"The City of Courage", the first episode of Dongguan's city image video series This Is Dongguan, is set to be released globally on Earth Day, April 22. The remaining three episodes will subsequently be aired in on European televisions and websites, such as France 24 in France, LA7 in Italy and German business, news and travel media. Committed to sustainability, the southern Chinese city presents the world with a Chinese approach to develop the economy in harmony with ecology.

Unveiling the city's brand-new promotional video on Earth Day 2021, said the staff from Dongguan Municipal Government, shows how it values the protection of ecological environment as a responsible member of the international community. And the first episode explores the way Dongguan strikes a balance between economic growth and environmental protection.

With a large number of population, industrial enterprises, river branches, vehicles, and high level of urban land development, the city now stands to face harsh realities in improving sewage treatment. In recent years, Dongguan has taken a comprehensive and coordinated approach to eco-environment management. To this end, policies and measures have been adopted to lower the number of big polluters responsible for high energy consumption and the inefficient use of resources. Some major polluters were shut down. Meantime, the future-oriented city draws a blueprint for strategic emerging industries that aim to drive the economy more by innovation than by production factors. Its other priorities include the upgrade of manufacturing, technological innovation, and sustainable development.
