Shingjing - 1950-1960 - the State Housing project
On 9 january 1950 the People's Republic of Sinjin was found by Jing Mufeng. It was a relieve for the most inhabitants of the country, because it meant that there would come peace and rest. The Communistic Party garanteed work to all people. But there was no work on the countryside, which meant that a lot of people were forced to move to the city. Shingjing was the city which grew the fastest. Industry came to the city and the city garanteed the people a home. That's why they started the State Housing project. Many flats were built and the number of citizens grew rapidly.
The quarters which were built by the State Housing project were Xiabouneng in the south of the city (next to the People's Square) and the largest quarter Mujung Yuxeng in the north (next to the Square of the Peaceful Earth)
