"Blueprint" for Guangzhou to be announced today
Latest Updated at 2009-September-27 09:13:17

A blueprint has been drawn up for a future Guangzhou. The 2020 Guangzhou Strategic Plan for Integrated Urban Development will be released today (Sep 27) and, after expert advice is canvassed, finalized and put into implementation.

In the preliminary draft of Guangzhou 2020: an Integrated Urban Development Strategy made public in 2007, Guangzhou was not positioned as an "international metropolis"; the goal was more practical鈥撯揵uilding a "modernized metropolis".

This initial positioning for Guangzhou City as a political, economic, cultural and transportation centre of Guangdong Province, a pivotal city of the country and a modernized metropolis with influence in Southeast Asia. Sources from the Urban Planning Bureau revealed that some major adjustments had been made according to the Outline Plan for Reform and Development of the Pearl River Delta.

Compared with the overall plan of 2010, the 2020 Strategy (initial draft) contains an additional "moderate adjustment" tactic and an emphasis on the need to lower population density in the city centre. The matching public infrastructure built for all communities will enable the citizens to have a decent life and work there. According to the Strategy, Guangzhou will make its best efforts to ensure a balance between housing supply and demand and a rational structure.
