Guiyang and Guian New Area in Southwest China's Guizhou province recently launched a development plan to increase the quality and popularity of agricultural products.
In 2021, Guiyang and Guian have had more than 90 agricultural products recognized as organic food, green agricultural products, or geographical indication products. The number is expected to reach 110 by 2023.
Guiyang and Guian are promoting cooperation between enterprises, cooperatives and farmers to build plantation bases that meet national standards to sell agricultural products to the Greater Bay Area.
Guiyang and Guian are encouraging enterprises to develop agricultural product initial and fine processing businesses to add more value to vegetable processing and to recycle by-products during the production process.

All agricultural production bases are required to be evaluated when outputting products and to establish a quality integrity system. Information from all agricultural products produced in Guiyang and Guian can be traced, and the qualified rate of sampling inspections is above 98 percent.
Guiyang and Guian have built several agricultural brands, including Kaiyang Se-enriched tea, Xiuwen kiwi fruit, and Shandi Guishuang vegetables.
For products registered as geographical indications by the State Administration for Market Regulation or Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Guiyang and Guian will offer a 50,000-yuan ($7,708.52) one-time bonus in the year of registration.
Meanwhile, enterprises possessing renowned trademarks will receive a one-time award of 500,000 yuan per trademark.
Guiyang and Guian are also encouraging major enterprises to sell their agricultural products to countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative by relying on Guizhou's seven distribution centers in Southeast Asia.
