Preparations for horticulture expo rolling forward in Beijing

Preparations in Beijing are in full swing for the incoming 2019 China Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition - including the construction of the expo park, which is planned for completion by the end of March.

Set to run from April 29 to Oct 7, the 162-day expo will display the latest achievements in floriculture and fruit and vegetable farming at the foot of the Great Wall in the capital's northwestern Yanqing district. The expo park will cover an area of 503 hectares.

An overall strategic plan for the expo is expected to include seven competitive sections. Various kinds of potted plants are included - for example, peonies, roses, orchids and landscape plants - for display in the exhibition, Jiang Zehui, chairman of the China Flower Association, said at a news conference on Wednesday.
