Beijing's municipal administration center has been officially moved to its sub-center in the eastern district of Tongzhou on Friday.

Beijing is shifting some of its administrative functions out of the city center into Tongzhou to help address problems including traffic congestion and air pollution. The move is also part of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integrated development plan.

Beijing municipal government agencies have been moving their offices to Tongzhou since the end of 2017.
