A news conference themed around preserving the Party's "Red Roots" and making Zhejiang an "Important Window to China" will be held in Suichang county, Lishui city, East China's Zhejiang province on June 22.

The conference in Lishui is an important part of the province's celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China.

Known as a pilot city of the "Two Mountains" theory – which states that lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets – Lishui has been striving to find new ways to achieve sustainable and high-quality green development.

The city is also home to an old revolutionary area in southwest Zhejiang and is the only prefecture city in Zhejiang to have revolutionary bases in all of its administrative regions.

The news conference will consist of a briefing on the integrated development of Lishui's green and red resources, showcasing the city's preservation of the revolutionary spirit in southwest Zhejiang.

A mini documentary on Zhu Zonghe, an 88-year-old Party member, will be released at the conference as well.

Zhu is the manager of the Suichang Revolutionary Memorial Hall, the former site of the CPC's Suichang branch. Without the company of others, he has been insisting on holding a flag-raising ceremony every day since 2003.

After the conference, participants will visit some of the most distinctive local revolutionary sites.
