3 leading regions in tourism bid

SHANGHAI, Beijing and Shaanxi Province plan to cooperate as inbound tourism hubs, with support from travel agencies including the country’s top online operator, Ctrip.

It is the first inter-provincial cooperation plan for inbound tourism and aims to promote Chinese culture and boost economic development in the regions, government and industry officials said yesterday.

A memorandum of understanding signed by the three provincial-level regions yesterday calls for an annual conference to share experiences and a special fund to promote and develop inbound tourism in the regions.

The hubs will “tell Chinese stories, spread Chinese culture and showcase the wonders of China,” which will boost the economy and cultural development of the provinces.

About 139 million tourists visited China last year.
