On August 23rd, Mayor Zhang Ruishu, accompanied by heads of Municipal General Office, Department of Ocean and Fisheries, Urban Planning Bureau and other departments concerned, made a field inspection on a few key places along the coastal line and learn about works on coastal beach protection and utilization.
Zhang Ruishu and his party paid visits to Dongjiangzhuang beach on the east of the economic-technical development zone, newly planned bathing beach and aquafarm in Tangzizhai of Shanhaiguan District, banks of Xinkai River in Haigang District, coastal beach to the west of NO.2 Company of Qinhuangdao Port Corporation, and Pingshuiqiao Bathing beach in Beidaihe District. The mayor has made detailed inquiries on the beaches, rivers, buildings, eco-environment and sanitation in every place of his visits.
Coastal beaches are the invaluable resource of the city and the iconic representation of the city’s tourist industry. All coastal prefectures and districts, relevant departments directly under city government are supposed to attach great importance to the preservation, exploration and utilization of coastal beaches. The piloting work of bay chief system should be further enhanced to regulate sanitation, remove temporary and illegal buildings, manage fish-farming in shallow marine water, fishing port and boat docking stations, so as to improve the environment of coastal beaches constantly. We should strike a balance between exploitation and protection. On combining the features of Qinhuangdao’s tourist industry and the aim of building a famous coastal tourist city, we should make high-level planning, development and construction of the coastal area on the basis of fine protection of its eco-resources in accordance with the laws and regulations, constantly enrich coastal tourism, enhance the quality of tourism products and services, and step up our efforts in building Qinhuangdao into a first-class international tourist city.
