The region, consisting of the municipality of Shanghai and Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces, will set up three alliances this year to protect large archaeological sites and archaeological site parks, standardize public libraries, and give regional art tests, respectively.

Meanwhile, the municipality and the provinces will launch ten art events, such as a painting and photography exhibition, a Chinese instrumental music composition contest, and a pop music competition.
