Regional Scope

In accordance with the requirements for enhancing its capacity, improving its functions and optimizing its layout, the Hongqiao International Open Hub coordinates with the region's development space and forms a development pattern of "One Core and Two Belts".

"One core" means the Shanghai Hongqiao International CBD, which covers an area of 151 square kilometers. It mainly undertakes the functions of an international central business district, is a new platform for the new international trade center and is a comprehensive transit hub.

The "two belts" are the northward expansion belt and the southward expansion belt, which extend from the Hongqiao CBD as the starting point.

The northward expansion belt includes Hongqiao, Changning, Jiading, Kunshan, Taicang, Xiangcheng and the Suzhou Industrial Park. It focuses on building a central business cooperation zone, an international trade coordinated development zone and a comprehensive transit hub functional extension zone.

The southward expansion belt includes Hongqiao, Minhang, Songjiang, Jinshan, Pinghu, Nanhu, Haiyan and Haining. It focuses on building a culturally distinctive and tourist functional international business district, a digital trade innovation development zone and a new platform for the combined transportation of river, sea, air and rail.
