A cluster of clothing wholesale markets in Beijing will move to the capital's southern neighbor, Baoding in Hebei province, according to a contract signed on Thursday.
In addition to the clothing industry in Dahongmen, in the Fengtai district of Beijing, relevant services such as warehousing and wholesaling will also relocate to Baigou, a district in Baoding.
The relocation is a major step for the capital to move non-core functions to surrounding areas and for Baoding to enhance its strength in clothing and bags.
To prepare for the relocation, expressways directly linking the two areas will be broadened and a new rapid railway is planned to connect Baigou and a new airport that is under construction in Beijing.
