Shanghai to close factories ahead of Disneyland launch

--from TravelDaily Asia:

More than 150 industrial plants located close to the new Shanghai Disneyland Resort will be shut down ahead of the park’s opening next year, it has been revealed.

The Shanghai Daily reported the Shanghai Economy & Informatization Commission as saying that 153 industrial enterprises located in the Pudong New Area have been identified as “heavy polluters”, and will be closed.

The move is aimed at improving the air quality at Shanghai Disneyland and creating a better visitor experience. Instead of the factories, the Pudong New Area government said that new industries involved in the tourism, agriculture, public service sectors will be promoted near Shanghai Disney Resort.

It is unclear whether the industrial plants will be offered relocation to alternative sites.

Shanghai Disneyland Resort will become the world’s biggest Disney theme park when it opens to the public in spring 2016.
