The Yangtze River is vast and the Qing River is handsome. At the confluence of the two rivers, the ancient city of Yidu is flourishing and full of vitality. In recent years, Yidu City, Hubei Province, has been firmly practicing the scientific concept of "grasping the big protection and not making big development", answering to the Yangtze River with green development and interpreting the new meaning of "the pearl of the two rivers".

Green bottoming, solid development chassis. In recent years, Yidu City has focused on optimizing the ecological environment, comprehensively improving 46 kilometers of the Yangtze River shoreline, comprehensively dismantling 844,700 square meters of aquaculture nets in the waters of the Qingjiang River Yuyang River, and comprehensively launching the Yangtze River, Qingjiang River and Yuyang River regional comprehensive improvement project ...... Nowadays, the shoreline along the Yangtze River is green and beautiful, and the water is clear and fat. The "panda in water" Chinese autumn sand duck has been flying to Yidu for 8 consecutive years to overwinter; the Chinese iguana, a key protected wild animal of the second grade of the country, has appeared in Songle Mountain Forest for the first time ...... A beautiful picture of man and nature coexisting harmoniously is slowly unfolding.

Yidu City has a perfect layout of "one district and four parks", and 21 high-tech enterprises have become "invisible champion enterprises in niche fields"; six pillar industries are competing for strength, and they have the world's largest production base of oseltamivir phosphate, the world's largest production base of ultraviolet absorber, the world's largest production base of formed foil, and other "global best" of six products; new industries are growing, and the construction of a number of new energy and new materials industry projects, such as Dong Yang battery aluminum foil and Xingfa lithium iron phosphate, is in full swing, injecting surging momentum for high-quality development.

After winning the "two consecutive crowns" as a national civilized city, Yidu City proposed "two years to strengthen the foundation, three years to cross the level" and sounded the trumpet of "creating a national civilized model city". Nowadays, in Yidu, in cities and villages, communities and schools, streets and alleys, the new wind of civilization is in the air, mutual help is in the air, and the city of happiness is within reach.

The rudder is steady when the oar is striving, and the wind is just right to set the sail. Yidu is making great strides and forging ahead to give the "Pearl of Two Rivers" a new glow! (Economic Daily reporter Dong Qingsen and Liu Jie)
