A photo exhibition showcasing the scenery and history of the Qiantang River, the mother river for people in Zhejiang, opened at the Zhejiang Exhibition Hall in the province's capital city Hangzhou on April 15.
The Qiantang River is the cradle of local culture and has played an important role in the development of Zhejiang, as well as the livelihood of its people.
As the year 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, this event is being held to celebrate this milestone, highlighting the changes in people's lives, along with the river and the environment over the past century.
