BEIJING, July 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Han Zheng on Tuesday stressed efforts to promote coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
Han, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks while presiding over a meeting of a leading group for the region's coordinated development.
Han called for efforts to boost the construction of major projects, including the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei inter-city railway, while maintaining regular COVID-19 prevention and control measures.
Research should be done to further clarify main policies in relieving Beijing of functions non-essential to its role as China's capital. Efforts should be made to extend high-quality educational and medical resources from Beijing and Tianjin to Hebei, narrowing the gap of public services, he said. Enditem
