Economy[edit]

Since the Chinese economic reform began in 1978, the people of Shunde were given full control over their geographical position and culture. This has allowed Ronggui, once a traditional agricultural county, to gradually develop into a modern industrial boomtown.[6] Until 2012, the GDP of Ronggui had reached 38 billion and 660 million yuan. The industrial and commercial tax revenue of Ronggui had reached 5 billion and 186 million yuan and the balance of savings deposits of Ronggui's residents had reached 29 billion and 35 million yuan. Meanwhile, there were many famous industrial companies founded in Ronggui. Such as Rongsheng (容声), Hisense Kelon (海信科龙), Wanjiale (万家乐), Galanz (格兰仕) and Wanhe (万和).[7]

Ronggui is also home to the Charming Innovation Center (CIC). CIC boasts a unique mix of modern business and leisure facilities based in the heart of the Xingfucun community.

Tourism[edit]

Shusheng Bridge of Ronggui[edit]

Shusheng Bridge of Ronggui

Shusheng Bridge located in the Rongli Committee of Ronggui which had the history of three hundred years. It was a special bridge made of the root of banyan beside the river. It was said the quondam bridge was broken frequently as a result the villagers drew the root of that banyan across the river and stuck the root in the land of the opposite bank. In the course of time, the root grew bigger and bigger. The villagers paved plank on the root and the bridge was built. This unusual Shusheng Bridge was so solid that it was still used nowadays. And it also became a feature spot which attracted a lot of people.[8]

Guizhou Wenta (Wen Tower)[edit]

The Guizhou Wenta (桂洲文塔) was built in AC 1794. The tower located in the south of Guizhou Lion Mountain and turned in the direction of east. It was as tall as 42 meter with 7 floors. The shape of the tower's body was hexagon. In the last 20 years, the tower stood alone in the wilderness. In 2007, the government of Ronggui Subdistrict started to repair the Guizhou Wenta again and put up many communal facilities around the tower, for example, the library, the swimming pool and the basketball count. Guizhou Wenta had become a new and nice place to go for the residents in Ronggui Subdistict.[9]
