SHAOWU, China, May 30, 2022 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

From May 18th to 20th, representatives of more than a dozen of national, 
provincial and municipal media outlets participated in the media publicity tour 
in Shaowu, Nanping, Fujian province. 

Themed  "Shaowu is a Great Place", the event was held by the Publicity 
Department of the CPC Shaowu Municipal Committee. During the tour, they 
witnessed the high-quality development of green economy in Shaowu and the 
city's rural revitalization empowered by the fusion of tourism and cultural 

Over the past 20 years, Shaowu has achieved remarkable results in reform and 
development. For the new era, Shaowu puts forward the "1123" development 
strategy. Shaowu is planning to build a hundreds-billion yuan green industry 
cluster of new materials, forest products, cultural tourism and healthcare, and 
also create a state-level economic development zone, laying a solid foundation 
for the city to deliver the idea of "Shaowu is a Great Place".

A special plan to build a "beautiful waterside town" has been included in 
Shaowu's newly revised overall urban plan. The city shifts from the traditional 
idea of water just as a resource to be conserved to that of making water 
fulfill multiple purposes, with a focus on enhancing the people's sense of gain 
and making water part of industrial development. This further contributes to 
the idea that "lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets".

Shaowu has taken well-targeted steps across the city, taking advantage of its 
cultural tourism resources. In line with its "Tourism + Culture" strategy, it 
has created a series of characteristic towns such as Jinkeng Township, Heping 
Town (a famous historical and cultural town), Yinghua (Cherry Blossoms) Town, 
and Sports Town. The city has been empowering rural revitalization through the 
fusion of tourism and cultural industries.

Today, Shaowu is known for its great people, its revolutionary traditions, its 
green ecology, its industrial development, and its openness and civilization. 
In the future, Shaowu will make Shaowu better known and heard across the 
country, and improve the quality of its green development, so as to live up to 
the reputation of "Shaowu is a Great Place".
