Chongqing- The press conference of Chongqing’s first municipal-level historical and cultural city was held on May 13. Jiangjin successfully declared the municipal-level historical and cultural city, which is the first municipal-level historical and cultural city since the implementation of the Regulations on the Protection of Chongqing’s Historical and Cultural Cities, Famous Towns and Famous Villages on September 1, 2018.
Jiangjin is a historical city in Chongqing. According to the conference, the overall pattern of streets and routes in Jiangjin has remained almost the same today. Meanwhile, the names and spatial scales of the streets and the courtyard environment of the buildings have been effectively maintained. The construction of streets and routes has been relatively completely preserved and continues to develop with the change of the city. For example, there are two relatively complete traditional style areas during the declaration process: the traditional style of Xiangfu Road and the traditional appearance of the Jihua 355 shoe factory. All those elements have shaped Jiangjin’s advantage in being evaluated.
Meanwhile, Jiangjin invested a total of RMB 1.5 billion to protect cultural relics and historical buildings through different methods, such as investigation danger, repairing, protecting, and improving.
Relying on the styles of Baisha Town and Tanghe Ancient Towns, Jiangjin focuses on developing opportunities for the film and television industry along the Yangtze River in Chongqing, creating the Baisha cultural film and television tourism industry. The use of this series of historical and cultural resources has effectively activated the vitality and attractiveness of history and culture in Jiangjin, promoting and enhancing the cultural soft power of this city.
Moreover, Jiangjin will also develop opportunities for the Sichuan-Chongqing cooperation and the construction of Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle to accelerate the development of tourism in adjacent areas like Luzhou and Zunyi. In addition, Jiangjin will cooperate with those areas, jointly promote the discount of scenic spots tickets, hotels, and fuel subsidies, to create the Golden Triangle of China’s tourism.
