After the Opening Ceremony, the participating journalists went to Tanghe County, Xixia County, Xichuan County and other places in Nanyang to explore the TCM culture and learn about its industrial development so as to facilitate the revitalization of TCM and the construction of a healthy China.
As the birthplace of Zhang Zhongjing, a medical sage, and one of the main birthplaces of TCM culture, Nanyang gives full play to the advantages of TCM resources and Zhang Zhongjing culture to build a leading TCM industrial hub in China and even the world, the reputed city of TCM in China, and Henan's center for TCM culture inheritance and development.
