Govt aims to transform Zhenjiang into model city, paper says

Zhenjiang, in eastern China’s Jiangsu province, has been designated as a testing ground for the government’s plan to build a new model city that can be economically successful, environment-friendly and good for public health at the same time, China Daily reported on Tuesday. Plans include a streetcar network for mainstream transportation and large natural areas for ecological diversity in a city measuring 20 square kilometers and housing about a million residents, the report said. About 65 percent of Zhenjiang’s land area will be preserved as farmland as well as water and greenbelt areas, it added.
