It is worth noting that three days ago, on June 19, the Sichuan provincial government just released the official reply of the Sichuan Provincial Peoples government to cancel the establishment of Xinjin District of Chengdu City in Xinjin County. The State Council approved the cancellation of Xinjin County and the establishment of Xinjin District of Chengdu. The former administrative region of Xinjin County is the administrative region of Xinjin District of Chengdu. Xinjin County is located in the west of Sichuan Basin and the south of Chengdu, with a regional area of 330 square kilometers and a permanent population of 370000. In 2019, the total regional GDP will be 37.47 billion yuan.
Generally speaking, the withdrawal of counties into districts refers to the transformation of counties under the jurisdiction of municipalities directly under the central government or prefecture level cities into municipal districts, which is often the inevitable result of a certain degree of regional economic development. In addition to the change of administrative power, after the transformation of counties and cities into districts, population and economic indicators will be included in the statistical scope of urban areas.
For many years, the adjustment of county administrative divisions, especially the withdrawal of counties and cities, is becoming an important way to promote urbanization.
Taking Sichuan Province as an example, since 2012, it has been approved by the State Council for 17 county-level administrative division adjustments, which is the most approved province by the State Council. According to the 21st century economic report, there are four adjustment matters related to Chengdu: one is to change the agency relationship (Jianyang is to be replaced by Chengdu), and three are to be removed from the county (Shuangliu District, Pidu district and Xinjin District of Chengdu).
It should be noted that in recent years, the increase of registered population in many cities also comes from the consolidation of administrative regions. In 2016, Jianyang City, with a registered population of 1.5 million, was entrusted to Chengdu for custody. In that year, the registered population of Chengdu soared by 1.709 million. In addition to Chengdu, Xixian new area has been integrated with Xian household registration since it was transferred to Xian in 2017. In 2019, Laiwu was incorporated into Jinan from an independent prefecture level city, which directly increased the registered population of Jinan. It is reported that Penglai City and Changdao County of Shandong Province have been cancelled this time, and Penglai District of Yantai city has been set up. It is estimated that the registered population of Yantai district will increase by 450000. The establishment of Xinjin District in Xinjin County will be cancelled, and the population of Chengdu district is expected to increase by more than 300000.
