Beijing, Nov.11 (People's Daily Online) --The State Council recently approved the implementation of a development plan for coastal areas in northern China's Hebei Province.

The coastal area in Hebei province covers a land area of 35,700 square kilometers, 487 kilometers of coastline and 7,000 square kilometers of sea area.

According to the development plan, Hebei plans to make this area a new industry base, which is quite important to facilitate the transfer of industry out of Beijng and Tianjin.

The plan also specifies the short-term and long-term goal: to build this area into a new emerging economic development area around the perimeter of Bohai Bay in 2015 and a national economic area with strong comprehensive strength by 2020.
