On Friday, Tianjin’s Binhai New Area released proposals for the formulation of the district’s economic and social development over the next five years and, in the longer term, the next 15 years.
The 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025) for Binhai New Area Economic and Social Development and the Long-Range Objectives Through the Year 2035 both envision Binhai’s increasingly notable function as a manufacturing and R&D base and a demo area for finance, international shipping and opening-up reforms in north China.
The 14th Five-Year Plan period will witness the start of a city-wide effort to build a modern socialist city on foundations created by the moderately prosperous society.
A new development philosophy will be implemented to guide the district towards: building a demonstration zone for the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area; strengthening scientific and technological innovation; and creating a pioneering zone for innovation and development.
Over the next five years, Binhai will further achieve a people-centered, high-quality development that is environmentally-friendly, low-resource and intelligence-driven.
The district also notes the opportunities and challenges facing the city during the 14th Five-Year Plan and in terms of the long-term goal of building the district into a modern pilot zone by 2035.
This pilot zone will have a core functional structure featuring 'dual-cycling', where the domestic cycle is the mainstay and domestic and international development reinforce each other.
The proposal was made after rounds of discussions under the leadership of the local government, led by Lian Maojun, Party secretary of the district. It is the result of extensively gathered opinions from a broad cross-section of communities. It follows in-depth investigations and research among people of all ethnic groups and from all walks of life.
