Town drafts blueprint for development


Zhaoxiang Town in Shanghai’s Qingpu District has released its blueprint for development through 2035.

The town will undertake an industrial upgrade from traditional business and trade servicing of manufacturing, retail and catering to modern service industries highlighting software and information service.

By 2035, the town will have 215.8 hectares of public green spaces, and its per capita greenery space will amount to 14.7 square meters from 7.2 square meters in 2016, according to the blueprint.

The town aims to become an ecological and liveable town, with a cluster of world-leading modern service industries, highlighting the development of MICE and modern logistics.

The town’s shortage of public service facilities, greenery spaces, sports and culture venues will be eased under combined measures.

Agricultural tourism and production will be developed at Zhongbu, Hemu, Songze and Fangxia villages with B&B, culture as well as innovation industries near the Songze Culture Park.

Rural revitalization, public service supply and greenery networks will be enhanced, providing more leisure venues and public facilities for residents.
