The meeting pointed out that Baihe is the mother river of Nanyang and a beautiful city card of Nanyang, thousands of Nanyang residents look forward eagerly to the development. The design must adhere to the “full city culture, half city water” concept, to extend to Yahekou Reservoir in the upstream and Baihe Navigation Port in the downstream. To consider the inland river system in the central city, integrate Dushan Scenic Area in the plan to connect the mountains and rivers, so that the city is in the mountains and rivers, and the mountains and rivers are in the city, so as to build a landscape and garden city. It is necessary to adhere to the government's leadership and market operation, accelerate the pace of construction, and make every effort to build the both banks of Baihe River into Nanyang's competitive highlights, enhance the city's taste, and display Nanyang's image.

Nanyang is an important transportation hub in the central region approved by the State Council.
