Province of Zuid Holland activily involved in Hebei - Xiong’an new area




雄安新区地处的战略位置

雄安新区地处北京、天津、保定腹地,距北京、天津均为105公里,距石家庄155公里,距保定30公里,距北京新机场55公里,区位优势明显,交通便捷通畅,地质条件稳定,生态环境优良,资源环境承载能力较强,现有开发程度较低,发展空间充裕,具备高起点高标准开发建设的基本条件。

河北雄安新区的设立和规划一方面紧紧围绕在“打造北京非首都功能疏解集中承载地”的主题之上,另一方面始终强调“采用现代信息、环保技术,建成绿色低碳、智能高效、环保宜居且具备优质公共服务的新型城市”的要求。“构建科学合理空间布局、塑造新时代城市风貌、打造优美自然生态环境、发展高端高新产业、构建快捷高效交通网、建设绿色智慧新城、和构筑现代化城市安全体系”是雄安新区至2035年的发展愿景。

南荷兰省政府作为河北省的友好省份,多年来建立了坚实稳固的合作友好关系,在水环境和农业方面取得许多实质性的成果。今年5月份,将由两位副省长率团访华,此次行程的重中之重是参访考察雄安新区。南荷兰省访问团非常荣幸成为首先进入雄安新区考察的国际团组,在未来也将持续透过省里企业的优势提供雄安新区在城市发展上重要的支持,并持续深化合作关系。

The geostrategic location of Xiongan New Area

Located about 100 kilometers south-west of central Beijing, Xiongan New Area covers three counties of Hebei Province (Xiongxian, Rongcheng and Anxin), and is home to Baiyangdian, one of the largest freshwater wetlands in North China.

Comparable to the Shenzhen and Shanghai Pudong special economic zones, the New Area is expected to boost the economic development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei (Jing-Jin-Ji) region, and accommodate Beijing’s non-governmental organizations, state-owned companies, relocated urban population, and other financial and public institutions. It is not only set up to curb urban sprawl and bridge growth disparities between North and South China. But, in line with the 13th Five Year Plan, the New Area is also established and planned to broaden China’s institutional reform and promote the idea of environmentally friendly green cities.

Xiongan New Area’s master plan

The master plan, approved by the central government and released by the Hebei provincial government in April 2018, has focused on themes such as regional integration, green and smart city, innovation-driven industry, and scenic ecological environment. Xiongan New Area will not only integrate the development of Beijing and Tianjin, as well as Shijiangzhuang and Baoding, but also coordinate economic growth, technological innovation, finance and human resources. Opening wider to the outside world and becoming a new platform for foreign cooperation will also be the task of Xiongan as one of China’s three economic engines. Xiongan’s ambition is to become the leading digital city with modern industrial systems and intelligent infrastructure.

In terms of environment preservation and ecological development, the master plan has paid a great deal of attention to becoming a world-class green, small, and modern city. For example, the plan mentioned wastewater and garbage disposal systems have to be built up in the beginning, and supply of 100 percent clean electricity has to be realized by introducing renewable energies to the New Area. The treatment and protection of Baiyangdian Lake is the priority of Xiongan in the short-term planning. Most land in Xiong’an is farmland, therefore for the coming period, knowledge related to specific topics such as urban planning and sponge city will be needed. In the longer term, the mid-arid Xiong’an will need to develop their agri-horticulture sector as well, in order to provide safe and healthy food to its citizen. All in all, this new special zone creates opportunities for Dutch expertise in order to establish sustainable economic growth.

Province of Zuid Holland as a sister province of Hebei is actively involved with the future development of Xiong’an new area by providing expertise in urban strategic planning in terms of food, water and energy nexus. From 12 May to 19 May the Province of Zuid Holland will lead a delegation consisting of company representatives in the field of sustainable development and horti-agriculture to Xiongan new area as part of their China Mission. It is an extraordinary opportunity for the delegation from Province of Zuid Holland because this will be the first group of international officials to visit this newly established area. The delegation is looking forward to be further engaged with the latest development in Xiongan.
