This year, the New District has attached equal importance to pandemic prevention and control and economic growth. To this end, Dapeng is seizing the great historic opportunities available in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and utilizing Shenzhen's status as a pilot model that demonstrates best practices for socialism with Chinese characteristics.

To date Dapeng has held two events to kickstart a total of 100 major projects with an investment of 23 billion yuan. In August, Dapeng added another seven projects including the affordable housing project, the Hongdouwan residential compound, to the list of major projects for 2020. These projects have brought a cumulative number of fixed investment worth of 618 million yuan.
Additionally, to better serve and ensure smooth construction of these projects, Dapeng has formed a coordination mechanism to offer targeted services and overcome the impact of COVID-19. As a result, 13 of the 50 major projects under construction have realized their annual goals ahead of schedule, accounting for 26 percent of the total.
The Development and Finance Bureau is following closely the progress and updates of the projects and is submitting a list of updates and problems each month. Thanks to their effort, rail transport made major breakthroughs with construction plans of the phase 3 of Metro Line 8 and the Shenzhen-Huizhou Intercity Railway getting approvals from the National Development and Reform Commission.
