To build the new district into an open platform and enhance its internationalization and modernization, it focused planning for building "two major ports" and "four business centers". The "two major ports" are constructed relying on Longjia International Airport and railway comprehensive freight yard, respectively. The "four business centers" are Beihu Longxiang International Business District, Airport International Business District, International Logistics Center Service Zone, and Changde Service Business Cluster.
