On 7 April 2017, the 39th National Four Treasures of the Study Exhibition was held in Beijing, organized by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce four Treasures and the Chinese Light Industry Federation. In this exhibition, Huangshan City was awarded the title of "Chinese Wen-Fang-Si-Bao[1] Cultural City" and Huangshan is the only city received this prestigious award in China.

It is also a new pivot point of city development on economy, culture and society. Winning this award is an opportunity for Huangshan to play a good role in enhancing industry association, master inheritance and product innovation; to dig deeper into cultural connotation; to promote potential development and cross-border industry integration; to enhance the healthy development of the Four Treasures industry in Huangshan.
