commercial city, its convenient transport system in South China, and
its support from the manufacturing industry in the PRD region. To
reposition this first-tier city in China, the government looks to build a
world trade center with rich culture and tourism resources.

"Twelfth Five-year Plan,") the government plans to input 20 billion RMB
to support the city's portal industries including finance, insurance,
trade fair, modern logistics, creation, information, auto, petrol and
chemistry, biology and new materials. Areas will also be planned for
different functions to serve different industries. For example, three
national-level Development Zones are positioned to boost logistics and
modern services, Nansha district for biology and Bai'E'tan circle in
Fangcun district for creation and tourism.

To lure more high qualified expatriate talents, the government was
advised by the foreign-funded companies to make their needs in medicine,
education, accommodation and recreation. Compared with the nightlife in
Hong Kong, Guangzhou shall learn more from its experience of bar
streets like Lan Kwai Fong, the Hong Kong representatives suggested.
