Recently, the State Council approved Shandong Province's proposal for the adjustment of its administrative divisions of Jinan City and Laiwu City. Laiwu City was revoked and was under the jurisdiction of Jinan City. The original Laicheng District of Laiwu was changed into the new Laiwu District of Jinan while Gangcheng District of Laiwu was changed into Gangcheng District of Jinan.

After the adjustment, Jinan administrates 10 districts and 2 counties, with an area of 10,244 square kilometers and a population of 8.7 million.

Jinan and Laiwu border onto each other, enjoy similar customs, close economic ties and frequent personnel exchanges. Especially in recent years, Shandong has made great efforts to promote the construction of Jinan-Laiwu Cooperation Zone, which has initially formed a good pattern of integrated and coordinated development.

Wang Kaiyong, an expert of Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, believed that the adjustment is conducive to further optimizing the urban spatial layout of Jinan, promoting the co-construction and sharing of infrastructure, giving a play to the leading, exemplary and radiating role of Jinan (the capital of the province), and building an industrial system and development pattern that is diversified , complementary, coordinated, interconnected and win-win with the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
