Two prefecture-level cities, similar to brothers in China, city centers are only 20 kilometers apart, basically reaching urbanization.
We often talk about urbanization. In today's rapid development, regional differences and differences are narrowing, political, economic and cultural exchanges between cities are increasing, common development, complementary advantages, learning from each other, building on each other, improving urban functions, and building more livable cities.
As difference between two cities gets smaller and smaller, it becomes "the same city". However, do you know how similar two cities are in same city?
The charm of humanistic feelings between them and enchanting landscape make people yearn for it. The spirit of perseverance and success of people in Guangzhou and Foshan is admirable.
Today, I will introduce you to charm of Guangzhou and Foshan, two prefecture-level cities that are like brothers in our country.
First: conditions for formation of Guangzhou-Foshan urbanization
The "Guangfo effect" formed by Guangzhou and Foshan is mainly related to geographic location, economic base, convenient transportation, humanistic feelings and cultural base.
The difference between Guangzhou and Foshan city centers is only twenty kilometers. Some areas are directly connected without suburban buffers. Compared to other cities, degree of urbanization is much higher. Separate you and me.
The unique geographic advantages allow two cities to exchange information frequently, and residents of two cities can visit each other frequently without worrying about geographic distance from each other.
The economic foundations of Guangzhou and Foshan are not much different. GDP, oversized industries, market investment, and government revenue and spending of the two cities are growing faster.
The distance between Guangzhou and Foshan is relatively short, and transportation is more convenient. You don't even need to travel between two cities by high-speed rail. You can go directly from Foshan to Guangzhou on Line 2 of Foshan Metro, and from Guangzhou to Foshan you can go directly on Line 2 on Line 2 of Guangzhou Metro.
As they say "If you want to get rich, build roads first", convenience of road conditions is a "catalyst" for better development of two cities. Convenient transportation in Foshan, Guangdong has also led to emergence of "migratory bird tribes", because housing prices in Guangzhou are more expensive than in Foshan, and wages are higher than in Foshan, so most of young people work in Guangzhou and buy houses in Foshan, becoming "tribes of migratory birds".
Humanistic sentiments are relatively strong in Foshan and Guangzhou, and folk customs of two places are relatively similar. Whether you are a local or a foreigner, you have a sense of belonging and identity between two cities, and at junction of two cities you hardly notice when you walk from one city to another.
Guangzhou and Foshan have similar cultural backgrounds, many famous scenic spots and developed tourism. With recent easing of epidemic, this could bring a lot of income to tourism industry in Guangzhou and Foshan.
Second: Integration of Guangzhou and Foshan
Guangzhou and Foshan are basically integrated into same city in terms of support for public policy, inter-city subway service, and more coordinated industrial development.
In order to make it more convenient for people from two cities to work, Foshan and Guangzhou have established an inter-city work system, and people can choose any city to do business, which greatly improves convenience. The governments of these two places are also actively promoting basic integration of Guangzhou and Foshan, vigorously promoting rapid development of these two places, and aiming to achieve integration of two cities by 2035.
The Cross-City Metro in Foshan, Guangzhou, has played an important role in realizing integration of two cities. The Guangzhou-Foshan metro line has been fully opened, and average daily ridership is first metro in China, which not only makes everyone admire inclusiveness of our cities, but also has a forward-thinking development strategy.
The opening of intercity subway not only brings exchanges between two places closer, but also promotes development of related industries, so that two places can develop in a healthy way.
Industrial development in Foshan, Guangzhou, more coordinated. The industrial scale of two cities is large, and total value of production exceeds 100 million. The production value of light industry cannot be underestimated. Guangzhou has implemented dozens of projects in Foshan, two cities have reached each other and used their advantages to better solve problems of people's lives, such as employment and earnings difficulties, and greatly promote healthy development of economy of two places.
Guangzhou and Foshan can basically complete integration of same city, and convenient transportation, national policy support and economic foundation are inseparable. Against backdrop of rapid economic development in new era, two cities have healthy competition and mutual success. From here and there, we will achieve greater goals and achieve greater development together. Such a healthy development model can be actively used for reference.
Against backdrop of unpredictable economic development, it is not easy to achieve quality development in Foshan and Guangzhou. The hard-won success is result of hard work of generations of people two places behind.
If you want to succeed, you can't go it alone and build a car behind closed doors. The seclusion of Qing Dynasty taught us a painful lesson. These two places need to communicate and evolve in order to create more value.
