Regional agriculture is also benefiting from the opening of Wanda tourism town. An agricultural cooperative in Xingren town, managed by Wang Guibang, produces especially nutritious green-shell eggs, and sells 30 to 40 percent of them to the Wanda site in Danzhai.

As the former leader of the US-China Business Council, Dr. Robert Kapp has already helped strengthen economic cooperation between China and the United States over the many years. Drawing from his experience, he put education at the top of his agenda as "Rotating Mayor.". Speaking to students at the new Guizhou Wanda Career Technical College in Danzhai, Kapp shared some of his experiences and offered his thoughts on Danzhai Wanda town's international potential.

After his visit to the town, Dr. Kapp said that Wanda Poverty Alleviation Mode would make a good effort to reduce poverty and observed that it may well have long-term development after integrating with local geographical conditions, cultures and customs. The Rotating Mayor Program will continue to encourage Danzhai's development, relieve impoverished people, and share the town's remarkable culture with the outside world.
