Harbin establishes investment fund for New District
The Harbin city government will allocate 1 billion yuan ($1.45 billion) to a fund for supporting the industrial development of its New District.
The industrial fund will be allocated by Harbin Finance Bureau and will be used in sectors including organic food, new technologies, tourism, new energy and trade.
The fund is aimed at promoting the development of Harbin’s New District, and accelerate economic structural adjustment and industrial transformation.

The New District will be built into a demonstration area for the old industrial base as well as a distinctive international center for culture and tourism in northeast China.
