Guangzhou plans to double urban area

Guangzhou plans to double urban area

Guangzhou will open more than 3,500 square kilometres to easier development under a rezoning plan that would nearly double the city's urban area and increase government income.

Guangdong's provincial capital would expand its urban boundaries by making two rural counties under its jurisdiction, Conghua and Zengcheng, full-fledged districts, according the Nanfang Daily, the government's official mouthpiece.

Meanwhile, Luogang district would be absorbed into Huangpu district, leaving the city with 11 districts in all.
