Jiangsu Province spares no effort to promote green development
Located on China's east coast, Jiangsu Province in recent years has made great efforts in adjusting ecological layout, optimizing industrial structure and adhering to green development.
In 1997, the classical gardens of Suzhou were put on the UNESCO's heritage list. In 2018, the total number of gardens included in the "Suzhou Garden List" reached 108, and Suzhou was officially transformed from "the City of Gardens" into "the City of 100 Gardens". One sixth of the area in Jiangsu is covered by water.
As the province grows with and thrives on water, the system of river chiefs originated here from the treatment of Taihu Lake.
At present, there are more than 57,000 river chiefs at provincial, municipal, county, township and village levels in Jiangsu, making a full coverage of the water body. On June 2 to 4, Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition ushered in the "Jiangsu Day" event, which comprehensively promotes the horticultural achievements with Jiangsu characteristics.
