Regional coordination plays key role in development

With a major role in the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, the province has become the location for the transformation of scientific research from Beijing and Tianjin, and the manufacturing base of design by Beijing and Tianjin.

The effect is becoming obvious. Progress has been made in three key sectors — transportation, industry and environmental protection. 

The average concentration of PM2.5 across the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region has decreased by about 40 percent from 2013 levels.

More than 1,400 enterprises from Beijing and Tianjin have moved to Hebei. In 2018, the Shibaolang Comprehensive Innovation and Reform Experimental Area carried out 28 institutional reforms while firms, such as Alibaba and Hikvision established regional headquarters in Baoding.

Hebei has teamed up with Beijing and Tianjin to build more than 210 science and technology parks, innovation bases, technology markets and innovation alliances. Turnover in technology in Beijing and Tianjin reached nearly 20 billion yuan (US$2.9 billion) last year, an increase of more than 25 percent.

By 2020, the total technology transactions are expected to be more than 50 billion yuan. In the fields of next-generation IT, integrated circuits, health, energy-saving and environmental protection, intelligent equipment, new-energy intelligent vehicles, new materials, artificial intelligence and modern agriculture, Hebei will support the transformation of 1,000 advanced scientific and technological achievements in Beijing and Tianjin.

By 2020, major breakthroughs will have been made in the Shijiazhuang-Baoding-Langfang Comprehensive Innovation and Reform Experimental Area, Hebei Jingnan National Science and Technology Achievement Transformation Demonstration Area, Modern Agricultural Science and Technology Demonstration Zone around Beijing and Zhangjiakou.

The total mileage of expressways and railways in Hebei ranks first in the country. High-speed railways between Beijing and Zhangjiakou and between Beijing and Shenyang are under construction.

The Beijing-Taizhou and Beijing-Kunming expressways have been operational. 

Chengde Puning and Cangzhou Zhongjie airports have started operation.
