Xiangjiang New Area, established in 2015, covers 490 square km in Changsha, Central China's Hunan province. Situated on the west bank of the Xiang River, Xiangjiang New Area is Central China's new economic growth base for creative industries, high-tech manufacturing and innovation. It also serves as an example of how urban and rural planning can be integrated, local authorities said.

According to a plan released by the National Development and Reform Commission, by 2025, the Xiangjiang New Area will realize an urbanization rate of 80 percent and will be home to industries such as modern services, advanced manufacturing, ecological tourism and modern agriculture by working with other regional governments and companies.
