Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture is located in the southeast of Yunnan province and adjacent to Vietnam. Honghe in Chinese means red river, which is named after the river running across the region. The land area of Honghe covers 3.29 square kilometers, with a border line of 848 km. Honghe is renowned as the unique prefecture in China that lives the two major ethnic groups: the Hani and the Yi. Its ethnic minority population accounts for 60.6% of the local population. There are abundant natural and cultural landscapes, as well as original ethnic customs. Hani terraced fields, Lin’an ancient city, Jianshui purple pottery, Yunan rice noodles and Yunnan-Vietnam railway are all the cultural attractions enjoying great prestige in the world.
Honghe Prefecture has long been the support target of Xuhui District, Shanghai. The 19th National Congress of the CPC announced the resolution of winning the battle against poverty, and letting the poor and impoverished regions join the whole country in an all-round well-off society. It is a solemn promise of CPC, as well as a common mission of the whole society. This exhibition with 40 excellent photos will help tourists and citizens get closer to Honghe Prefecture, and know more about its natural resources, culture and customs. With a better understanding of Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, we will provide more focused assistance and win the battle against poverty hand in hand with local citizens in Honghe Prefecture.
