Shenyang district to get special status
The Huanggu district of Shenyang will become a national cultural and financial cooperation experimental zone. This was announced at the Cultural and Financial Innovation Forum on Tuesday in Beijing. Shenyang, as the eastern starting point of the Belt and Road Initiative, is the economic center of Northeast China, contributing 13 percent to the region’s economy. As the city is transforming from a heavy-industry-based economy to a modern economy, the experimental zone project can help the city in carving out a new presence in the region.
