Taizhou in East China's Zhejiang province has once again been recognized for its livability. The city was ranked 12th in the country in the recently released 2023 China Livability Index Analysis Report at the sixth China City Construction Summit in Beijing.

The report, based on international livability index analysis standards, showcases the progress and accomplishments of Chinese cities in improving livability. It collects relevant city data and utilizes professional algorithms to generate meaningful insights.

Lu Chunfang, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, believes that creating livable cities is an intrinsic part of high-quality urban development. By coordinating urban construction, industrial economy, ecological governance, and other initiatives, Taizhou and other cities are working towards building resilient, smart, and livable modern cities that provide a solid foundation for economic and social growth.

In late November, Taizhou was also included in the list of China's happiest prefecture-level cities at the China Happy Cities Forum 2023 held in Chengdu. This marks the eighth consecutive time that Taizhou has been honored as one of the happiest cities in China.
