A world expo park project, with an investment of 1.6 billion yuan ($256.7 million), will begin in the county of Urumqi, in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, in July.

The project’s goal is to build a large scenic area in Banfang Ditch River field with environmental protection, tourism, and leisure functions.

According to the plan, 60 percent of the expo park will be designated as a green area, and there will be an ecological park, botanical garden and greenhouse, with different kinds of plants brought from around the world.

Project director Yue Qiuhua said a miniature landscape attraction of the world’s seven continents, including Asia, Europe, and Africa, will also be built in the field, equipped with a variety of catering and entertainment facilities such as hotels, 5D cinemas, and performing arts centers.

Yue said that the world expo park project will help promote the local economy and tourism and create many job opportunities for the county’s farmers and herdsmen.
