China's State Council, the cabinet, has approved the merger of the Shanghai Pudong New District with the neighboring Nanhui district, the Shanghai municipal government said Wednesday.

The expanded Pudong New district will spread 1,210.41 square kilometers with 2.686 million registered residents, said Chen Qiwei, a spokesman for the municipal government.

The Pudong New District was established in 1990. It is where Shanghai's most financial institutions are located.

China is striving to build Shanghai into a major international financial center and shipping hub.
