Pingtan Area in Fujian FTZ promotes cross-strait cooperation, serves 'One Belt, One Road' strategy

In his last year's inspection tour of the Pingtan free trade area, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed that Pingtan is not only the key for Fujian-Taiwan collaboration but also a window of China's opening-up.
Lin Jiangling, vice director of the management committee of the Pingtan Comprehensive Pilot Zone, told sino-us.com that the Pingtan free trade area is committed to "providing policies and measures that can promote liberalization of investment, trade and personnel exchanges between Fujian province and Taiwan".【More】

Tangmo village is spellbinding black-white arcadia
After a two-hour bumpy ride, I was mesmerized with the sight of the black-tiled and white-walled dwellings in Tangmo village, which is now located in Huizhou district, Huangshan city, central China's Anhui province.
The ancient village was originally built in the Tang dynasty and rose to its florescence in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The residences of the ancient village are typical Hui-style buildings, which feature black tiles and white walls, are surrounded by high courtyard walls shaped like horse heads for fireproofing, and decorated with exquisite carvings made of wood, brick and stone....【More】
