Jiaxiu Pavilion, a landmark in Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, was highlighted on the Weather Forecast program of China's national TV channel CCTV on April 13.

The pavilion, located in Guiyang's Nanming district, was featured due to the great changes that have occurred in the environment surrounding it, with clear water, fresh air and blue sky.

The improved environment is the result of Nanming's efforts to prioritize environmental protection and ecological civilization construction.

Statistics from the district show that in 2021, the air quality rated as good or excellent in Nanming district on 98.6 percent of days, four percentage points higher than in 2017.

The ranking of Nanming's air quality among the 88 districts and counties in Guizhou province rose by two places over 2020, and the average annual concentration of PM 10 decreased by one microgram per cubic meter.

Meanwhile, in 2021, the water quality compliance rate of centralized drinking water sources above the county level in Nanming was 100 percent, while the water quality compliance rate of assessment sections of surface water rivers and water function zones both met the assessment standards 100 percent of the time.

Additionally, the comprehensive utilization rate of general industrial solid waste was stable at 98 percent; the centralized disposal rate of medical waste was 100 percent, and the soil safety utilization rate reached 100 percent.
