More than 20 regions seek to copy Shanghai FTZ model, paper says

More than 20 regions and cities across China have plans to establish or strengthen cooperation with a free trade zone (FTZ) as their top priority this year, China Business News reported Friday, citing statements published during the second session of the 12th National People’s Congress. Shanghai FTZ has the responsibility to share its experience and make the model replicable in other areas, Xu Shaoshi {徐紹史}, head of the National Development and Reform Commission, was quoted as saying. The applicants include the southwestern city of Chongqing, Chengdu, Zhengzhou in central China, and the coastal cities of Tianjin and Zhoushan, among others, the report said.
