Local authorities in southwest China's Guizhou Province has started implementing a plan to produce "canned air" as a part of its efforts to boost tourism after President Xi Jinping joked about the province's clean air during the recent two political sessions, China News Service reports.

Guizhou, which is renowned as a bastion of nature in the country, boasts a clean environment.

President Xi Jinping encouraged Guizhou Province to pay more attention to ecological conservation when joining a panel discussion with lawmakers from the province at the recent two political sessions.

Showing a sense of humor, Xi said the air in Guizhou is so clean it could be canned and sold.

The local government will solicit creative plans of "canned air" from the global public in the coming week.

"The potential business for 'canned air' is enormous and is not only limited to the tourism industry. It also can be expanded into the health industry, specialty industry, and carbon credit trading", said Fu Yingchun, director of the Tourism Bureau in Guizhou.

The first line of "canned air" products will be marketed as tourist souvenirs before June 20, with the air coming from Mount Fanjing, the top ecological tourist destination in the province.
