Mr. Huang said, in 2006, the Chinese Government made an important decision to incorporate Tianjin Binhai New Area in the heart of Bohai Rim into the state overall strategic layout, and determined this area of 2,270km2 to be the national comprehensive supporting reform test area. The Binhai New Area becomes the third pole of Chinese economic development, after Shenzhen Special Economic Region and Shanghai Pudong New Area. The development of opening up of Binhai New Area, as national strategic priority, arouses great attentions from home and abroad, and now enters in a new stage of overall development and construction, with improving comprehensive service function, increasing advantageous industrial scale, enhancing original innovation capacity, growing comprehensive supporting reform, strengthening foreign cooperation and exchange, and increasing eco-environmental quality.

Mr. Huang said, Tianjin is a city with highly foreign-oriented economy, and the Binhai New Area on the frontline of China opening up to outside is heavily impacted by global financial crisis inevitably. Facing such harsh conditions and difficulties, the most important for us to do is build up confidence. The Central Government proposes a “package” plan in response to the crisis, reinforcing our confidence in overcoming such difficulties. Tianjin is committed to improving investment environment, introducing capital projects from home and abroad, strengthening physical economy, using good projects and big projects to transform development mode, optimizing economic structure, enhancing industrial level, and enlarging economic volume; it has implemented the constructions of 560 major projects, which not only support current economic growth, but also reinforces development potential. This is the biggest feature of Tianjin facing financial crisis.

As long as we have confidence, strengthen cooperation, and go ahead hand in hand, the economic condition will recover in the end.
