What are the considerations for the site selection and construction of the Expo?

Site selection: Jiangxi River Ecological Corridor

In the early stage of site selection and planning and design, the Jiangxi river ecological corridor with good habitat conditions was selected as the site of the world horticultural exposition, which can fully protect and utilize the current resource background and make the construction of the world horticultural exposition reach the minimum consumption.

In the process of design and construction, we will adhere to the concept of adjusting measures to local conditions, make full use of the typical forest structure in Western Sichuan, as well as natural landscape elements such as rivers, wetlands, farmland, fruit forest, etc., and carry out planning and design on the basis of not damaging the natural structure of the site. At the same time, from the two aspects of exhibition period and after exhibition, we should fully integrate the functions of the exhibition garden in the exhibition period and after the exhibition, so as to reduce the transformation in the later stage.

In the future, the park will integrate industrial elements such as gardening, scientific research, natural education, leisure, health preservation, sports, culture and other industrial elements, and develop in the direction of theme park, scientific research exhibition and leisure vacation, so as to realize the long-term utilization and sustainable development of the exhibition area of the exhibition hall.

Set up eight functional areas

Adhering to the development concept of green and low-carbon, sustainable conservation, sharing and inclusion, through the planning and design means of stay, construct, borrow and integrate, eight functional areas are set up in the exhibition area, including China Urban Exhibition Park, International City Exhibition Park and enterprise Exhibition Park, and theme Gardens such as World Garden Lake, world garden tower and world famous flower garden are set up to present rich and colorful exhibition experience, Show the world horticultural culture and Chinese traditional horticulture.

It is worth mentioning that two sub venues, Wenjiang Sanyi Penjing garden and Xinjin Tianfu Agricultural Expo Park, were set up this time to build a systematic and perfect exhibition system together with the sub venues, and strive to present an innovative, distinctive and sustainable international horticultural event.
