TIANJIN — North China's Tianjin Municipality has planned to accelerate the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, as the development strategy enters its sixth year of implementation.

Tianjin will facilitate the expansion and relocation of Beijing-based centrally administered SOEs, financial institutions, scientific research institutions, medical establishments, and colleges and universities

Tianjin will play a bigger part in further relieving Beijing of functions nonessential to its role as the nation's capital, Zhang Guoqing, the city mayor, said at the opening of the annual municipal legislative session on Tuesday.
