Yellow River|1949–2020, Zhengzhou and Yellow River

Yellow River is the mother river of the Chinese nation. Since the surging Yellow River has nurtured hundreds of millions of Chinese people, this mother river is of self-evident significance.

We must make the Yellow River a river of happiness for the benefit of the people, President Xi Jinping once said.

Zhengzhou is located in the center of Henan Province.

The geographical position of Zhengzhou in Henan is at the center, just as Henan is in China. In the origin and development of Chinese historical civilization, Songshan Mountain area and the Yellow River basin bred continuous and orderly history and culture, which laid the cornerstone of Chinese civilization.

The photos of Zhengzhou by the Yellow River basin in different periods since the founding of the People's Republic of China reflect that the people of Zhengzhou and the Yellow River are gradually moving towards a harmonious development of a living community co-built by man and water.
