On Jan 20, the State Council approved the plan to construct the Beibu Gulf City Cluster, which is positioned to be a nice place to live and a window opening to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Using sports as a bridge, cities in the region are expected to further ramp up their cooperation and exchanges.
