The Co-Chair of INBAR’s Board of Trustees visited the construction of the INBAR Garden at the Yangzhou World Horticultural Expo.

Wang Bingsong, Secretary of Yizheng Municipal Party Committee, reported to Prof. Jiang Zehui about the overall planning of the Expo.

Opening in 2021, the Yangzhou World Horticultural Expo aims to showcase how horticulture and greening can be an important part of future urban planning and sustainable lifestyles. Yangzhou, a prefecture-level city in central Jiangsu Province, has a long horticultural history. INBAR will have a space at this important event, similar to the Bamboo Eye Pavilion and Garden at the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019, Beijing, China.

On September 27, Professor Jiang Zehui, Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees of INBAR and President of the China Flower Association, visited the construction site of the INBAR Garden and met with experts who explained the design concept and construction progress. Professor Jiang was accompanied on her visit by representatives from a number of institutions involved in the Yangzhou Expo, including the National Forestry and Grassland Administration, China Flower Association, International Centre for Bamboo and Rattan, and the municipal governments for Yangzhou and Yizheng.

The total area of the Yangzhou World Horticultural Expo is 230 hectares; the INBAR Garden covers an area of 3300 square metres. It is composed of a main building constructed of bamboo, and a traditional bamboo garden.

Prof. Jiang Zehui and the visiting team took a group photo with the office staff of the Organising Committee of Yangzhou World Horticultural Expo.
