Nanyang hosted a rose pruning competition in which 98 local green hands competed against each other on Jan 12. This was a change from the usual Nanyang winter of sanitation workers trimming diseased branches.

Competitors had one hour to show off their pruning talents at the event which was held in Kongming Road. In the limited amount of time, 35 standout contestants were recognized as "Excellent Rose-Pruning Technical Experts", and five among them were awarded the first prize.

This event was jointly hosted by the Nanyang Urban Management Bureau and Nanyang Rose Association, in order to offer a platform for the exchanges and improvement of the city's landscaping skills.

Meanwhile, this was also part of Nanyang's efforts to polish up its cityscape in preparation for the 2019 World Federation of Rose Societies Regional Convention China which will open in the city on April 27, 2019, according to an official of the bureau.
