Updated: 2019-06-26

  During an investment and trade promotion targeting the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, East China's Jiangxi province showcased its rich resources and advantages in its cultural industry. It also achieved some high-value cultural cooperation.

  The event, held on June 10-14 in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, as well as in Hong Kong and Macao, is a channel forged by Jiangxi to strengthen industrial exchanges and cooperation with the Bay Area.

  Jiangxi presented 92 cultural projects in Shenzhen on June 10, seeking a total investment value of 81 billion yuan ($11.73 billion). Of them, seven worth 8.99 billion yuan in total were signed on the spot.

  Government data show the business revenue generated by the province's cultural industry increased to 296.2 billion yuan last year from nearly 146.03 billion yuan in 2012, reporting an average annual growth of more than 12 percent during the period.

  Cultural tourism was a focus of the series of promotional activities.

  The Jiangxi Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism in cooperation with the Shangrao city government launched a cultural tourism promotion in Hong Kong on June 13.

  "Jiangxi is only one hour away from Hong Kong by air, three hours by high-speed train and six hours by expressway," Wu Zhongqiong, vice-governor of Jiangxi province, said at the cultural and tourism promotion event in Hong Kong.

  "We warmly welcome people from Hong Kong and worldwide to visit Jiangxi, to experience green mountains and rivers in the province as well as its history and culture."

  Her remarks were echoed by Yang Jian, deputy director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

  Yang said as Hong Kong changes its role in the Bay Area from a liaison to an active constructor, it will have closer cooperation with Jiangxi.

  Jiangxi is rich in history and culture and visitors can have access to the history of the world-renowned Jingdezhen porcelain. They can also take pleasure in its beautiful countryside, he added.
