Guiyang and Guian New Area in Southwest China's Guizhou province recently released a plan for the high-quality development of the forest-derived economy.
According to the plan, Guiyang and Guian will utilize more than 2 million mu (133,333.33 hectares) to develop the forest-derived economy by 2025, with an annual output value growth rate of more than 7 percent and a comprehensive output value of above 68 billion yuan ($10.57 billion).
The plan requires Guiyang and Guian to develop the cultivation of imitative wild mushrooms and build at least 10 demonstration plantation bases covering 3,000 mu by 2025.
Focusing on market demands, Guiyang will develop its traditional Chinese medicine industry in Wudang district, Baiyun district, Qingzhen city and Xifeng county by building 10 demonstration plantation bases and creating five planting standards by 2025.
Guiyang's Wudang district, Baiyun district, Xiuwen county, Kaiyang county, Xifeng county and Qingzhen city will cultivate poultry and bees, establishing 50 poultry breeding bases. They will breed more than 300,000 birds and create about 200,000 bee hives by 2025.
To improve the economic benefits of low-output-value forests, Guiyang will grow Shandong maple trees, tea-oil trees, Sichuan peppers and walnuts in Qingzhen city and Kaiyang county. It will also transform 400,000 mu of forests into a suitable environment for mushroom growing by 2025.
In Guiyang's Huaxi district, Wudang district, Baiyun district, Qingzhen city, Xifeng county and Kaiyang county, suitable State-owned forests will be utilized as seedling bases. By 2025, Guiyang will construct 10,000 mu of such bases.
By 2025, Guiyang and Guian will also cultivate five deep-processing enterprises for forest products, build three demonstration bases for forest tourism, and establish three featured brands for the forest-derived economy.
