Decoding Lijiang's Modern Flower Industry Park:

A focal point of their journey has been the Lijiang Modern Flower Industrial Park, a visionary venture with an investment of 640 million yuan. This haven for high-end fresh-cut flowers, seedlings, and distinctive local blooms integrates cutting-edge agricultural practices, research and development, cold chain logistics, e-commerce, leisure sightseeing, and incubating entrepreneurial endeavours.
