[New Tang Dynasty Beijing time on August 4, 2021]A few days ago, the Chinese Communist government issued a document clarifying that the Xiongan New District Management Committee is a dispatched agency of the Hebei Provincial Government. The second generation of Youhong pointed out that this shows that the Xiongan New Area has been downgraded from the original national level to a provincial-level local development zone, which means that this project that has been promoted as a “millennium plan” has failed.
On August 3, the “Beijing Daily” reported that the Standing Committee of the People’s Congress of Hebei Province of the Communist Party of China passed the “Regulations on Hebei Xiong’an New District” on July 29 and will come into effect on September 1. According to the regulations, Xiong’an New District will become a central carrying site for Beijing’s non-capital functional relief, and will focus on undertaking innovation platforms such as Beijing higher schools and their branches, branches, graduate schools, and public institutions; national-level scientific research institutes, laboratories, engineering research centers, etc. , Innovation Center.
The regulations also make it clear that the Xiongan New District Management Committee is a dispatched agency of the Hebei Provincial Government. It exercises the provincial-level economic and social management authority granted by the state and Hebei Province by referring to the administrative powers of the city government divided into districts.
An inconveniently named Mr. Wang, the second generation of Red, told The Epoch Times that four years ago, the Chinese Communist Party had positioned Xiongan as a national-level project, and Shenzhen in the north was ambitious. It is now downgraded to a provincial-level local economic development zone, which shows that this major project has failed again. Moreover, Beijing is still migrating to Xiong’an. It is still unclear whether the future will go smoothly.
Gao Yu, a senior mainland media person, also analyzed the Epoch Times that the new regulations mean that Xiong’an, which was originally positioned as the “Vice Capital of China”, will be transformed into a new prefecture-level district in Hebei, and it will be downgraded by several levels.
But Beijing observer Hua Po believes that the ultimate level of the Xiongan New Area depends on it. Now it is at the prefecture and city level, and it may be upgraded to a provincial, ministerial, or vice-provincial level in the future.
Gao Yu also said that the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China positioned the Xiongan New Area as a “millennium plan” four years ago, but now that the Chinese economy is in trouble, the Beijing authorities may not have the funds to complete the project, and simply give it to the local government to take their time.
According to her analysis, Xiong’an New District is adjacent to Baiyangdian Lake and is accused of being low-lying and prone to flooding. In the current flood situation, the Beijing authorities handed over Xiong’an to Hebei Province, which is also a way to shed the burden.
On April 1, 2017, the Chinese Communist Party media issued a unified draft, announcing the establishment of state-level Xiong’an New Districts in Xiongxian, Rongcheng, and Anxin, Hebei, and called it a “millennium plan and a national event”. At the time, many people thought it was just an April Fool’s Day joke.
In the following period, housing prices in the area were soaring wildly, and it was once close to the first-tier cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. However, after the hype, the construction of Xiong’an New District gradually fell into silence, and it was called the “Tianzi No. 1” unfinished project.
