Some netizens questioned that the sculpture was a image project built by Jianhe county government with huge investment. It was better to use the funds for poverty alleviation.
Local bureau of culture and tourism responded: the project did not use the national poverty alleviation funds
On October 21, Jianhe County Bureau of culture, culture, radio, television and tourism announced that:
Jianhe county is a county with a large population of Miao people. In 2017, in order to develop the tourism industry, Jianhe County yangasha tourism investment company, relying on Jianhe countys cultural tourism resources endowment, built yangasha statue on the North Bank of Qingshui River through self financing and bank financing of 86 million yuan. The statue integrates the cultural connotation of the local Miao Festivals February 2 and June 6. The base height is 22 meters, the height is 66 meters, and the total height is 88 meters. After verification, the project did not use the national poverty alleviation funds.
In 2019, Jianhe county will withdraw from the poverty-stricken county sequence after the special review of state-level poverty-stricken counties, provincial-level third-party assessment, and national re inspection. After poverty reduction, Jianhe county has taken the development of cultural tourism industry as an important starting point of economic and social development and vigorously promoted the whole area tourism. In recent years, the number of tourists coming for sightseeing has increased year by year. During the National Day golden week in 2020, Jianhe tourism industry ushered in a new growth under the normalization of epidemic prevention and control. The county has received more than 220000 tourists and achieved a comprehensive tourism income of 209 million yuan.
According to a news released on the official website of Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture Peoples Government in January 2015, in recent years, Jianhe county has taken tourism and promoting consumption as the new fulcrum of county economic growth. The first is to invest 760 million yuan to build yangasha hot spring town; the second is to steadily promote the construction of scenic spots in the county.

It is reported that after the completion of the Jianhe hot spring cultural tourism complex project, the daily reception capacity will reach 50000 people and 3700 jobs can be provided, including more than 2000 poor people.
According to the cover news, Yue Jian, a researcher engaged in the protection of architectural heritage, believes that there are many ways to promote the development of local tourism, and it is not necessary to build another statue with a large amount of money. There must be ancient villages and buildings in need of repair. We can promote the development of culture and tourism by digging and protecting the cultural buildings that exist. Situ Hua, former vice president of Sichuan Tourism Association, said the incident needs to be treated dialectically. To develop poor counties, there must be a certain amount of cultural investment. If this cultural orientation is accurate, we cant simply say that it is not worth doing. Whether it is worth it or not depends on the final result. If objectively promoting the development of tourism, or even faster than the return of other investment funds, it can not be said that it is wrong to do so. Wu Wenwen, former deputy director of the National Tourism Administration, said, in fact, such things need a degree.
