The National Botanical Garden is a comprehensive institution that integrates functions such as off-site conservation of plants, scientific research, scientific communication, landscape and horticultural exhibition, and sightseeing or leisure. It is not only a national base for plant diversity protection, but also an important indicator of a country's sustainable economic, technological, cultural, ecological, and social development level.
During the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, president Xi Jinping said it has started building a national botanical garden system in places including Beijing and Guangzhou, Guangdong province. In August 2023, Xining National Botanical Garden was listed as a candidate garden for the National Botanical Garden. Xining National Botanical Garden' s Construction is an important measure of implementing guiding principles set forth by above speech and the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.
