China’s State Council has released a framework to develop 317,000 square kilometers along the Yangtze River as urban areas to host transportation and energy projects, Reuters reported.

China’s top leadership has previously stated its intention to turn the Yangtze, which runs from China’s western highlands and empties into the East China Sea near Shanghai, into an economic axis on par with China’s developed coastal regions.
