Survey: Chengguan remain unpopular
23 April 2014
China Daily

The public's degree of satisfaction with urban management, known as chengguan, remains low in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, this year, a recent survey indicates.

The survey, whose results were released on Tuesday, was conducted by Guangzhou-based Canton Public Opinion Research Center, which interviewed 1,000 residents aged 16 or above in March.

The findings showed that only 28 percent of the public were satisfied with chengguan's law enforcement this year, up slightly from 2013's 27 percent.

Meanwhile, local residents' dissatisfaction with chengguan's enforcement against unauthorized buildings grew to 39 percent.

The degree of public satisfaction on chengguan's handling of illegal roadside stall businesses continued to slide. Public approval stands at less than 20 percent this year, according to the survey.

Many unauthorized construction projects have remained intact for more than a dozen years, and chengguan seem to have no idea, respondents said. At the same time, 67 percent of local residents think stalls that illegally occupy streets and roads for business have become a normal phenomenon in the southern metropolis, the survey found.

Public satisfaction with law enforcement by the police with respect to security reached 50 percent, while satisfaction with traffic enforcement reached 45 percent, the survey said.

Zhang Yiri, an associate professor from Guangzhou City Polytechnic, said he was not surprised that the public's low degree of satisfaction with chengguan because they mainly deal with the city's large disadvantaged groups, including street vendors and other low-income people.

"People usually sympathize with the disadvantaged groups when conflicts occur between chengguan and street vendors and other low-income persons," Zhang said.

At the same time, chengguan have less effective and concrete measures with which to handle lawbreaking activities as compared with police officers, he said.

Zhang said that government departments should educate locals about the law to raise awareness, while chengguan should try its best to improve its enforcement approaches.

Chen Hongwen, a Guangzhou white-collar worker, said the survey indicates chengguan's law enforcement still needs much improvement.

"Chengguan should introduce more people-oriented measures while enforcing the laws," Chen said.

The above system and poll results are related to local construction in Guangzhou specifically, although civic unrest to various urban redevelopment practices have arisen in other cities lately. Guess the issue in Guangzhou is more acute as it is the largest city in the south.

Guangzhou aims to be the heart of revived trade route
21 June 2014
China Daily

Guangzhou was an important harbor city on the ancient Maritime Silk Road for more than two thousand years and is now striving to be a leader and bridgehead in the nation's 21st century version of the route.

The capital of South China's Guangdong province aims to be the main traffic pivot, free trade harbor and hub for foreign communications in the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road in three to five years. The city hopes the revived route will be an engine to drive economic growth, according to a senior official.

The city plans to forge closer ties with regions along the route including ASEAN countries, those in the Middle East and Africa, said Guangzhou Mayor Chen Jianhua during a recent media briefing in Guangzhou.

"We view the new Maritime Silk Road as a road of economy and trade, of cultural exchanges and of peace and friendship," he said. "Guangzhou will review the city's development in the perspective of the world, in light of the strategic thinking of the world and with an open mind."

According to the mayor, the city will encourage and support local businesses to set up commodities exhibition and sales centers in countries and regions along the route. He said the city would also support local enterprises to set up zones for trade and economic co-operations and industrial parks in Southeast Asia, South Asia and Africa.

The city plans to help local firms involve more projects related to express railway construction and canal development and management.

The mayor said the prospect of trade and economic co-operation between Guangzhou and the regions along the road would be promising. He said his optimistic view was based on Guangzhou's position as an important international commerce and trade hub and the mutually complementary economic status.

Guangzhou enjoys advantages in the industrial development of automobiles, electronics, bio-medicine, fine chemicals, mechanical equipment, light industry and modern services.

The city is capable of providing these cost-effective products and services to other regions, while the latter can supply products related to energy and resources to Guangzhou, he explained.

Official statistics indicated that ASEAN countries were Guangzhou's third biggest trade partner in 2013, when trade volume reached US$14.18 billion, or 11.9 percent of the city's total.

Both the Middle East and Africa have become increasingly important growth trade markets for Guangzhou.

The city's exports to the Middle East were worth US$3.81 billion in 2013, up 21.5 percent from the previous year. Exports to Africa were worth US$3.13 billion, up 16.7 percent.

Local business people invested US$860 million in 66 operations in ASEAN countries and US$260 million in 38 operations in Africa by late April.

Rents of Guangzhou's Grade A office buildings dip 0.4 pct q-o-q in Q2

GUANGZHOU, July 16 (Xinhua) – Rents of Guangzhou's Grade A office buildings reached 156.7 yuan per square meter each month in the second quarter of this year, felling 0.4 percent quarter on quarter, and capital value of Grade A office buildings posted first drop of the price since the second quarter of 2009, according to a report released by Jones Lang LaSelle on Wednesday.

The commercial real estate services provider predicts the city's average rents of Grade A office buildings will continue to post slight decline in the second half of this year.

Ma Weitu, director of commercial real estate department of Jones Lang LaSelle in Guangzhou, says that Grade A office buildings expected to complete construction in two years have initiate pre-rent activities, forcing existing Grade A office building to add promotion to prevent loss of tenants.

Capital value of Grade A office buildings fell 0.3 percent quarter on quarter to 37,400 yuan per square meter each month in the second quarter.

Zeng Li, senior manager of Jones Lang LaSelle's research department in south China, attributes the drop of capital value to private investors' cautious attitude on office building investment due to slowdown of economic growth, and some potential buyers for self-use chose to rent office buildings on rent decline.

Ma predicts multinational companies' inquiry on Grade A office buildings will decline in the future due to slowdown of China's economic growth.

Guangzhou widens protection list
15 July 2014
China Daily


More historical buildings and scenic areas are included in the protection plan in Guangzhou, Guangdong province. The city will also set up a special fund of 60 million yuan ($9.6 million) to preserve its cultural relics. Among the buildings to be protected are (clockwise from top left) the Nanye Ancestral Temple, Donghu Lock, a warehouse in Huaqiao Sugar Refinery and an old office buidling in Jinan University. Provided to China Daily

Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, has added 80 sites to its protection plan for historical buildings and scenic areas.

Experts said the inclusion will help to further preserve the traditions of a city with a history of more than 2,200 years that has been undergoing increasing urbanization.

City authorities approved the listing of the 80 sites on Tuesday. Taking into account a list approved in December, there are now 478 historical buildings under the protection plan.

The historical buildings in the December list are concentrated in the city's three old districts, while the locations in the new list cover all 11 of its districts.

The newly included sites mainly supplement Guangzhou's catalogue of historical buildings with cultural heritage, such as traditional dwellings, ancestral halls, industrial heritage items such as abandoned factories in the city's former suburbs as well as structures like bridges and wells.

Guangzhou Mayor Chen Jianhua said on Tuesday that the second list of historical buildings covers an unprecedented vast region of both urban and suburban areas that enriches Guangzhou as a historical and cultural city.

The current city government values the protection of historical buildings "as never before", with the mayor stressing that the government will be more devoted to protection efforts to leave a rich cultural heritage for future generations, according to a statement from the Guangzhou Urban Planning Bureau.

The city's protection plan of historical buildings and scenic areas was approved in November and implemented from February. The plan is detailed in its protection stipulations of historical buildings, such as maintenance for facades and restrictions on new construction within a certain area around the buildings.

But the protection of historical buildings is more than just about maintaining the architecture, said Professor Wang Yuanlin from the Guangzhou-based Jinan University's history department.

"It is equally important to preserve and revive the traditional customs inherent within the historical buildings," Wang said on Wednesday.

"Many ancestral halls, where worship ceremonies and villagers' group meetings took place, are now empty shells because young people have left their homes to live in urban areas and did not inherit the traditions."

Wang said the country's rapid urbanization has caused ancient villages to disappear every day in China. But he also said that the old can coexist with the new, citing the remodeled Liede Village to the south of the city's new CBD Zhujiang New Town as an example.

Although the area's shabby, crowded houses were torn down to make way for modern apartment buildings, the developers kept the Longmu Temple and rebuilt around the ancestral halls and representative traditional houses. A museum was also built to display the village's history and filled with historical items such as an old dragon boat's bow.

Jinan University's aging office building was included in the new list of historical buildings as a representation of the city's educational buildings during the period from 1912 to 1949. The building has been given a new lease on life as home to the university's art faculty.

"Graduates from Jinan University love taking photos in front of the old office building when they revisit the campus. So we are preserving students' precious memories in preserving the building," Wang said.

"Similarly, it is important to protect Guangzhou's historical buildings as a way to preserve local people's precious memories. It is wise for the government to protect these buildings with laws and regulations."

He Baoqi contributed to this story.

Guangzhou charts plan to become international shipping hub
9 February 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province, will develop its Nansha district, a newly-approved free trade zone in the heart of the Pearl River Delta, into an international shipping and logistics center to help expand its economy, said Chen Jianhua, mayor of the city, on Friday.

"We have an ancient port with a history of more than 1,000 years in Nansha, and this will come in handy for the development of the free trade zone," said Chen.

According to Chen, construction of the third phase of the Guangzhou port, which currently has a handling capacity of 10 million twenty-foot equivalent unit, will be completed soon.

When construction of the fourth phase, which will begin this year, is completed, the port will have a handling capacity of 26 million TEUs, making it one of the world's top five ports in terms of handling capacity, according to Chen.

"Nansha, in the southernmost part of the Pearl River, which also faces Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions, also has advantages in terms of development of shipping services," Chen said.

At a news conference following the local people's congress annual session, which concluded on Friday, Chen said enhanced shipping and logistics services would help facilitate development of the free trade zone.

The Nansha free trade zone is part of the Guangdong Free Trade Zone, which also includes Hengqin in Zhuhai and Qianhai in Shenzhen. The zone was approved by the central government at the end of last year.

"We will also push up development of infrastructure, including an airport, expressways, subways and railways to build closer links between the zone and the downtown area and neighboring cities," Chen said.

The city will also pump in investments of about 1 billion yuan ($160.1 million) to build a commercial airport in Nansha.

A railway linking Nansha with the Pearl River Delta cities of Zhongshan, Foshan and Jiangmen, a tunnel between Hong Kong and Zhongshan and a high-speed subway that connects with the downtown area of Guangzhou will be built in the free trade zone, according to Chen.

Economic growth corridor to mark the start of a new era
27 February 2015
China Daily Excerpt



High-speed railway gets southwestern province on track, Yang Jun and Zhao Kai report.

Traveling from Guiyang, the capital of Southwest China's mountainous Guizhou province, to Guangzhou used to involve a 20-hour train ride.

However, the situation changed dramatically as the province became the newest member of China's high-speed railway family.

After six years of construction, the Guiyang-Guangzhou high-speed railway started running on Dec 26, 2014.

The route is the first highspeed railway to connect the southwest area to other regions and is expected to bring the poverty-stricken province into a new era.

The railway shortens travel time from Guiyang to Guangzhou from 20 hours to about five hours.

Zhang Jianbo, chairman of Guiyang-Guangzhou Railway Co Ltd, said the new line was much straighter than the old one so was shortened to 857 kilometers.

"The majority of Guizhou's geographical landscape is karst landscape. There are no flatlands but only mountains and hills, which brought many challenges to the construction process," he added.

In recent years, Guizhou has strived to strengthen cooperation and joint development with nearby regions and the railway is expected to bring more opportunities for this.

"We must take the opportunities from the rapid development of transportation and help more Guizhou people leave the mountainous areas to work and travel to the outside world," said Zhao Kezhi, the Party chief of Guizhou, during the provincial economic working conference in December.

Great - together with the other existing CBD and International Financial City on the other side of the river this will create a world-class skyline for Guangzhou. Now they only need to redevelop these nasty urban villages in between.

^those urban villages are amazing - there are already calls to preserve them, and their famed pedestrianised streetlife. They're basically 'informal architecture' but without the horrors of shanty towns (crime, sanitation). They are by far the most interesting places to wander if visiting within modern Chinese cities:

many are being cleaned up

However most of them are being knocked down with the march of the new. Places like Shenzhen has a lifespan averaging ten years for its buildings. ^The picture above a year later:

In the Pazhou A section , there is no urban village, it is easy to develop the highrise building projects by the property developers. Also, 80% of the land had been sold.
