Fuqing celebrates 30 years of great achievement
FUQING, China, Dec. 29, 2020 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/– On December 26, 1990, Fuqing, previously a county, was approved as a county-level city of Fuzhou by the State Council. Fuqing has since entered a new historical era, embarking on a glorious development journey.
Now ranking the 15th among the top 100 counties in the country and the 2nd in the province of Fujian, Fuqing has developed into a strong industrial city from a large agricultural county, with the regional GDP increased by about 95 times over the past three decades. Continuing a strong momentum of development this year, the city is ranked first in the city of Fuzhou in the evaluations of “project-driven, leapfrogging development” and investment attraction.
Thirty years ago, there were no expressways or railways, and the city had one of the least dense road networks in the city. Today, the port of Jiangyin connects the city with the world, expressways and railways provide fast access in and out of the city, and the density of the road network is the highest in the city of Fuzhou. It’s also designated as a National Civilized City and a Livable City of China in 2020.
Thirty years ago, Fuqing had only one ambulance. Today, local people can enjoy high-quality medical services near their homes, as the city has begun to construct its first Grade III, Class A hospital and Fuqing City Hospital has become an affiliated hospital of Fujian Medical University. The city invests heavily in education, old-age care service, and cultural facilities, including a stadium, a cultural and art center, and a museum, bringing greater benefits to local people.
What Fuqing has achieved is just the beginning of an even more prosperous future, and will continue to forge ahead with new achievements.
