China's newest city Sansha to turn 1 year old


07:57, June 21, 2013

Sansha (CNS) — Sansha city in China's southernmost province of Hainan is to turn one-year-old next month.

Sansha, the smallest prefecture-level city by both population and land area in China, has jurisdiction over an area of more than 2 million square kilometers, most of which is water.

The city government is seated on Yongxing Island of the Xisha Islands. The island has its own infrastructure, such as a post office, bank, supermarket, and hospital.

Fu Qixiong, who has worked on "Qiongsha III" -- the unique supply ship of Sansha -- for 35 years, witnessed the changes of the city.

"I feel the changes every time I come here," said Fu. "It is looking more like a city day after day."

"The opportunity to work in the southernmost of our country is quite a blessing for me," said one worker surnamed Li, a native of Hunan. He said he is proud to be part of the initial builders of the new city.

"A full-fledged city is gradually taking shape," said a man surnamed Yu, who is also a worker in the city.
