China will build the Chaidamu Tibetan-inhabited area, Qinghai Province, into a pilot circular economic zone in the next few years, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

Covering 256,000 sq km, the Chaidamu circular economic zone is the largest of its kind in the county and the only Tibetan-inhabited area taking the path of cyclic economic growth.

Rich in mineral resources, the zone is regarded as crucial to Qinghai's social and economic progress, eco-safety protection of the Sanjiangyuan area and Tibet's development, said Xie Zhenhua, vice-minister of the commission.

He also noted that for the area with the underdevelopment of natural resources and industrial expansion, the introduction of a recycling economic system is designed to avoid taking the traditional growth pattern. That is, priority will be given to sustainable development, especially environmental protection.

The overall plan to build this area has specified the development orientation, including mineral, energy, land and water resources. Stress will be laid on the sectors such as chemical engineering of salty lakes, the metallurgical industry, plateau bioindustry and renewable energy.
