The State Council on Sept 9 approved the establishment of the Fuzhou new district in a bid to foster new economic growth points and further advance cross-Straits cooperation.
The new district, requested by Southeast China’s Fujian province, will cover 800 square kilometers in its first phase, including Mawei district, Cangshan district, Changle and part of Fuqing. Strategically located, the new district enjoys beautiful ecological environment and a solid industrial basis.
The State Council urged local government to further innovate and open up to turn the new district into an important base for modern industries on China’s southeast coast, as well as a leading area for innovation and ecological culture.
Additionally, the State Council will support and guide the development of the new district through policy implementation, project arrangement and innovation.
