Yan'an, known as China's "red capital" for its important role during the revolutionary era, is seeking more "colorful" development besides exploiting its rich red resources.

"Red", "green" and "black" became the key words when Yao Yinliang, the Party secretary of the mountainous city in Shaanxi province, described its fast growth in recent years.

Red refers to tourism, which has benefited from Yan'an's historical significance to Communism. Green refers to the city's continuous reforestation efforts, and black refers to its attempts to tap into rich natural resources, including oil, coal and natural gas.
