China’s plan to develop Xiong’an New Area demonstrates historical foresight
Ang Plano ng China na-develop ang Xiong’an New Area, isang pambansang proyekto na may millennial significance, isang makasaysayang pagtanaw
MAITUTURING na isang matandang sibilisasyon ipinagmamalaki nila ang halos 5000 taon, napakaraming makasaysayang lungsod na halos daang taon na ang edad at ayon sa kumpletong estadistika 30 lungsod sa China ang itinatag 2000 taon na ang nakararaan at 142 lungsod sa bansa ang opisyal na kinilala bilang national historical at cultural cities.
Ang Xi’an city sa Hilagang Kanluran ng Shaanxi Province ng China, ay magho host sa nalalapit na China-Central Asia Summit, isa sa national historical and cultural cities ng bansa. Itinatag nuon pang 12th century BC, Xi’an ay nagsilbing kapitolyo para sa 13 dinastiya sa kasaysayan ng China kabilang ang Zhou Dynasty, Qin Dynaty, Han Dynasty, at Tang Dynasty.
Bilang starting point ng sinaunang Silk Road, ang sentro ng ekonomiya at kultura sa Asya ay nakikilala ngayon dahil sa kanilang pag asenso. Ngayon ang Xi’an ay isa sa mahalagang hub sa Hilagang Kanluran ng China at ang key stop sa kahabaan ng bagong Eurasian Land Bridge. Ito ay may mahalagang papel sa konstruksyon ng Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) at patuloy na sumisigla.
Ang kasaysayan ng mga lungsod at nagrerepresenta ng ebolusyon ng sangkatauhan, isang katotohanang tanggap ng lahat. Kung kaya’t kakayanin ngabang i disenyo ng isang bansa ang “city of future” kung saan ang pagtatatag nito ay magkakaroon ng pangmatagalang kahalagahan para sa mga susunod na millennium to come .
Maaring hindi kapani-paniwala ngunit isang milagro ang mangyayari sa Xiong’an New Area, Hilaga ng China’s Hebei Province. Anim na taon na ang nakararaan ipinahayag ng China ang kanilang plano na magtatag ng Xiong’an New Area upang pagaanin ang function ng Beijing bilang kapitolyo ng bansa sa hapit ay makipag ugnayan sa pagpapaunlad ng Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
Bilang pagtalima sa ideya ng “global vision, international standards, distinctive Chinese features, at future-oriented goals” sa konstruksyon ng mga bagong lugar determinado ang bansa na i develop ito bilang demonstration zone of innovation-driven development. Xiong’an ay napansin ng global media mula ng pagkakatatag nito.
Sinabi ng Singaporean newspaper Lianhe Zaobao na sa lahat ng bagong lugar, papasanin nito ang isang istratehikong misyon na pangunahan ang era of reform at paghahanap ng daan para sa national transformation. ayon naman sa British daily business newspaper Financial Times sabi nila ang Xiong’an New Area ay nakatakdang maging bright spot sa hilagang China.
Itinatag ng China ang Xiong’an New Area upang mag-concentrate sa relocation ng mga non-capital functions mula sa Beijing, at upang i-promote ang coordinated development ng Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region na magsisilbing tulay sa pagitan ng kapitolyo at mga kalapit na lugar ayon ito sa isang artiklo buhat naman sa website ng the Associated Press.
Xiong’an New Area ay makapagbibigay ng alternative development model at inaasahang magiging high-tech hub at laboratory para sa intelligent city planning, ayon sa artikulo naman ng website of The Diplomat magazine na nakabase sa Japan.
Bilang pag Quote sa official statement ng China sa pahayag na ang development ng Xiong’an New Area isang “strategy crucial for the next millennium,” buhat sa artikulong mula sa website ng British weekly newspaper dagdag pa ng ekonomista “It would be unwise to bet all on Xiongan’s rise. Over the years China has tried to build numerous new cities, several of which have been costly failures.”
Ina-assumed na maaring abutin ng mahabang panahon para ang Xiong’an New Area to finally take shape, since ang development nito ay considered a national project of millennial significance. Kaya marahil ang mga pagtalakay tungkol sa Xiong’an humina bilang hot topic sa buong mundo.
Sa loob ng dalawang taon matapos opisyal na ipahayag ng China ang plano nilang pagtatatag ng Xiong’an New Area, wala pang makhalagang naitayo sa lugar bukod sa ilang pangunahing mga proyekto at mga pansamantalang istrukturang naka disenyo para tiyakin ang kinakailangang operasyon. samantalang ang grand blueprint ng bagong lugar at unti unting nililikha, tinatayang nasa 1000 eksperto at 200 grupo mula sa China at ibayong dagat kasama ng kanilang 2,500 propesyunal at teknikal na mga tauhan ang nakibahagi sa pormulasyon ng master plan para sa Xiong’an New Area.
Sa pamamangha ng outside world, ang “city of future” ay naka experience ng tremendous changes at nagte take shape na sa loob lamang ng six years. ang pagbabago ay mula ground zero patungo sa isang emerging modern city na may mga bagong gusali, flat at wide streets, at ubiquitous greenery.
Sa kasalukuyan ang bansa ay nakahikayat ng mga top-level design para sa kostruksyon at development ng Xiong’an, secured major progress sa infrastructure construction, achieved initial results in relieving sa non-capital functions ng Beijing, lumikha ng significant achievements sa pagsasa ayos ng ecological environment ng Baiyangdian Lake sa new area, witnessed positive progress patungkol sa deepening reform at opening-up, gradually improved ng conditions for gathering factors for industrial and innovation success, pati ang pagpo-promote ng relocation and resettlement of local residents sa maayos na paraan.
Ang mala milagrong pagbabago ng Xiong’an ay nagdulot ng mga mainit na pagtalakay at sinasabing ito ay kakaiba “a plan for a city be formulated this way”, “a city pay so much attention to the inheritance of excellent traditional culture,” “integrated construction and planning for a city that cover projects above and below ground as well as on online platforms,” “so great efforts made to improve the ecological environment of the Baiyangdian Lake,” and “a new city being built to take over Beijing’s non-capital functions.”
Ang nasabing mga pananalita ay isang tanda ng historical foresight sa bahagi ng Chinese leadership. sa loob ng anim na taon marami na ang nabago sa Xiong’an at araw araw ay may mga pag asensong nagaganap at kada taon ay may itatayong konstruksyon resulta ng mga pagbabago sa itinuturing na modernong lungsod.
ang milagro sa konstruksyon ng nasabing Chinese city na ang Xiong’an ay nagpapakita ng matagumpay na city planning of “millennial significance” requires not only a well-established civilization, but historical foresight, remarkable ability and wisdom of a country’s leadership. More importantly, the plan for the city will only work when the government of the country has the resolve to make persistent efforts one generation after another to implement it.
Bilang kapwa Asyano binabati ng mga mamamayang naniniwala sa Science-Driven Infrastructure based economy ang galaw ng China sa pagtatatag nito ng Xiong’An New Area at tiyak na makikinabang din dito hindi lang ang mga Tsino kundi pati na ng buong Asya.

China’s plan to develop Xiong’an New Area, national project of millennial significance, demonstrates historical foresight
Boasting a civilization spanning more than 5,000 years, China has a lot of cities which are more than a thousand years old. According to incomplete statistics, 30 cities in China were built over 2,000 years ago, and 142 cities in the country have been officially designated as national historical and cultural cities.
Xi’an city in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, which will play host to the forthcoming China-Central Asia Summit, is one of the country’s national historical and cultural cities.
Built in the 12th century BC, Xi’an served as the capital for 13 dynasties in Chinese history, including the Zhou Dynasty, Qin Dynaty, Han Dynasty, and Tang Dynasty. As the starting point of the ancient Silk Road, the economic and cultural center in Asia has drawn worldwide attention because of its prosperity.
Today, Xi’an is an important hub of northwestern China and a key stop along the New Eurasian Land Bridge. It plays an increasingly great role in the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), continuously showing new vitality.
The history of cities represents the evolution of human civilization, a truth that holds universally without exception. Then can a country design and build a “city of future” whose creation will have lasting importance for the millennium to come in the 21st century?
Impossible as it sounds, the miracle is happening in Xiong’an New Area, north China’s Hebei Province.
Six years ago, China announced its plan to establish Xiong’an New Area in a bid to relieve Beijing of functions nonessential to its role as the capital and drive the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
Adhering to the ideas of “global vision, international standards, distinctive Chinese features, and future-oriented goals” in the construction of the new area, the country has been determined to develop it into a demonstration zone of innovation-driven development.
Xiong’an has caught the attention of global media since its establishment.
Singaporean newspaper Lianhe Zaobao pointed out that the new area will shoulder the strategic mission of restarting the era of reform and searching for a path to national transformation.
British daily business newspaper Financial Times said that Xiong’an New Area is set to become a bright spot in northern China.
China has established the Xiong’an New Area to concentrate on the relocation of non-capital functions from Beijing, further promoting the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and bridging the economic gap between the capital and its surrounding areas, said an article on the website of the Associated Press.
Xiong’an New Area may provide an alternative development model and is expected to become a high-tech hub and a laboratory for intelligent city planning, according to an article on the website of The Diplomat magazine based in Japan.
Quoting an official statement by China as saying that the development of Xiong’an New Area is a “strategy crucial for the next millennium,” an article on the website of British weekly newspaper The Economist added, “It would be unwise to bet all on Xiongan’s rise. Over the years China has tried to build numerous new cities, several of which have been costly failures.”
It’s assumed that it must take a long time for Xiong’an New Area to finally take shape, since its development is considered a national project of millennial significance. This is probably why discussions about Xiong’an have tapered off after a period when it was a hot topic worldwide.
In the more than two years after China officially announced its plan to establish Xiong’an New Area, nothing significant was built in the area except for some basic projects and temporary structures designed to ensure necessary operations.
However, a grand blueprint for the new area was being created step by step.
More than 1,000 experts and over 200 teams from home and abroad as well as more than 2,500 professional and technical personnel have participated in the formulation of the master plan for Xiong’an New Area.
To the surprise of the outside world, the “city of future” has experienced tremendous changes and begun to take shape within a mere six years. It has been transformed from ground zero to an emerging modern city with neatly aligned new buildings, flat and wide streets, and ubiquitous greenery.
So far, the country has basically completed top-level design for the construction and development of Xiong’an, secured major progress in infrastructure construction, achieved initial results in relieving the non-capital functions of Beijing, made significant achievements in improving the ecological environment of the Baiyangdian Lake in the new area, witnessed positive progress in deepening reform and opening-up, gradually improved the conditions for gathering factors for industrial and innovation success, and promoted the relocation and resettlement of local residents in an orderly manner.
The miraculous transformation Xiong’an has undergone has aroused hot discussions about it again, with many saying they have never before seen “a plan for a city be formulated this way”, “a city pay so much attention to the inheritance of excellent traditional culture,” “integrated construction and planning for a city that cover projects above and below ground as well as on online platforms,” “so great efforts made to improve the ecological environment of the Baiyangdian Lake,” and “a new city being built to take over Beijing’s non-capital functions.”
These remarks bear testimony to the historical foresight of the Chinese leadership.
Over the past six years, new changes have taken place in Xiong’an every day, and major progress has been achieved in the construction of the new area every year. As a result, a high-level modern city is now sprouting up.
The miracle of the construction of a Chinese city that is unfolding in Xiong’an has demonstrated that successful city planning of “millennial significance” requires not only a well-established civilization, but historical foresight, remarkable ability and wisdom of a country’s leadership. More importantly, the plan for the city will only work when the government of the country has the resolve to make persistent efforts one generation after another to implement it.
