Yancheng, a city of Jiangsu province, has launched a week-long event in Shanghai to promote cultural and tourism cooperation with the municipality. 

A number of collaborative projects in fields such as tourist attraction facility management, digital industry and cultural facilities, were signed at the event's launch ceremony on Dec 22 with a total investment of 11.6 billion yuan ($1.77 billion).

The event, which takes place at the China Financial Information Center on the eastern bank of Huangpu River, also includes an exhibition promoting Yancheng as a tourist destination. 

The city, located in the northern part of Jiangsu, will be connected with Shanghai by high-speed rail by the end of this month. The opening of the railway, which will reduce the travel time between the cities to less than 2.5 hours, is set to accelerate the economic and cultural cooperation between the cities, said Wu Xiaodan, chief of Yancheng's publicity department.
