The establishment of the new area is a major strategic deployment of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core to take the overall situation and make scientific decisions to further expand the opening up. It is an important measure for the new era to demonstrate my country’s clear attitude towards all-round opening up and to actively lead the healthy development of economic globalization.
Lingang Special Area sits at the intersection of Yangtze River estuary and Hangzhou Bay, connecting Pudong International Airport, the third largest airport in the world, in the north and Yangshan Deep water Port, the largest container port in the world, in the south. As a critical link on the coastal transport channel in Shanghai and an independent node city in Yangtze River Delta, Lingang also boasts the only multi-purpose port in southeast Shanghai – Shanghai South Port, and combines sea, land, air, rail, metro and river transport.
Thanks to its rich water, forest and wet land resources, the downtown of Lin-gang has a water and green coverage ratio of 65%. Its PM 2.5 index re-mains at around 30 all year round. Lingang offers premium education and health care, as well as improving cultural, entertainment and commercial facilities. All these factors are making Lin-gang Special Area a modern international city with soothing and pro-business environment, achieving high-quality opening-up on deeper levels, in broader areas, and with stronger determination on all fronts.
