“三沿”地区开放 Opening-up of seashore, river shore and border areas
[ 2009-08-25 17:24 ]
A policy to open the areas along the coast, along the major inland rivers and those on the country's borderline to foreign investors and stimulate the economic development with their geographic advantages. Since China launched the opening-up policy in the late 1970s, it chose four cities in southeast coastal areas and established special economic zones as a pilot program. In 1984, 14 port cities along the coastline were opened to foreign investors and businesses. The Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta were opened up in 1985. And four cities on the country's northern borderline followed suit in 1990.
Based on the experiences from the special economic zones, this policy is an important step in spreading the opening-up strategy across the country.
