Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province in China's Northeast, is the political, economic and cultural center of the region and its history and geographical location have given it a kind of exoticism and beauty.

For one thing, it is known for the culture of its various ethic groups and its proximity to Russia, but also as a crossroads for western and eastern cultures.

It is also a vast land with fertile soil, and a major agricultural area as well as a major on the northeast economic rim.

Taken together, these things make Harbin an important cultural and economic base and an ideal place for further development and opening-up.

One part of its development strategy involves an "extension to the south" and the developers have planned a new international industrial city - the Hanan Industrial New Town - for the southern part of Harbin. This project will take 20 years or so to complete, and cover a 462-square-kilometer area.

The New Town under construction is expected to be an "important industrial and cultural town with some unique features, such as new industries and more coordinated development.

The project has already attracted 7,000 enterprises, whose total output is expected to be worth 60 billion yuan ($9.4 billion) by the end of this year.

Construction plans for the new town call for the integration of enterprise culture, traditional industrial culture, and the regional culture.

A key part of the new town will be an International Data City, or "Chinese Cloud Valley". The opening phase of this project will include the "Green International Data Center Cluster". This covers a 100,000-square-meter area, with construction work lasting from May 2010 to December 2013.
