Harbin, the capital city of China's northernmost Heilongjiang province, was listed as one of the top 10 destinations for summer self-driving tours.
That's according to the 2023 Summer Self-Driving Tour Report released by China's online travel service provider Ctrip on Aug 1.
The report showed that this summer's number of domestic self-driving tour bookings increased by over 80 percent compared to last year, a growth of 352 percent compared to the same period in 2019, making this summer the busiest for self-driving tours in the past five years.
"Self-driving tours have become one of the most popular tourist travel options. The growth in demand for self-driving tours and the expansion of the licensed but non-car-holding population have provided a user base for the car rental market," said Song Zhen, CEO of Ctrip Car Rental.
Harbin will invest 11.4 billion yuan into constructing 10 projects throughout the year.
Heilongjiang issued a reform implementation plan for the general application and acquisition of business licenses for foreign-funded enterprises.
Harbin has formulated a plan to build itself into a child-friendly city.
The Harbin bureau of industry and information technology recently released a notice on rewarding industrial enterprises with good output performances.
