Xiongan: Next Shen Zhen, New Area Of Hope

Last year, China announced a plan to establish the Xiongan New Area in Hebei Province. The small region was suddenly thrust into the limelight – just as Shenzhen was when China decided to build its first ever Special Economic Zone there in 1980. The blueprint for the Xiongan New Area is a Chinese model for world-class urban development.

 

2017年,以习近平同志为核心的党中央决定,在河北适合地段规划建设一个以新发展理念引领的现代新型城区。从深圳到雄安,一场开拓进取的马拉松仍在继续。

 

In Xi’s own words

 

“小平同志1984年、1992年两次视察南方,视察广东、视察深圳。当时他就是说,要解放思想,敢于闯、敢于试。”

 

Deng Xiaoping inspected Guangdong and Shenzhen twice, in 1984 and 1992. He said we must emancipate our minds and dare to break through and dare to try.

 

“我们今后仍然要走这条正确的道路,要坚定不移地走下去,而且要有新开拓,上新水平。”

 

We must choose the right path and continue along it unswervingly. We must explore new developments and attain higher standards.

 

“雄安新区现在还是一张白纸,受到各方面利益牵绊比较少,要发扬改革创新精神,建立体制机制新高地。”

 

The Xiongan New Area is now a blank sheet of paper, free from the interests of the various parties involved. We must carry forward the spirit of reform and innovation and establish a new high-level institutional mechanism.

 

“建设雄安新区是一项历史性工程,一定要保持历史耐心,有‘功成不必在我’的精神境界。”

 

It is a historic project to build the Xiongan New Area. We must remain patient, remembering that to achieve real success we must have an eye to the long-term future.

 

“稳扎稳打,一茬儿接着一茬儿干。”

 

We must make steady progress, one achievement at a time, and keep the cause going.
