The infrastructure is also in a state of continuous expansion and improvement and will have 88 billion yuan of public investment between 2017-2020. This investment will cover 16 projects, including: Guangzhou Baiyun Airport Phase-3 expansion, Shenzhen Airport expansion, Zhanjiang Airport relocation and reconstruction, the Huizhou Airport upgrade, Pearl River Delta New Trunk Airport, Jieyang Chaoshan airport upgrade and expansion project and Guangzhou Second Airport, to form a “4 plus 5” hub-airport system with Guangzhou Baiyun Shenzhen Bao’an at the core.
