New Development for Central and Western China(中国中西部的开发)
New Development for Central and Western China
The Chinese government has recently decided to develop central and western China.
This part of China includes nine provinces and autonomous regions, and one municipality. It covers an area of S. 4 million square kilometers with a population of 2.85 hundred million.
The government will pay special attention to its transportation. Some highways and railways will be built. In order to protect the nature, farmers will let farmland revert to forest. Also, measures should be taken to prevent pollution. Western China is rich in natural resources, which can be exploited and made full use of. To meet the need of development, all kinds of experts and skilled workers are to be brought in. As the result of the great project, we believe that central and western regions of China will surely achieve better and faster development in the new century.
