The convenient transportation brought by Provincial Highway 1 and Chu-3 Highway has made southeastern Xinfeng a good spot for industrial development. The industrial zone there has brought much benefit to local prosperity. The opening of the Shibin Highway and the use of the coastal resources, together with the golf course and recreational facilities have made the area a potential spot for tourism.
