外文标题：Beijing to restrict population to 23 million to curb traffic woes
BEIJING: China's national capital Beijing has announced plans to build a new administrative center adjacent to the city to address growing traffic woes while promising to limit its population to 23 million people.
The city would speed up construction of a "subsidiary administrative center" while promising to limit its population to 23 million people, an official announcement said here on Sunday at a key meeting of the ruling Communist Party of China.
During the meeting, a guideline was passed on promoting the integration of Beijing with its neighbouring Hebei Province and Tianjin Municipality.
The city's "subsidiary administrative center" would be "focused" on Tongzhou, a suburban district to the southeast, and its construction must have "remarkable progress" by 2017, according to the guideline.
The guideline also said the city must stick to its population control target of 23 million people. The city's total population stood at 21.5 million in 2014, according to official data, state-run news agency Xinhua reported.
The Chinese capital has sought to address its severe "urban diseases," such as traffic congestion and air pollution, by curbing its population growth and moving some facilities to nearby regions.

Great idea sirji. Delhi need to shift partially its admin centres to neighbouring cities.
Strange as it seems Beijing to restrict population to the level of 23 Million to avoid the congestion and other problems they would have to encounter and wonder what type of Schemes would these People of the Panel adopt ??/ China being China they could be able to get their Goals achieved with methods as only they could adopt since not much is made Public in their Country and only Results are shared to the Media

Same need to be applied to Delhi / Mumbai as people in search of employment dreams come in hordes from Rural areas and end up in slums.
