Beijing mountainous area covers 10,400 square kilometers, 62% of the city's total area. Yanqing District occupies 1,994 square kilometers, with a mountainous area of 1,451 square kilometers, accounting for 73% of the total area of Yanqing District. The mountainous area is a natural green ecological protective screen of Beijing, the capital city. It is the place of water resources protection and the key region of sustainable development, the important support of ecological civilization in Beijing, the public holiday resorts and specialty agricultural supply base. But it is the most vulnerable area in economic and social development in Beijing as well. With the industrial transformation of Beijing, the ecological environment of the mountainous areas got improved and the demand of capital citizens for travel gradually increased.Farmers in mountainous areas then explored a way of valley economic development in line with their real conditions. As an ecological conservation development region of Beijing, Yanqing is no exception. Valley economy becomes its developing highlight, and plays a leading demonstrative effect.

The integration of agriculture, industry and service trade and the coordination of all aspects can effectively promote regional economic development.
