Long-term vision

Summary

The Huaquiao government held the belief that environmental improvement brings economic benefits. It wanted to regain Huaquiao's historical reputation as “the home of the fish and rice”, and to create a good environment, which would attract more business to the region. It has invested in land recovery projects since 2007 to clearly demonstrate this linkage. Huaqiao made the project a national level conservation centre to raise its profile as an exemplary project and maintain its long-term focus by avoiding local planning changes.
