Hulu Island in Putuo district in Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province has witnessed significant changes since the common prosperity campaign was launched in June, 2022.
Specifically, authorities have channeled more resources towards renovating residences, upgrading roads and establishing a seawater desalination plant, which will be key to improving residents' well-being.
Authorities said they have identified some idle residences to be transformed into homestays.
