Party official touts ecological benefits, location as assets
Preserving the natural environment and boosting green development are a prerequisite foundation for the Pingtan Comprehensive Experimental Zone in Fujian province to develop into an international tourist island, local officials said.
Yu Xuefeng, deputy head of the Party working committee of the experimental zone, said Pingtan's ecological resources and location advantages are favorable conditions for the construction of an international tourist island.
"We should handle the relationship between economic development and environmental protection," Yu said. "It is necessary to form a good foundation for green development in terms of spatial planning, industrial layout, project introduction and urban construction."
For the Pingtan Comprehensive Experimental Zone, the blue sea, silver beach and the green water and mountains are important environmental foundations for its sustainable development, and they are advantageous resources for supporting high-quality growth.
