Beijing wholesale market relocated to neighboring province

A morning wholesale market, with nearly 2,000 businesses relocated from urban Beijing, opened in north China's Hebei Province Wednesday.

The 35,000-square-meter clothing wholesale market, part of the Mingzhu International Trade Center in the city of Cangzhou, is open from 7 a.m. to noon, said Yang Chongrong, general manager of the center.

All the tenants came from the morning market in Dahongmen, Beijing's Fengtai District, which has been closed, said Yang.

Beijing plans to cap its population at 23 million by 2020 to address "big city diseases," including traffic congestion and pollution.

To meet the target, Beijing has taken measures to move non-capital functions away from the city including relocating wholesale markets.

Dahongmen, once a renowned wholesale market, was one of those that were closed. More than 8,000 tenants from the area have moved to Cangzhou, some 250 km from Beijing, according to local authorities.
