Universities and hospitals affiliated with ministries, and centrally administered state-owned enterprises in Beijing will start relocation to Xiong'an New Area, North China's Hebei Province this year as part of removing the non-capital function, an official from the leading group for the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region said in an interview with the Xinhua News Agency on Friday.

The official pointed out that they will be moved to Xiong'an in groups and aim to build a batch of demonstration projects over the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) period to set up a foundation for the medium- and long-term tasks, the report said.

According to the report, the authorities will step up institutional innovations in setting up policies, spark their internal initiative of moving out of Beijing, and try to ensure their income is not lower than the amount they used to earn in Beijing.

On Thursday, a regulation about the development of Xiong'an was passed. Formulating systematic rules in eight aspects, including management institution, planning and construction, reform and opening-up as well as environmental protection, the passing of the regulation marks a new chapter for the legal construction of Xiong'an.
