3-year Delta zone action plan unveiled

A three-year action plan for the development of the Yangtze River Delta Ecology and Greenery Integration Demonstration Zone was unveiled yesterday, covering projects that include the western extension of Metro Line 17 and Fudan University’s Qingpu campus.

The Line 17 extension will stretch 13 kilometers and construction of the 6.6km Xicen-Oriental Land section is due to start in late June. It will be operational at the end of 2023.

Fudan will set up an innovation college in the area surrounding the Huawei R&D Center, covering majors such as computing and intelligence, integrated circuits and micro-nano electronics, biotechnology and biomedical engineering, and next-generation communication engineering. Around 8,000 students will be enrolled. Its construction time was not specified. 

The action plan issued by Shanghai’s suburban Qingpu District, Suzhou in Jiangsu  Province and Jiaxing in Zhejiang Province, specifies tasks and timetables for major projects in the zone between 2021 to 2023.

The Yangtze River Delta region has one of the most active, open and innovative economies in China. The demonstration zone concept was first proposed in January 2019, and the development of the region has become a national strategy.

Qingpu is now promoting a number of major construction projects in ecological and environmental protection, industrial innovation and livelihood services.
