Jiaxing Chronicles (1991-2010), a supplement to the Jiaxing Chronicles, which was published in 1997, was unveiled on July 22, local media reported.
The book consists of 308 chapters, with 7 million Chinese characters. It records the development of Jiaxing during the 20-year period covering nature, politics, economy, culture, and society.
A total of 120 government departments and 296 people contributed historical materials consisting of more than 10 million Chinese characters to the book.
In addition, the book also records the no longer existing towns, villages, rivers, and bridges, as well as the outmoded grain supply centers and supply and marketing cooperatives to preserve the marks they made in the last century in Jiaxing.
Relevant State regulations stipulates that local governments should compile their own chronicles every 20 years. The final year covered in the first Jiaxing Chronicles was 1990 and therefore the Jiaxing government started work on its second local chronicles' compilation in 2009.
In late 2020, Jiaxing Chronicles (1991-2010) passed the final review. It was sent to print for publication in June 2021.
The latest chronicles will be available in the city's archives centers, libraries, schools, and research institutes. An electronic version of the book will be uploaded to the official website of the Jiaxing Municipal People's Government.
