China supports Shenzhen in building a demonstration pilot zone
China will support Shenzhen in building a demonstration pilot zone for socialism with Chinese characteristics, under a guideline issued on Sunday by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council.
The building of the demonstration area will help deepen reform and expand opening-up comprehensively.
It will help better develop the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and enrich the practice of the "one country, two systems" principle, the guideline said, adding that it will be a good way to explore a new path in building a great modern socialist country in an all-around way and providing strong support for realizing the Chinese dream of great national rejuvenation.
The guideline said that by 2025 Shenzhen will rank among the top cities in the world in economic strength and quality of development, with intensive research and development investment and world-class industrial innovation capacity.
It will be built into a modern, international and innovative city by then, with its cultural power greatly enhanced and its public service level and ecological environment quality reaching an international advanced level.
By 2035, Shenzhen will become a national model of high-quality development and a globally recognized center of innovation and entrepreneurship. It will become an example for China to build itself into a powerful modern socialist country.
By midcentury, Shenzhen will become a global benchmark city in its competitiveness, innovation and outstanding influence.
Shenzhen will be the leading player in high-quality development, the example of law-based governance, the model of urban civilization, the good example of people's livelihood and happiness, and the pioneer in sustainable development.
