The State Council, China's Cabinet, recently issued a five-year development plan for the nation's tourism industry, which specifically mentioned numerous Zhejiang localities, including Hangzhou, Ningbo, Anji, and Yiwu.

The central government proposes strengthening a number of regional tourism brands, including the Hangzhou Huangshan Tourism Corridor.

Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province, and Huangshan, the best-known tourism city in Anhui province, have been linked via a 265-kilometer high-speed railway line, along which sit numerous popular tourism spots boasting both picturesque landscapes and rich cultures.

The central government has designated Hangzhou as one of the country's "tourism hubs", Ningbo as one of the "key tourism cities", and Anji and Yiwu as "characteristic tourism destinations".

The plan also includes the development of  tourism resources along the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, East China's seashores, and the mountainous bordering regions of Zhejiang, Anhui, and Fujian provinces, as well as the promotion of the China Yiwu Cultural and Tourism Product Trade Fair.
