The World Bank has shot a video featuring a rural project in Huangshan city, East China’s Anhui province, to promote the city's practices.

With a total investment of 900 million yuan ($137.97 million), including a $100 million loan from the bank, the project focused on infrastructure construction, cultural heritage protection and industry development in 68 villages in Huangshan.

The project kicked off in 2014 and was completed six years later, with all of its 25 targets over-fulfilled.

426-km-long rural roads and 364-km-long water-supply and sewage pipelines were built, benefiting 360,000 and 140,000 rural residents, respectively. In addition, high-value-added agricultural production was promoted and more than 1,000 jobs created.

The tap water coverage rate rose from 82 percent to 98 percent in the 68 villages, and the rate of centralized waste treatment increased to 96 percent from 62 percent, thanks to the project.
