"Charming Wuxi": a celebrated Wuxi with splendid sceneries in southern Jiangsu
The inner beauty, namely, cultural deposits and city spirit, is more important than the outer beauty for a city. Therefore, it is our struggling direction to arouse cultural potential and dig cultural resources so as to enhance Wuxi’s city spirit and share development fruits with citizens.
Located in the center of the well-developed Yangtze River Delta in eastern China and adjacent to Taihu Lake, Wuxi is granted the name “Pearl of Taihu Lake”. With the nutrition from Wu Culture thousands of years ago and superior natural landscapes, Wuxi has been one of the top 10 tourist cities in China.
As a rider in the domestic wave of scientific and technical innovation, Wuxi has given priority to improving city charm, especially the protection and utilization of culture and ecology, as well as the development of cultural industries. It was put forward by the Wuxi Municipal Party Committee and the Wuxi Municipal People’s Government that the output of the cultural industries will take a proportion of 6.4% by the end of the “12th Five-Year Plan” period, which means the annual growth rate will be kept above 45%. In the following years, Wuxi is to focus on the development of film and television media, creative design, performing arts and entertainment and cultural heritage development and other industries. Additionally, the culture and entertainment subsidies for citizens will be increased by arranging at least RMB 100 million.
