Update:2015-10-03       

  During the 2013 Annual Meeting of Yunnan Garden Industry Association & “Towns and Human Settlements” Forum, Yunnan Garden Industry Association granted a group of cities, including Ruili, the title of provincial-level garden city.

  Apart from Ruili, some other counties such as Xuanwei, Wenshan, Fumin, Yiliang, Fuyuan, Xinping, etc. also obtained the honor. Up to now in Yunnan, there are 45 cities and counties which have won the title.

  With its downtown area achieving 16.7 sq.m, a total population of 1.86 hundred thousand, and a forest coverage of 55.02%, Ruili, which is honored as a jade city, is an open city, an international business and tourist center, as well as a gateway for Yunnan and even whole China’s opening to south Asia.

  On the basis of “improving urban function, beautifying living environments, building waterscape, and upgrading city quality” as well as centering on the objective of turning Ruili into a "forest-like, ecological, and regional centre city”, Ruili attached great importance to afforestation, refinement, cleaning and so on, in a bid to improve living environments, promote cultural intension, embody the landscape of garden city, and provide a more harmonious as well as favorable living environment for local citizens.

  Up to the end of 2011, the green coverage of Ruili city has reached 30.2%, which is about 561.6 hectares in total; and the green coverage of urban highways has achieved 99%, with main highways achieving 100%. According to the requirements of “reasonable layout, various plants, and beautiful landscape”, a scientific and reasonable urban green land system, which is characterized by the logical arrangements and complete functions of different types of green lands, including green lands for parks, green lands for protection, green lands for production, green lands for settlements and so on, has been formed in Ruili.

  Through joint efforts, now an exuberant urban landscape featuring “flowers and fruits all year round” has been presented.
