Beijing has listed 90 tasks for promoting the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region this year, according to officials from Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform.

Thirty-six of the tasks, or 40%, focus on ecology, transportation, industrial development, and public services.

In terms of transportation, construction of the Beijing-Xiongan Highway will start this year, the Beijing-Xiongan Intercity Railway (Beijing West Railway Station to the New Airport Station) will be put to use by the end of this year, and the Beijing-Zhangjiakou Railway will open to traffic by the end of this year.

In terms of ecology, Beijing is aiming to plant around 466.67 hectares of trees and grass in its sub-center this year, and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region is planning to work together to control air pollution and implement the second three-year action plan for sewage treatment.

Tongzhou district, where Beijing's sub-center is located, is tasked with increasing coordination with the three adjacent counties of Langfang, Hebei province, in transportation, industrial development, education, and medical services. Beijing plans to support the three counties in building high-quality hospitals through telemedicine, hospital alliance, specialist alliance, and technical cooperation.

Covering 19 tasks, the construction of Xiongan New Area and Beijing's sub-center remains one of the focuses of the regional coordinated development.

This year, Beijing plans to support the construction of three schools and a hospital in Xiongan, with construction to start in the second half of the year. The city also plans to offer training to four schools in Xiongan and provide assistance to five medical organizations there.

In addition, 14 out of the 90 tasks are about relocating non-capital functions.

Specifically, the city plans to close down 309 manufacturing companies, and relocate 50 markets, 16 logistics centers, as well as some universities and hospitals.

According to Zhou Hao, a department head of Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform, the space vacated from relocation efforts will be used for strengthening capital functions and improving people's wellbeing.

There are also five tasks looking to improve mechanisms of coordination, and 16 aiming to deepen reform and promote innovation in the coordinated development. Concerning collaborative innovation, Beijing is tasked with promoting its high-end industries, spreading their influences to Tianjin and Hebei, and accelerating the application of innovative products in the region.
