The 163-km “golden waterway” of the Yangtze River Hunan section is within the region of Yueyang, which endows the city with important responsibility. Governor Mao started his tour from Wumakou in Huarong County, also the start point of the Yangtze River Hunan section. He visited Hualong dock, Chenglingji Qilishan Hydrometric Station, and Sanjiangkou, and Tieshanzui irrigation and drainage station along the river bank. He was glad to see vibrant scenes of solid dykes, green riverbanks, lucid water, and picturesque scenery.

President Xi Jinping put forward the call for “protecting Yangtze River” three years ago, Mao noted. Hunan should persist in giving priority to ecological progress and green development. Works should be coordinated to push forward ecological remediation and protection; promote water pollution treatment; optimize port layout; improve flood control capacity; and, build beautiful riverbanks.
