When actor Gao Xin received an acting job where he portrays a county's Party chief, his first destination was not the shooting set. Instead, he, alongside other major cast members, was required to learn how officials work and live in Lishui county, located in Nanjing, Jiangsu province.

The special "training" to prepare for the TV series Chun Feng You Lyu Jiang Nan An (The Spring Wind Wafts Again Through Southern China's Riverbanks) was revealed by director Huang Kemin during a symposium held in Beijing on July 4.

Set in early 2000s, the 36-episode TV series recounts how a newly appointed county's Party chief leads local officials to change their former stereotypical work methods, ramping up efforts to develop a green economy.

President Xi Jinping's hallmark green development phrase "lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets" is reflected in the TV series, according to some critics at the symposium.

Besides, the TV series also touches on some of China's high priority visions, such as the construction of beautiful villages and deepening the reform of government functions.

Wang Yichuan, a professor at Beijing Normal University, commented that the series has created a dual structure, metaphorically blending the natural and political landscapes to highlight China's effort in balancing ecological protection and economic development.

Presented by Zhejiang Radio and TV Group, the TV series is a tribute to the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. It's now available on China's three streaming sites: Tencent Video, Youku and iQiyi.
