Beijing (English) - - CONTENTS - Trans­lated by Li Shasha Edited by Mark Zuiderveld

Huairou seeks to trans­form into a new dis­trict with a pros­per­ous econ­omy, pleas­ant en­vi­ron­ment and im­proved liveli­hood for its res­i­dents.

Huairou boasts green moun­tains and wa­ter, an­cient sec­tions of the Great Wall, dense prim­i­tive sec­ondary forests and scenic sec­tions of the val­ley along the Baihe River. Dur­ing the Spring and Au­tumn Pe­riod (770– 476 BC), the well-known Yuyang Pre­fec­ture was lo­cated in present-day Huairou, first named dur­ing the Sui and Tang dy­nas­ties (AD 581–907). Un­til 1368, Huairou County was of­fi­cially es­tab­lished. With pic­turesque scenery and a pleas­ing cli­mate, Huairou has been hailed as the “pearl of sub­urb Bei­jing” and the “cap­i­tal's back­yard gar­den.”

As the venue of the NGO Fo­rum on Women of the UN Fourth World Con­fer­ence on Women in 1995, the 2014 APEC Eco­nomic Lead­ers' Week and the Belt and Road Fo­rum for In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion, Huairou func­tioned as an in­ter­na­tional con­ven­tion cen­tre to serve the coun­try's for­eign com­mu­ni­ca­tions, and has be­come a key win­dow to show­case China to the rest of the world.

In re­cent years, Huairou has won more than 30 hon­ourary ti­tles such as “Na­tional Green­ing Model City,” “State-level Eco­log­i­cal Demon­stra­tion Zone,” “State-level Healthy Zone” and “Statelevel Sus­tained De­vel­op­ment Com­pre­hen­sive Ex­per­i­men­tal Zone.” Dur­ing the “13th FiveYear Plan” pe­riod, Huairou ac­tively serves the cap­i­tal's “four cen­tres” con­struc­tion, in­sists on its de­vel­op­ment di­rec­tion of in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion, high-end ser­vice and in­te­gra­tion, em­pha­sis­ing the three driv­ing forces of “sci-tech, cul­ture and ecol­ogy,” com­pre­hen­sively build­ing the “1+3” de­vel­op­ment mode con­sist­ing of an eco­log­i­cal con­ser­va­tion cen­tre and three fields in­clud­ing scitech R&D, film and tele­vi­sion cul­ture, as well as leisure, con­ven­tion and ex­hi­bi­tion. It also seeks to trans­form and up­grade its econ­omy to be built into a new subur­ban city of the cap­i­tal, boast­ing a pros­per­ous econ­omy, beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ment, har­mo­nious so­ci­ety, well-be­ing of the peo­ple and ap­pro­pri­ate con­di­tions for start-ups.

Eco­log­i­cal Nat­u­ral En­vi­ron­ment

In north­east Bei­jing, Huairou nes­tles be­tween the Yan­shan Moun­tains in the north and the North China Plain in the south. It ad­joins the Miyun Dis­trict to the east, Shunyi Dis­trict to the south, Chang­ping and Yan­qing dis­tricts to the west, and Fengn­ing, Luan­ping and Chicheng coun­ties in He­bei Prov­ince to the north. Huairou has a to­tal area of 21.226 mil­lion square kilo­me­tres, with 89 per­cent of its area in the moun­tains. Its green cov­er­age rate reaches 78.9 per­cent, with the for­est cov­er­age rate 56.4 per­cent, the ur­ban green cov­er­age rate 55.61 per­cent, and the per capita area of parks and green­belts 26.22 square me­tre/per­son. It is called a “city em­braced by forests.” The largest Labagoumen prim­i­tive for­est in North China sits on the north­ern end of Huairou, in an area of 18,000 hectares.

The air qual­ity in Huairou al­ways ranks high in Bei­jing with the eco­log­i­cal in­dex first out of all the 16 dis­tricts. The av­er­age an­nual con­tent val­ues of at­mo­spheric PM 2.5 (par­tic­u­late mat­ter that is 2.5 mi­crons in di­am­e­ter), PM 10, sul­fur diox­ide and ni­tro­gen diox­ide are on the lower side among Bei­jing's 16 dis­tricts. Nighty-eight per­cent of Huairou's dis­trict area is un­der pro­tec­tion as the cap­i­tal's grade-1, 2 and 3 drink­ing wa­ter

preser­va­tion ar­eas. There are 17 grade-4 and above rivers, 22 reser­voirs, 774 moun­tain springs within Huairou, with a to­tal an­nual wa­ter re­source vol­ume of 860 mil­lion cu­bic me­tres, ac­count­ing for 20 per­cent of the city's to­tal, and the sur­face wa­ter qual­ity com­pli­ant with the na­tional grade-2 stan­dards. In 2015, Huairou was ac­claimed as the State-level eco­log­i­cal civil­i­sa­tion demon­stra­tion area and the State-level eco­log­i­cal preser­va­tion and con­struc­tion demon­stra­tion area.

Heat­ing and gas sup­ply is pro­vided at a cer­tain scale in in­dus­trial zones and ur­ban res­i­den­tial ar­eas, fa­cil­i­tat­ing in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment. A com­pre­hen­sive garbage treat­ment cen­tre has been es­tab­lished, re­al­is­ing harm­less garbage treat­ment all over Huairou Dis­trict, and rais­ing the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of ur­ban oper­a­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion.

Huairou also has ad­van­ta­geous ed­u­ca­tion and med­i­cal re­sources. The en­rol­ment rate and com­ple­tion rate reached 100 per­cent. All pub­lic pri­mary and mid­dle schools have es­tab­lished co­op­er­a­tive re­la­tion­ships with qual­ity schools in Cen­tral Bei­jing. The dis­trict also en­joys wellestab­lished med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties and a re­gional med­i­cal ser­vice net­work, with health ser­vice in­sti­tu­tions avail­able in all com­mu­ni­ties, sub­dis­tricts, towns and town­ships. In an area of 100,000 square me­tres, Bei­jing Huairou Hospi­tal is among China's top hospi­tals and was put to use in June 2014. In May 2017, Bei­jing Chaoyang Hospi­tal was en­trusted to ad­min­is­ter Bei­jing Huairou Hospi­tal.

High-end In­dus­trial Parks

Based on the con­struc­tion of Huairou Science City, Huairou's sci-tech re­search and de­vel­op­ment will serve the con­struc­tion of Bei­jing's “na­tional tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion cen­tre.” Fo­cus­ing on cut­ting-edge tech­nolo­gies and in­no­va­tive projects needed in the coun­try, orig­i­nal and fron­tier in­no­va­tive ca­pa­bil­i­ties will be en­hanced. Huairou Science City will be built into the science city with first­class orig­i­nal in­no­va­tive ca­pa­bil­ity and a key car­rier of Bei­jing's orig­i­nal in­no­va­tion, a source of orig­i­nal in­no­va­tion with global in­flu­ence, a world-lead­ing com­pre­hen­sive na­tional science cen­tre, and a science city com­pa­ra­ble to the Sil­i­con Val­ley and Tsukuba Science City.

The film and tele­vi­sion cul­ture in­dus­try in Huairou orig­i­nated from the Feit­eng Moviemak­ing Base in Yang­song Town in 1995. In 2014, the Huairou Film & Tele­vi­sion In­dus­try Park, Bei­jing, China (HRFT) was set up. By the end of 2016, the HRFT has gath­ered lead­ing film and tele­vi­sion com­pa­nies, and more than 400 other film and tele­vi­sion com­pa­nies and re­lated com­pa­nies. It has also re­ceived crews of 2,400 films and TV plays. Nearly half of do­mes­tic block­busters with box of­fice earn­ings hit­ting 100 mil­lion yuan and above have been shot in Huairou. Based on the HRFT, Huairou will con­struct the new town of film and tele­vi­sion cul­ture fea­tur­ing com­plete in­dus­trial chain, clus­ter of as­so­ci­ated com­pa­nies, and com­plete com­pre­hen­sive ser­vices, and build a world-lead­ing State-level film and tele­vi­sion demon­stra­tion zone with strong com­pet­i­tive­ness.

Tak­ing chances of hold­ing in­ter­na­tional high-end con­fer­ences and based on the Bei­jing Yanqi Lake Eco­log­i­cal De­vel­op­ment Demon­stra­tion Zone, the con­ven­tion and ex­hi­bi­tion in­dus­try in Huairou will serve the con­struc­tion of Bei­jing's “in­ter­na­tional com­mu­ni­ca­tions.” It will un­der­take in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences and ex­hi­bi­tions to de­velop the in­te­grated con­fer­ence and ex­hi­bi­tion in­dus­try and pro­mote its high-end de­vel­op­ment. The con­ven­tion and ex­hi­bi­tion in­dus­try in Huairou has be­come a new ur­ban busi­ness card of Bei­jing.

Huairou has abun­dant cul­tural and tourist re­sources. The tourism has formed a pat­tern of di­ver­si­fied tourist prod­ucts based on nat­u­ral land­scape tour, fea­tur­ing leisure and vo­ca­tion tour, vil­lage and spe­cialty tour and Manchu folk­lore tour, and sup­ple­mented by film and tele­vi­sion cul­tural tours, fit­ness tours, and com­pe­ti­tion and sport­ing tours. Huairou has been listed as a “na­tional dis­trictwide tourism demon­stra­tion zone” and re­ceives over 10 mil­lion tourists a year. Huairou aims to build a high-end leisure tourist des­ti­na­tion, pro­mote the con­struc­tion of na­tional dis­trict-wide tourism demon­stra­tion zone, and step up its ef­forts to shape leisure tourism with high-end qual­ity prod­ucts and spe­cial features as the core com­pet­i­tive­ness to fos­ter large-scale tourism.

A Home for Start-ups and In­vestors

Huairou is a vi­brant and blessed place for in­vest­ment and busi­ness pro­mo­tion. In­clu­sive Huairou has al­ways em­pha­sised on op­ti­mis­ing soft en­vi­ron­ment for in­vest­ment de­vel­op­ment. Bei­jing Huairou In­vest­ment Pro­mo­tion Bu­reau, Huairou Ad­min­is­tra­tive Li­cens­ing Man­age­ment and Co­or­di­na­tion Of­fice, Huairou In­vest­ment At­trac­tion Joint Con­fer­ence Sys­tem and SME Pub­lic Ser­vice Plat­form have been set up to pro­vide seam­less ser­vices in a bid to of­fer in­vestors a qual­ity, ef­fi­cient and har­mo­nious in­vest­ment and de­vel­op­ment en­vi­ron­ment.

Pref­er­en­tial poli­cies have been is­sued to at­tract in­vest­ment, such as the Supportive Pol­icy on Spe­cial Finds to Pro­mote Re­gional Eco­nomic Trans­for­ma­tion and De­vel­op­ment in Huairou Dis­trict. A se­ries of tal­ent in­tro­duc­tion, cul­ti­va­tion and stim­u­lus poli­cies has been in­tro­duced,such as the Meth­ods on Se­lect­ing Out­stand­ing Youths.
