Work in full swing as town ready to host CIIE

Xujing Town in Qingpu District has been busy preparing for the upcoming fourth China International Import Expo, officials said on Tuesday.

The town is where the venue of the expo, the National Exhibition and Convention Center, is located.

A grid management mechanism has been implemented over an 8-square-kilometer area around the exhibition and convention center.

“The highest standards of cleanliness have been put in place, and the goal is that streets near the center are clean enough even for people to sit without getting dirty,” said Chen Yu, deputy Party secretary and director of Xujing.

“Meanwhile, 24-hour patrolling will be enhanced during the CIIE to thwart disturbances such as unauthorized street vendors and nighttime construction work near the center,” he said.

The town also mapped out its ambitious development plan for the next five years.

“Xujing will be developed into a town of innovation, vitality, quality, intelligence and ecology,” said Pan Enhua, Party secretary of Xujing. “The spillover effect of the CIIE will be further magnified.”

An international trade platform will be forged and company headquarters in meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions and trade, medical devices and instruments, and digital economy industries will be introduced.

A “15-minute community life circle” is being created in the town, and traffic, culture and education, medical treatment, and commercial facilities will be improved. The idea is that all life’s basic needs and necessities can be available within a 15-minute radius.

The layout of parks, green spaces and bodies of water in the town will be further optimized and improved.
