According to the design plan, the economic zone is divided into two areas focusing on different functions, and the zone as a whole will introduce traditional Chinese cultural elements in design and will be linked by a green corridor.

With a total planned area of about 50 square kilometers, the zone has a 26-squre-kilometer area in the west focused on international medical treatment, airport support, and other life supporting industries; and a 24-square-kilometer area in the east to develop the industries of international exhibitions, comprehensive bonding, and aviation logistics.

Guided by the development concepts of “innovation, coordination, green, openness, and sharing”, and featuring traditional Chinese cultural symbols as design elements, the zone has obtained US LEED Green Building Certification (LEED for Cities) Platinum pre-certification.
