The event, hosted by the city’s municipal publicity department and commercial bureau, was held to highlight the fruitful results yielded in Yantai since the implementation of the reform and opening-up policy in 1987.
Journalists visited Yantai’s development zone, bonded port zone and high-tech zone to explore the progress made in the city, as well as its business environment.
To keep the city on track with its opening-up, a series of policies have been launched to hasten the development of industrial parks and exhibition businesses in the city.
Yantai, one of the14 pioneer coastal cities in China that has undergone the process of reform and opening-up to the world, has also stepped up efforts to lure investment and highly skilled workers, with the aim of building the city into a manufacturing and marine economic hub.
