Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei should fully implement the plan approved by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee to develop the three regions together, said Vice-Premier Zhang Gaoli at a conference in Beijing on July 24.

The CPC Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the collaborative development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, and the relevant authorities and organizations should take specific measures to accomplish the objectives the plan set up and come up with clear road maps and time tables for their tasks, Zhang said.

The relevant authorities should focus on the most important objective of the plan - to shift the roles that Beijing is playing but which are not necessary to its function as a national capital to Tianjin and Hebei, and the three regions integrate transportation, coordinate environmental protection and the transfer and upgrading of industries, Zhang said.

Also, Zhang required the authorities to prevent blind development of real estate in areas around Beijing.
