Xiaosha sub-district in Dinghai district of Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province has in recent years been making efforts to leverage its cultural resources as part of efforts to achieve common prosperity. 

For example, the sub-district has taken advantage of its connection with Sanmao to develop its cultural tourism industry. Sanmao was the pen name of the late Echo Chan, a Chinese contemporary novelist, writer and translator from Taiwan. Her ancestral residence which was built by her grandfather is in the Miaoqiao village within the sub-district and she was best known for her book Stories of the Sahara

Over the past few years, sub-district authorities have upgraded Sanmao's ancestral residence, built a Sanmao prose award exhibition hall, rebuilt a cultural park and built a new street themed on literature. 

Authorities have also set up a 740-square-meter cultural and creative fair to provide new travel experiences for tourists. 

In addition, authorities have been working to provide better services for local leading enterprises to help them attract more talents, which is key to achieving upgrading and transformation. 

These companies have in turn created more jobs for locals and established cooperative ties with Dazhou city in Southwest China's Sichuan province to aid common prosperity efforts.
