      Global Times Tourism Forum Pioneering Internationalization Voyage of Chinese Tourism

      Apart from the official start of construction on the Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort and Unsinkable Titanic, the first Daying China Global Times Tourism Forum also garnered extensive attentions in the Chinese tourism community on the same day. Aimed at promoting international communications in tourism culture, the forum is temporarily set to be a biennial event permanently located in Romandisea, Daying, Sichuan. The first forum will be held in the theme of “International Solutions and High-tech Experiences for the Development of Chinese Tourism”.

      Vice chairman of CPPCC and “father of Chinese creative industry”, Li Wuwei delivered a 40-minute keynote speech at the forum. In his speech, he pointed out that creative tourism is the inevitable choice for the tourism industry to accommodate the market demands for new changes as the world entered an age of knowledge economy. The current tourism market has evolved from a “mass sightseeing” age to an era of “mass recreation”, personal experience and “fun economics”. Whereas sightseeing was focused in the past, many concepts have emerged now, such as recreational and personal experiences and “fun economics”. We regard creative tourism as a new model of tourism development in which we utilize the thinking patterns of creative industry and creative models to consolidate tourism resources, inaugurate tourism products and forge a tourism industry chain. It is not a re-classification of the current tourism products or the simple propositioning of a new type of tourism industry; instead, it stresses the renovation and recreation of the traditional tourism development model. It enlists re-shaping the tourism industry system to form an all new tourism development model in sync with the remodeling of the modern society and economy. Li Wuwei explained that it is an excellent strategic choice for cities and regions rich with tourism resources to develop creative tourism in order to realize new transformation of the tourism industry chain and complete the chain. Even regions lacking natural tourism products can boost their appeals by developing historic and industry resources.

      Besides the keynote speech, two feature dialogues took place at the forum. In the first dialogue, editor in chief of Global Times Hu Xijin, head of China News Services Liu Beixian, senior speaker at the “100 Forum” Wang Liqun, independent scholar Sima Nan and editor in chief of West China Metropolitan Daily Fang Ye presented in-depth analysis in the international solutions for Chinese tourism development from the cultural perspective, and proposed their suggestions on how Daying can leverage local environmental and cultural resources to build a high-tech cultural tourism project on a par with the world market. In the second dialogue, chairman Su Shaojun discussed from the perspective of industry development subjects concerning high-tech cultural tourism and international matchup with Executive President of China Chamber of Tourism ACFIC Wang Mingang, Executive Dean of the Institute of Cultural and Creative Research of Central University of Finance and Economics Wei Pengju, and Executive Dean of the Jingshi Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Beijing Normal University Xiao Yongliang among other distinguished guests.

      Executive in charge of the organizational committee of Global Times Tourism Forum, Huang Li noted that the forum is built as a high-level international platform of communications to meet the international development trend of the Chinese tourism sector. “The tourism sector is transforming across the globe, and tourism consumption is undergoing greater fundamental changes in China as well. As tourists raise their tourism consciousness and perception, their pursuits have transformed from simple sightseeing and adventures to personal and emotional tourism experiences. Our tourism sector has yet to follow up with such a conversion of demand however. Landscape and sightseeing-oriented resorts have therefore begun to face multiple problems, such as the decline of appeal, slowdown of consumption growth, drop of economic returns and damages on the attractions. The very reason we are building such a platform today is to fully integrate the domestic and foreign resources, streamline the latest developments in the Chinese tourism sector, and help the sector to promptly identify the latest market needs and accommodate accordingly, thus driving the Chinese tourism sector to develop in the international direction in a more stable way.”

      General Manager of Seven Star Energy Investment Group, Huang Li told our reporter that the forum was held in Sichuan not only because of the vigorous supports offered by the local government and businesses, but more importantly the tremendous valuable experiences that Sichuan offers for upgrading tourism in China. Apart from exchange of international experiences, the place provides a number of existing tourism archetypes for references, such as those in Daying County. In Huang Li’s opinion, the upgraded version of tourism industry is quickly rising in Daying and has already shaped its own unique model that qualifies it to communicate with the world. One most classical product is the Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort that claims 3 world firsts and 2 national firsts.

      “Objectively speaking, the original mountain and water resource in Daying is quite remarkable, but not so distinguished when compared to such renowned resorts like the Valley of Nine Tibetan Villages and Mount Emei. Daying however was able to play up its strengths and avoid its weaknesses by focusing on experience-based tourism. The Chinese Dead Sea is one excellent example. The Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort this time is more of a world-class high-tech experience-based resort that stands on the height of international perspective and fully utilizes its quality resources. This allows Daying to not only stand out from sight-seeing tourism, but also quickly ascend to the role of leading tourism upgrading and remodeling in China. It is therefore only nature to host the Global Times Tourism Forum in such a place.”
