87 Beijing companies promise investment

Dozens of companies from Beijing signed agreements with Hebei province on Friday, pledging a total investment of more than 1.6 trillion yuan ($257.8 billion).

The signing took place in Baoding, southwest of Beijing.

"The State-owned companies can bring Hebei capital, technology and personnel, which can help the province accelerate its process of industrial upgrading and air pollution control," Hebei Deputy Governor Yang Chongyong said.

"The costs of land and personnel are expensive in Beijing, while cities in Hebei such as Baoding are a good place to invest because they can provide a favorable environment at a low cost," he said.

Sun said his company will build an industrial park in Baoding with an area of about 70 hectares.
