Xiongan, a new economic zone just south of Beijing in Hebei province, was announced in April 2017 as a place to catalyze the development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, while also easing some of the capital’s metropolitan burdens.
Progress has been slow but steady. Basic infrastructure has been built that planners hope will facilitate the development of north China’s so-called Jing-Jin-Ji region.
Here are some pics from Xiongan’s second birthday.
