The organizers said environmental protection is vital to Yanqing’s sustainable growth. They sent donations to local low-income villagers, calling for concerted efforts to build a moderately prosperous society for all by 2020, an ambitious goal set by the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China that concluded a week ago.

Yanqing has rich eco-tourism resources. Liugou Village is a famous destination for rural tourism.
