The 7,000 km2 'Hongqiao International Open Hub' will consist of a global business area, international trade centers and will serve as a major transportation and distribution hub.

Scheduled to complete at 2035, the hub is set to elevate the opening up of China for foreign companies, people, and investment by creating new roadmaps, infrastructure and conditions to support the integration of global business and people.
