CHENGDU: The bamboo industry is thriving in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Last year, the output value of the bamboo industry totaled 14.9 billion yuan (2.15 billion U.S. dollars) in Sichuan's Yibin City, which accounted for 32.4 percent of the province's total, according to figures released at China (Yibin) International Bamboo Industry Development Summit & Trade Fair which closed on the weekend, reports Xinhua.

The local government has decided to invest 100 million yuan each year in the following three years to support the development of the industry.
