Coordinated Regional Development and Territorial Spatial Optimization in 15th Five-Year Plan


Major Function Oriented Zone (MFOZ), an attempt and exploration aimed at ecological civilization during China’s industrial civilization period which is divided into two stages, the stage of MFOZ planning and the stage of the national strategy and basic institution before and after the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) National Congress, and the main characteristics of both stages are analyzed. Since the 18th CPC National Congress, the strategic thinking of the MFOZ has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, the strategic pattern of the MFOZ has been basically formed, the development of the categorized MFOZ has achieved remarkable progress, and the MFOZ mechanism has been initially established. It is proposed that the MFOZ will continue to play a greater strategic and fundamental role in the Chinese-style modernization. As a major strategy, plan and institutional arrangement for implementing the leadership of the Communist Party of China, giving full play to the advantages of the socialist system, and realizing modern spatial governance from top to bottom, the MFOZ should further strengthen the development and protection orientation towards land space, which is people-centered, with high-quality development as the primary task, and new development pattern as the strategic basis, MFOZ should expand new functions that meet the people’s aspirations for a better life and the national security needs, and rely on a sound spatial governance system to establish more precise MFOZ development guidelines and supporting policies.
