Yongding River culture to empower Daxing's new growth

Updated: 2021-11-30

The Yongding River, the mother river of Beijing, as well as an artery of ecology and a bonding force in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, is expected to continuously empower Beijing's Daxing district in a new era. 

The district held an online Yongding River Culture Forum on Nov 27 to focus on the relationship between the long-standing river culture and a new Daxing, and look for new facets of local economic and social development.

Daxing is home to more than 55 km of the river's length. The riverside Beijing Daxing International Airport has brought unprecedented opportunities to the district, making it a new gateway for international exchanges.

The event focused on the district's imprints of the river, eye-catching regional industrial development and fashionable business and tourism services, receiving over 1.62 million views.

During the activity, four experts and scholars gave their advice on pursuing innovative growth, which involves improving the design of urban ecosystems, inviting professionals and developing cultural and creative products.
