The authorities of Beijing in the next five years will strengthen measures to curb the growth of the population of the Chinese capital

The Government of Beijing plans in the next five years to intensify efforts to curb the growth of the population living in the city within 23 million people

The authorities of Beijing in the next five years will strengthen measures to curb the growth of the population of the Chinese capital
The task is to reduce the population of the six central districts of Beijing by approximately 15 percent compared to the 2014 indicator of the year.

Such figures, announced in the framework of the sessions of the People's Representatives' Assembly and the People's Political Consultative Council of the city that take place in Beijing these days, are the "ceiling" for the optimal functioning of the metropolis, taking into account the available water and other resources. In particular, by the end of this year the resident population of Beijing should not exceed 22 million people.

In recent years, due to the redistribution of functions and the relocation of industries from the capital, the growth rate of the population of Beijing has slowed, but the problem still remains quite serious. Beijing, which has concentrated economic, cultural, educational, medical and other resources, continues to attract people from all over the country, reports Xinhua news agency.

The continuing rapid growth of the population of Beijing is constantly increasing the burden on the city's resources, entailing adverse consequences for the environment, problems in the transport sector and is currently the most important factor in restraining the development of the city.

The Beijing authorities have repeatedly installed a “red line” for the growth of the city’s population, but each time this feature was exceeded. So, in 2004, the goal was set to contain the population by 2020 within 18 million people, but by the end of 2009, the population of the capital reached 18,6 million people.

In addition, thanks to the new reform of the propiska system in Beijing, visitors will have even more opportunities to settle in the capital. Therefore, the city authorities need to find a balance between curbing population growth and relief in the propiska system, as well as ensure the development of the city, taking into account the demographic situation.

The head of the Beijing Committee for Reform and Development Lu Yan said that the city authorities will stimulate the resettlement of people from densely populated central regions to new areas, urban settlements and nearby settlements, and monitor population growth by optimizing the location of enterprises.

In 2016, Beijing is planning to “evict” 300 of ordinary and polluting enterprises from Beijing. Also over the next five years within 4-th the ring road will remove the regional logistics bases and specialized markets. In addition, this year it is planned to demolish illegal buildings with a total area of ​​15 million square meters. m

According to Mayor of Beijing Wang Anshun, this year Beijing will accelerate the construction of an administrative sub-center in the Tongzhou area, which already in 2017 moves part of the metropolitan administrative departments, which, like the coordinated development strategy of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, will facilitate the relocation Population from a densely populated center to the periphery.
