Future City #1 in South China Sea! Meiji Island has been recovering for over 20 years, what is current construction status?
That day, I accidentally saw name "Natural Good Harbor", and everyone knows what I was thinking then, right! Now it is unique island of Meiji. Behind its splendor, people worked day and night to transform Meiji Island from original "abandoned" island to dazzling first island in South China Sea.
Currently, China's economy and other conditions are booming, and it is time for small island to be renovated, so our country has made a long-considered decision to establish a multifunctional store on a beautiful island and infrastructure in all aspects of life.
People on island can live and work in peace and contentment, and it more and more lives up to nickname "the first island in South China Sea" given by people. This is no longer "abandoned" Meiji Island. Do you have involuntary doubts when you see these things? Why is it developing so quickly and beautifully?
How many nights are behind this success? What happened to first island in the South China Sea?Twists and turns on road to recovery
The Meiji Islands that we see now are very beautiful, but if you understand this, you will find that their current beauty is due not only to their hard work day and night, but also to its unique and rich geographical position.
And its identity is also very special, not only our first island in South China Sea, but also our country's outpost guarding South China Sea, which is also of great importance to our country's military.
Mischief Reef has a lake. The temperature is very suitable for year-round living. Both elderly and children are suitable for living here. If you build a pond with fish, life will not be troublesome.
There is one thing you would never guess: Under ground of this land, there are very rich minerals such as oil.
If this island is based on a historical development trajectory, it should be discovered by first Chinese fishermen. A long time ago, when other countries did not know this small island, our country's fishermen came here. After entering and exiting many times, they found a good entrance and exit. Fishermen often enter and exit from here, so they give it a very beautiful name - double door.
After Second World War, our country finally regained most of power on island. At that time, it didn't take long for Kuomintang to give it its current name, and people from all over world at that time wanted to play, they had to go to government first.
You can only enter with your consent. However, in 1949, our country was just getting up, and we focused on other buildings. Meiji Island was ignored. This also tells us not to underestimate enemy.
Later, Philippines found various reasons to lie that island belonged to them, and they could return it, but at that time, a decade-long Cultural Revolution had just ended in China.
Therefore, forces at that time were not enough to support us to compete with Philippines. Fortunately, Philippines did not pay much attention to island at that time, and there were no troops stationed there, so island was always unoccupied.
In 1990s, relations between Philippines and United States broke down. This is certainly very good news for us. The US military has officially withdrawn from Philippines. After rapid development of reform and opening up, many opportunities have greatly improved, and we finally have opportunity to use our own strength to change this island.
Do you really want to ask now why Philippines dare not compete with China without US? Of course not! The Philippines will definitely not let him go, so a very long confrontation began between two countries.
Until 1999, my country had built a total of four reinforced concrete houses on Mischief Reef. Thus ended quarrel between two countries. With this lesson learned, we started various other infrastructure projects at Mischief Reef.What is magnificent view of Mischief Reef now?
Our country has a name - Infrastructure Maniac. In 29 years since 1994, we have successfully and unexpectedly transformed this place from an "abandoned" island into a small and prosperous seaside city.
Mischief Reef has not only a unique geographic location and climatic conditions, but also very rich fish resources. In this regard, our country is also using this condition to create more value for this small island. It really doesn't disappoint. The current economy of island can not only support indigenous people, but even receive more tourists and immigrants.
From map, you will learn that area of the Mischief reef is actually small, but geographical position and natural conditions are beyond doubt. Since 2015, my country has started Zhenhai Road Construction Project at Mischief Reef. , but this is a project that is easy to say, but very difficult to do.
However, no matter how difficult project, if you do not give up and persistently look for a solution, it will surely succeed. So, our country started to implement it, and final effect turned out to be unexpectedly good. Now a small island has become a haven for many people, not only that, but also laid foundation for other future buildings.What does future of Mischief Reef look like? Let's see together!
We all know that geographical environment and natural conditions of Mischief Reef are excellent, so they have long relied on fishing as their main source of income, but with development of society and improvement of various facilities, this small and prosperous Sea City may open other ways.
According to what we have learned, eastern and southern parts of Mischief Reef are not yet built, which is a necessary preparation for future tourism industry. It is a small tropical island, it has very beautiful scenery, it is very popular with tourists, and it may become a unique tourist attraction in future!
