   Changsha City in Hunan Province on Sunday established central China's first "state-level new area" to try out economic and administrative reform measures.

  Xiangjiang New Area, which was given the greenlight by the central government in April, sits on the west bank of the Xiangjiang River and covers 490 square kilometers across several districts in Changsha.

  It will pilot ten major reform measures in areas including government administration, economics, environmental protection and rural-urban integration, according to the Changsha City government.

  It will be China's 12th state-level new area since one in Pudong, Shanghai, was launched in 1992. That was followed by others in cities and provinces including Tianjin, Chongqing, Zhejiang, Gansu and Guangdong.

  China uses these areas to test reforms, pilot opening-up policies and test other measures.

  A statement by the central government said it wanted to build the Xiangjiang New Area into a high-tech manufacturing and innovation base to aid the development of central China and the Yangtze economic belt.

  湘江新区是全国第12个、中部第1个国家级新区。根据国务院批复,湘江新区将努力建设“三区一高地”:即高端制造研发转化基地和创新创意产业集聚区,产城融合、城乡一体的新型城镇化示范区,全国两型社会建设引领区,长江经济带内陆开放高地。

  徐守盛指出,湘江新区的获批设立,是党中央、国务院着眼国家区域发展全局作出的重大战略决策,是湖南新一轮改革发展面临的又一重大历史机遇。这一重大战略的实施,对深入贯彻落实习近平总书记对湖南作出的“一带一部”战略新定位,促进湖南更好更快融入长江中游地区经济社会发展,打造中部崛起和长江经济带建设的新增长极,具有重大而深远的意义。我们要站在战略和全局的高度,切实增强责任感、使命感和紧迫感,用只争朝夕、争创一流的实际行动,真正把湘江新区规划好、建设好、发展好,不辜负党中央、国务院的重托,不辜负全省人民的期望。
