II. Market Prospects
Zuoquan County is located in the southeast of Jinzhong City, Shanxi Province. As an old revolutionary base area known throughout the country, it was named after the deputy chief of staff of the Eighth Route Army, General Zuo Quan, in September 1942. During the Anti-Japanese War, more than 150 party, government, military, and academic institutions, including the Eighth Route Army Headquarters, North Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, and the 129th Division Command, were stationed in Zuoquan for eight years. The elder generation of proletariat revolutionaries such as Zhu De, Peng Dehuai, Zuo Quan, Liu Bocheng, and Deng Xiaoping all devised strategies here to win battles a thousand miles away. 6 Marshals, 6 Generals of the Army, 19 Generals, 48 Lieutenant Generals, and more than 300 Major Generals of P.R.C. have fought, worked, lived and studied here.
Developing red tourism is to promote China’s national spirit, enhance the coordinated economic and social development of the old revolutionary base area, better carry forward the red culture, boost the integration of military and civilian construction, and build the Taihang tourism brand. Through project construction and development, we will build a comprehensive project that integrates national defense education, military-civilian integration, military expo, poverty alleviation and support, and specialty tourism. We will build the brand of“Cultural Taihang, Eco-Taihang, Red Taihang, Healthy Taihang” across the board in Zuoquan County, and enhance the popularity of Jinzhong Zuoquan Red Tourism across the country.
