The State Council, China's cabinet, has approved the establishment of seven new FTZs in the provinces of Liaoning, Zhejiang, Henan, Hubei, Sichuan and Shaanxi as well as Chongqing Municipality, according to an official statement released on Friday.
The decision carries strategic importance in terms of opening up and reform, cutting bureaucratic red tape and exploring financial innovation, the statement said.
The expansion came nearly four years after the launch of China's first FTZ in Shanghai to test a broad range of economic reforms, including more openness to foreign investment and fewer restrictions on capital flows.
