The photo exhibition celebrating the four decades of reform and opening-up in Zhejiang Province opened at Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou on October 26th. The exhibition is opened for free to the public and will last until November 25th.
East China's Zhejiang is a pioneer in implementing China's reform and opening-up policy and has seen tremendous changes in the past 40 years. The exhibition, with four themes, displays more than 1,300 photos on the social development of Zhejiang Province since the central government announced the policy in 1970s. All exhibits were collected from central and provincial media outlets, Zhejiang Photographers Association, and other shutterbugs and citizens.
Hangzhou is the capital city of Zhejiang Province and the local political, economic and cultural center. As the southern terminus of the Grand Canal, the city is located on the lower reaches of the Qiantang River in southeast China, a superior position in the Yangtze Delta. The subtropical monsoon climate contributes to varied seasonal sceneries, making Hangzhou one of China's most popular travel destinations all the year round.
