Guangdong officials in August issued a Five Integrations Plan for Pearl River Delta, which blueprints integrated infra-structure, industry allocation, basic pub-lic services, urban and rural construct-ion and environmental protection in the area until the year 2020.

200 MILLION RMB INPUT

150 projects with a budget of 197.67 billion RMB is planned to improve PRD's transportation, energy, water and informationalization, with 29 related to railway.

By the end of 2010, gaps in mobile prepaid package tariffs between PRD cities will be narrowed down. By January of 2012, mobile cross city and roaming charges between Guangzhou and Fo-shan will be cancelled. Cross city ch-arges for fixed lines in Guangzhou-Fo-shan-Zhaoqing, Shenzhen-Dongguan-Huizhou and Zhuhai-Zhongshan-Jiang-men will be eliminated. Telecom tariffs for Guangzhou-Foshan, Shenzhen-Don-gguan-Huizhou and Zhuhai-Zhongsh-an-Jiangmen will also be unified. By January 2015, all mobile cross city and roaming charges and fixed line cross city charges within PRD will be cancelled.

BARRIER-FREE PUBLIC SERVICES

The plan also calls for PRD residents to enjoy barrier-free public services in the next decade. E-transportation-cards and patient file systems will be unified and secondary vocational school education will be free of charge.

Education, sanitation, culture and sp-orts, public transportation, social ins-urance, house insurance, employment insurance, medical insurance, env-ironmental protection and other mod-ern services in PRD will be shared by registered permanent residents. By 2012, a cross-city housing insurance qual-ification recognition system will be set up and housing assistance qualification for low income families will be rec-ognized within all the nine PRD cities.

WATERWAY CLEANUP

By 2020, Guangdong will spend 34 billion RMB to clean up four heavily polluted cross city PRD waterways. By 2012, river water in the cross-border areas is expected to have a quality pass rate of 80 percent. By 2015, the rate will be increased to 90 percent. By 2020, the quality of river water in the cross-border areas of cities will be in Grade IV thus suitable for industrial use. Officials also plan to establish a cross city water com-pensation system whereby pollution so-urce cities will pay compensation to the affected cities. Cities that clean up the water will be compensated by benefitted down stream cities. (by Zhiling)
