Guian New Area (贵安新区) is located between Guiyang and Anshun, Southwest China's Guizhou province. The planned area of 1,795 square kilometers covers 20 towns or townships of four counties (or county-level cities or districts) in the two cities.
It will become an exemplary open economic zone in inland China, a major growth pole and an exemplary ecological development zone in West China. It is one of the five new areas developed under China's Western Development Program and the eighth national-level new area in China.
As a core area in the central Guizhou economic zone, the area enjoys distinctive geographical advantages. Plain land fostering a good cultural and ecological environment provides it with enormous potential and capability for accelerating growth.
According to the State Council's Document No. 2 issued in 2012, in order to build a main battlefield for Guizhou to catch up and exceed other regions, the area should become a base for the equipment manufacturing industry featuring aeronautics and astronautics, a major resources deep-processing base, and a regional commercial logistics center and technology innovation center.
On January 6, 2014, the State Council approved the establishment of the national-level Guian New Area.
The area boasts not only a good ecological environment and long history but also a beautiful natural environment with pleasant climate and a forest coverage rate of 42 percent. The ancient Tunpu culture, original indigenous culture with various tourist sites, such as Red Maple Leaf (Hongfeng) Lake, Hundred Flower (Baihua) Lake and Floral Stream (Huaxi) Park, is a great resource for high-end cultural and recreational tourism.
