Cong Richen, head of the expert group of the Science and Technology Mission, delivered a speech
In view of the development of osmanthus industry in Xianning City, the experts of the service group put forward several suggestions: We should thoroughly study and solve the harm caused by diseases and insect pests to ancient osmanthus trees, and do a good job in the protection of ancient osmanthus trees. Scientific planning and top-level design are needed to enlarge and strengthen the core production areas and industries of osmanthus fragrans. According to the needs of the rapid development of the city, the trees for landscaping should be used scientifically to further enhance the image and quality of the city. Osmanthus fragrans scenic spots should make full use of natural resources, blend in the experience links with a sense of ceremony, make good use of theme elements, tell stories of osmanthus fragrans, and truly retain tourists. We should pay attention to the development of osmanthus cultural and creative products, actively declare new resources and foods, actively strive for the "most beautiful ancient tree villages", and promote the integration and development of osmanthus primary, secondary and tertiary industries to better benefit the people.
Zeng Guoping, Chairman of Xianning CPPCC, presided over the meeting
Zeng Guoping, Chairman of Xianning CPPCC, on behalf of Xianning, thanked the Chinese Society of Forestry for its strong support for the development of Xianning osmanthus industry, and hoped that the Chinese Society of Forestry would actively give advice and technical guidance for the development of Xianning osmanthus industry.

Xianning is rich in osmanthus resources. There are more than 2,000 ancient osmanthus trees over 100 years old in the city, accounting for more than 90% of the ancient osmanthus in China, and more than 10,000 osmanthus trees over 50 years old. At present, there are varieties of Jingui, Yingui, Dangui and Sijigui, with nearly 40 native osmanthus varieties and 88 planted osmanthus varieties. The annual output of fresh sweet-scented osmanthus is about 3 million kilograms, and more than 200 million seedlings have been planted, achieving a comprehensive output value of more than 700 million Yuan. Since the beginning of this year, Xianning City has completed the target design of "China Osmanthus fragrans City". It is planned that through ten years of construction, the city's modern base of high-yield and high-efficiency osmanthus fragrans will reach 300,000 mu, and the area of other fragrant flower plants will reach 500,000 mu. The resources, science and technology, industry, culture and brand of osmanthus fragrans will lead the world. Key projects have been completed and brought into full play, with a strong osmanthus culture atmosphere, and the output value of the whole osmanthus industry chain has reached 30 billion Yuan.
