400,000 peo­ple to move to Beijing sub­urb

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Beijing will move many of its city ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fices out of the city cen­ter to the east­ern sub­urb of Tongzhou, and about 400,000 res­i­dents will even­tu­ally leave the cap­i­tal city for the sub­ur­ban dis­trict, ac­cord­ing to the Beijing Mu­nic­i­pal Com­mis­sion of Ur­ban Plan­ning.

Tongzhou is about a 40-minute drive from Beijing.

The move will help the cap­i­tal ease ur­ban prob­lems, such as slow­ing the city’s pop­u­la­tion growth and mov­ing out some of Beijing’s non-cap­i­tal func­tions, ac­cord­ing to the com­mis­sion.
