1. Brief introduction
As a part of the Xixian New Area in Shaanxi province, Jinghe New City is located in Jingyang county of the city of Xianyang, with a planned area of 146 square kilometers. It is the location of the China National Geodetic Origin.
Jinghe New City is to be developed by strictly following the modern garden city construction concept, which means it will be supported by key sections, connected by fast transport, embellished by picturesque towns and have a background of urban agriculture.
The new city is striving to be the center of north Xi’an by using innovative urban development methods, focusing on modern services industries with new energy, new materials and hi-end equipment manufacturing in the lead, while developing modern agriculture to realize integration of the primary, secondary and tertiary industries.
Jinghe New City has mapped out six key sections in accordance with a development model guided by government, led by industry and driven by non-governmental investment and market-driven operations. Each of the six sections, including a new energy and new materials manufacturing industrial park, modern agriculture demonstration zone and FC1 modern garden city demonstration area, is guided by its own leading projects and will develop in an integrated and clustered way, aiming to provide services for city development and support for modern garden city construction.
Based on the national modern agriculture demonstration zone and national agricultural science and technology park concepts, Jinghe New City is prioritizing national urban-rural coordinated construction and striving to be a new type of urbanization model with completed infrastructure and comprehensive public services.
