Beijing municipal government attaches high importance to the development of Xiongan New Area," he said. "Beijing will support whatever Xiongan's needs during its constructions and development."

He said Beijing will assist in the planning and policy cohesion in sectors such as infrastructure construction, transportation integration, public service sharing.

The capital will also support innovative companies to establish themselves in Xiongan.

China announced plans to establish Xiongan New Area in April this year as part of measures to integrate the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei regional development and cure "urban ills" such as traffic congestion and air pollution in the capital.

Located about 100 kilometers southwest of downtown Beijing, Xiongan New Area will mainly cover the three existing counties of Xiongxian, Rongcheng and Anxin in Hebei province.
