As a national structural reform testing district, the Central Business District of Tianjin, which was a part of Tianjin Binhai New Area, has been incorporated into the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area, and the Tianjin Harbor Economic Area, has been incorporated into the Tianjin Airport Area of Tianjin Pilot Free Trade Zone.
Also, the social responsibility for economic-technological development in Tianjin has been transferred to TEDA Street.
After Tianjin Binhai New Area joined the national development strategy in 2006, Tianjin Binhai New Area implemented two system reforms for administrative control. Seven functional zones were settled in Binhai New Area: the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area, Tianjin Airport Area of Tianjin Pilot Free Trade Zone, the Tianjin Binhai Hi-tech Development Zone, the Tianjin Port Dongjiang Area of the Tianjin Pilot Free Trade Zone, Sino-Singapore Eco City, the Central Business District and the Harbor Economic Area. All seven zones have promoted implementation of the national strategy and striven for more high-end technical characteristics.
Due to the repetition of functional zones in Binhai New Area, it has been reduced to five zones to improve efficiency and scientific development. The integration of functional zones will now realize different advantages and promote common development.

The Tianjin Binhai Hi-tech Development Zone will pay attention to new energy and the new energy automobile industry, promote the construction of the National Battery and Hi-tech New Energy Auto and Tsinghua UniGroup Headquarters.
