     Realizing creativity as one of the most important engines for its economic-social development, Wuhan puts great emphasis on its development of creative industries with the notions of “Design of the People”, “Design by the People” and “Design for the People”. Such major projects as Creative Valley for Mobile Internet and Changjiang New Town are attracting talent from the world.
