Beijing has set a population cap of 2 million for the high-profile Tongzhou district, its municipal subsidiary administrative center, to ensure the center's healthy growth, the capital's deputy mayor said on Thursday.

"Beijing will take steps to avoid a population boom in Tongzhou district," Li Shixiang said.

The eastern suburb has a registered permanent population of 870,000, Li said.
