An exhibition recently held in Jining, East China's Shandong province showcased the city's significant achievements in many respects, such as public transportation, industrial and social development, as well as rural rejuvenation.
The exhibition was set up in a venue that also accommodated the deputies and members who will attend this year's "two sessions", the seventh session of the 17th Jining Municipal People's Congress and the fifth session of the 13th Jining Municipal Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, which commenced in Jan 24 and 25 respectively.
The pictures on display showed that a number of major infrastructure construction in Jining, including high-speed railways, highways, and flyovers, have been completed.
Some facilities were finished and put into use on schedule despite the impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, said a deputy Wang Feng, who added that these public transportation programs will provide further momentum for the city's economic growth and reduce living costs for the public.
Cultural centers, hospitals, and more public facilities have also been established to improve people's well-beings.
In addition, Jining has made increased efforts to revitalize its rural areas. Villagers' incomes have grown rapidly, noted a deputy Liu Guiju.
Jining also has undergone many beautification efforts, with many new parks and greenbelts built. In addition, the environment in street markets, as well as rural areas has been greatly improved. Jining was honored as a national-level civilized city last year and ranked fifth among the 40 prefecture-level cities that have won the honor.
