Xi'an International Trade and Logistics Park is part of the China (Shaanxi) Pilot Free Trade Zone. Founded in 2008 upon the approval from Shaanxi provincial government and Xi'an municipal government, the park is the first inland port of the country, undertaking the tasks of transforming its industrial structure and economic development methods and developing an export-orientated economy and modern service industry.

Enhance transportation and livable environment

Located on the delta of Bahe River and Weihe River, the park guarantees convenient transportation. In northeastern Xi'an, the park is five kilometers away from the urban center and 28 kilometers from Xi'an Xianyang International Airport. It is surrounded by inter-province expressways that link to the cities of Beijing, Kunming, Lianyungang, Baotou and Shanghai. The newly constructed subway lines 3 and 14 help improve regional transportation, in addition to the existing traffic network made up of 45 bus lines.

This year, the park improved the construction of roads and infrastructures around the Xinzhu Railway Logistics Center and the Comprehensive Bonded Zone, as well as sped up the implementation of No.2 Transformer Substation, an energy distribution system and Lugang International Hospital projects in order to establish a complete network of supporting facility. The construction of Xi'an Olympic Sports Center - the main venue for the 14th National Games in 2021 - and the implementation of an ecologic strategy were also launched, which will help the park become a new environmentally-friendly urban center in Xi'an.

Improve urban landscapes

More than 300,000 trees are scheduled to be planted this year to improve the green coverage and beautify urban landscapes.

To improve regional landscapes, park officials employed a professional design team to consult them on how to establish sculptures, create sceneries and arrange roads. Additionally, it will improve transportation infrastructure and add more parking lots, creating 303 spaces in the public parking lot besides the Baoshuiqu subway station. Monitoring equipment was installed along the Gangwu Avenue, which is 5.3 kilometers long and 180 meters wide. An exclusive lane for trucks was also constructed on the road. Hugging both sides of Gangwu Avenue are green belts, approximately 100 meters wide, creating a refreshing burst of nature in the midst of the urban landscape.

Create management mechanism and improve environmental awareness

The park established a long-term management initiative to clean up cigarette butts from roads and public spaces and keep public toilets clean. Themed gatherings and promotion activities were also held regularly to improve people's environmental awareness. Evaluation procedures were established to arouse official's enthusiasm on environmental management. Thanks to these measures, the park has achieved a better environment for living and investment.

As of now, the park has built comprehensive traffic arteries and formed characteristic industry cluster districts. The Midwest Inland Port Financial Town adopted a modern design concept and was built into a contemporary high-end business office area. Emerging industries, such as internet of things, publishing and logistics, have settled in the park and a series of projects including China South City, Internet of Things Industrial Park, New Silk Road Pioneer Park and Baima Wine City were carried out.

Xi'an International Trade and Logistics Park has become a thriving new urban center thanks to its efforts in urban, industrial and ecologic construction.
