 Behind the Abolition of Sale Restrictions in Heze, Shandong Province: Faced with a Serious Population Outflow Problem

On the evening of December 18, the Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Bureau of Heze City, Shandong Province, issued the Notice on Promoting the Reform of Shantytowns and Promoting the Steady and Healthy Development of the Real Estate Market (Hejian [2018] No. 7), notifying that restrictive measures on the transfer of newly purchased housing should be abolished. The document also made Heze stand on the cusp of public opinion for a time, known as the first city to lift the restrictions on the sale of the first gun in the whole country.

In response, the Shandong Provincial Housing and Construction Department said that the document was not reported in the provincial department.

On December 19, Heze made a clear statement on the relevant policies to cancel the existing restrictions on sales. Heze Housing and Construction Bureau said that in November 2017, after the introduction of the relevant provisions on the period of restricting new purchase and transfer of second-hand housing in Heze, many citizens who are ready to purchase stock housing, especially those who are compensated by monetization of shanty reform, are unable to purchase suitable stock housing because they cannot transfer their families. It is urgent to demand the cancellation of the restrictions on transfer deadlines. After careful investigation and evaluation, the Heze Housing and Construction Bureau decided to abolish the existing restrictions on new purchase and transfer of second-hand housing.

Pengbo News found that in recent years Heze City is working to solve the serious problem of population outflow.

According to the statistics of Shandong Province, in 2016, there were 152,000 people going out in Heze. In that year, Heze had a total resident population of 8.626 million and a household registration population of 10.1457 million, accounting for 15% of the total population.

Heze is a major labor export city in Shandong Province. At one time, 1.6 million people worked outside for many years. During the Spring Festival of 2016, according to the statistics of mobile, Unicom and telecommunications companies, 1.54 million mobile phone users from other places roamed back to Heze. In the words of Wang Lei, Standing Committee and Executive Vice Mayor of Heze Municipal Committee, The number, scale and assets of enterprises set up by Heze people outside Heze are basically equal to the current economic volume of Heze, that is, there is another Heze besides Heze.

However, Heze City has targeted to address this problem. In recent years, Heze Peoples Social Bureau has vigorously implemented the action of returning to the wild goose and rejuvenating Heze, and made every effort to promote the return of capital, industry and talent.

On December 19, 2018, Heze Peoples Social Bureau said that 157,000 people in the city have returned home to start their own businesses, and 58,000 founding entities have been set up, which has led to 450,000 employment. Heze held six centralized signing ceremonies for returning business projects, with 65 signing projects and a total investment of 38.4 billion yuan.

At the end of 2017, the permanent population of Heze reached 8.736 million, an increase of 113,400 over the previous year, an increase of 13.2, ranking the first in Shandong Province, and the number of people going out decreased from 1.52 million in 2016 to 1.45 million in 2017.
