A. Project Name
International Competition on conceptual master plan and special plan of Dawang New Energy Automobile Industry City
B. Project Background
In order to thoroughly carry out the thought of Chinese national ecological civilization, implement the “14th Five-Year Plan” and Guangdong – Hong Kong – Macao Greater Bay Area development plan and coordinate the allocation of various resources and factors, Zhaoqing actively responds to the new land spatial plan. Zhaoqing supplements the regional land space development protection system, coordinates the construction of important node cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and finally builds a model city for conservation construction in the new era. The masterplan of Zhaoqing’s land spatial plan clearly established a general framework of “One belt, One corridor, One district”in the city； taking the Zhaoqing New District and Duanzhou District as engines, linking the Dinghu district, the Gaoyao District district and the Sihui district. Zhaoqing vigorously develop the urban economy and the happiness industry, accelerate the construction of the happiness industry (urban economic industry) agglomeration zone, to create a high-quality new city and a Leisure and Tourism destination. Zhaoqing will optimize the spatial structure of the central urban area, focus on Zhaoqing high-tech zone, Xi River high-tech South Zone, Jinli high-tech zone, Sihui industrial park, airport economic zone, north-south construction of Xi River advanced manufacturing corridor.
Zhaoqing High-tech zone actively deploys new energy industry projects, promotes new energy automobile industry clusters which processed core competitiveness and characteristic advantages to be the vanguard, to build up a world-class new energy industry highland, supporting the “14th Five-Year Plan” and the development of emerging industries strategic of the Guangdong – Hong Kong – Macao Greater Bay Area. According to the new concept of the overall requirements of integrating high-quality development, making overall plans for Land and resources, implementing “Planning, construction and management”, and promoting common progress, production, life and ecology into the overall demands, Zhaoqing complies to the core idea of ‘no Scheming no planning, no planning no design, no Design no Practicing’, promotes the construction of Dawang New Energy Vehicles Industry City in High-tech zone. Drawing on the experience of Xiongan and the advanced regions, we will launch an international competition for the preparation of the conceptual master plan and the special plan of Dawang New Energy Vehicles Industry City, and invite design institutions with rich relevant design experience at home and abroad, we will pool our wisdom and wisdom together to create a high-level conceptual master plan and special plans for green energy, green buildings, intelligent transportation, and municipal infrastructure, helping Zhaoqing build a world-class new energy industry.
