      Residence stone carvings and the cork sculpture are objects of admiration both in China and abroad. Fuzhou has abundant hot springs, with good quality hot spring water being supplied to city residents and visitors. Industry is supplied with power by a grid running from the Gutian hydroelectric plant in the mountains to the northwest.

         The Sister City relationship between Tacoma and Fuzhou has been active in academic and cultural exchanges extending back to 1994. In 2008, through an initiative of the City and Port of Tacoma and the Municipality of Fuzhou, the relationship took on an additional facet with the establishment of the Tacoma-Fuzhou Trade Project. Tacoma and Fuzhou now enjoy a formal platform for deepening economic cooperation and business development.
