Making More GDP in Beijing

Capital Said to Plan Moving Gov't Agencies to Outskirts
Huang Yan, director of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning, told state media on July 14 that the move would also encourage people to move to the Tongzhou District from the more crowded Dongcheng, Xicheng and Chaoyang districts.
