Wujiang District spent a total of 3.76 billion yuan (US$596 million) in 255 beautiful town construction projects in 2017.
Among those projects, the "Silk Town" Zhenze Town and Qidu Town, which is dubbed as the town of traditional Chinese studies and music, were two key developments. The two towns were also included into the list of national characteristic towns last year.
Also last year, the district built 37 three-star Quality-life Villages to promote the Beautiful Village project, two more than the goal set by Suzhou. A total of 30 characteristic rural villages will be developed during the 13th Five-Year Plan period.
