Bei­jing: Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping has called for peo­ple­ori­ented ap­proach in plan­ning and build­ing a new sub-cen­tre for the na­tion’s cap­i­tal city Bei­jing. “Glob­ally ad­vanced en­er­gysav­ing and en­vi­ron­ment pro­tec­tion tech­nolo­gies, stan­dards, ma­te­ri­als and crafts­man­ship must be ex­ten­sively used to build a green city, a for­est city, a spongy city and a smart city,”, Mr Xi said last Fri­day at a con­fer­ence of the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau of the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC). The plan­ning, de­sign and con­struc­tion of the sub-cen­tre must have global out­look and Chi­nese char­ac­ters, use high stan­dards, and stick to the con­cept of in­no­va­tive, co­or­di­nated, green and in­clu­sive de­vel­op­ment, said a state­ment is­sued af­ter the meet­ing. “Plan­ning must come be­fore con­struc­tion, the use of ev­ery inch of land must be con­sid­ered care­fully be­fore con­struc­tion be­gins,” Mr Xi said. He urged city plan­ners and builders to bear in mind that they are cre­at­ing his­tory and mak­ing an art piece. Xin­hua
