Twelve projects -- worth 4.074 billion yuan ($592 million) -- were signed at a tea promotion event in Beijing on March 26.

Chen Changxu, secretary of the municipal Party committee of Tongren city, in Southwest China's Guizhou province, attended the event and made a speech.

He said that Tongren, lying in the east of the province, is known as the hometown of tea because of its geographical conditions.

Both the region's Fanjing Mountain and Foding Mountain have dense vegetation and enjoy fresh air and abundant rainfall. They are part of the national nature reserves.

According to Chen, the tea grown here is up to EU standards and is tested against 500 indexes. It is graded as the top green tea.

Environmental, economic and social benefits have been achieved in the city following a path of coordinated development, noted Chen.

"We stick to the supply-side structural reform in the agriculture sector and promote the adjustment of industrial structure," said Chen.

"We also take brand-building into the strategy and let all the people in the region benefit more from the tea industry," he added.

Since 2006, over 30,000 hectares of tea plantation have been added in Guizhou province each year.

Boasting around 467,000 hectares of tea plantation, the province has become the largest tea plantation base in China.
