Baodi district is geographically surrounded by Beijing, Tianjin and Tangshan, encompassing a population of 37 million within a radius of 100 kilometers. This accounts for 60% of the total population in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei provinces. The construction of wastewater treatment plants such as the one in Jinjing Newtown is a top priority for the Baodi government. We continue to seize the opportunity and to secure more contracts in this region.”
