SHENZHEN, China, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in China's Sichuan Province has invited global investors to visit beautiful Ganzi as a locale for potential investment, as well as travelers to take in the area's many sites at the 12th China (Shenzhen) International Cultural Industries Fair (ICIF).
As one of the highest-profile cultural industry fairs in Asia, the 12th ICIF is a five-day event that started on May 12. The Kangba art-themed pavilion (Pavilion No. 8), set up by the prefectural government, has drawn the attention of a large number of visitors. The prefecture's government officials at the fair have talked to global investors about taking a look at Ganzi as a possible location for investing as well as to other attendees visiting the booth about choosing Ganzi as a travel destination.
The officials explained during the event that as a major contributor to China's national cultural heritage, Ganzi boasts several attractions, including: Gongga Mountain in eastern Ganzi, known as "King of the Mountains in Sichuan Province"; Hailuo Valley, a natural reserve in southeastern Ganzi; Daocheng Yading in southern Ganzi, credited as being the last Shangri-La; and Dege Parkhang in northern Ganzi, also known as Dege Sutra-Printing House and the hometown of King Gesar, a particularly unique destination due to the combination of Kangba art and natural sites. Ganzi has launched 203 investment projects in a move to attract investors worldwide, including 60 tourism projects with estimated investment of more than 23 billion yuan, seven culture-related projects with estimated investment of 635 million yuan and 15 traditional Tibetan medicine projects with an estimated investment of nearly 2 billion yuan.
The 9th Kangba Art Festival, the 7th China Kangding International Love Song Festival and the Sichuan Ganzi Mountainous Region Tourism Festival will be held in Ganzi in August. "August is the best time to visit Ganzi as the number of cultural and tourism events to be held during the month this year will not only be a unique opportunity to learn a lot about the local culture but also should prove to be pleasurable and fun," officials said.
