Vice President of ITSA



我很荣幸来到此次峰会,来和各位共享,据世界联合国的旅游增长的统计,南洋,日本和中国大陆,特别是,推动旅游业的增长在亚太地区,现在占超过22 +的国际旅游交通




Over one billion people travel to global destinations, according to the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) barometer. Southeast Asia, Japan, and mainland China, especially, drive tourism growth in the Asia-Pacific region which now accounts for over 22+ of the international tourist traffic worldwide.

Many destination, DMOs or city governments in developing nations are struggling with tactical tourism planning and execution, market research, low-quality signage and interpretation (i.e., “Chinglish”), and failure to leverage social media and the Internet.

In our times cities and urban areas play more and more important role as places providing living conditions, leisure, entertainment and working opportunities. Besides, urban areas became the primary destination for domestic and foreign tourists alike. We can say that the so called Tourist Town became a tourist product. Tourist Towns make breakthrough in ecological preservation and cultural inheritance. We can observer, however, many successful tourism-oriented town development models.

T20 represents the most famous 20 Tourist Towns and T has triple meanings of Top, Tourist and Town. The summit provides intelligence support for sustainable development through initiating and founding the “T20 World Top Tourist Town Alliance”. I would like to say thank you for Jilin Provincial People’s Government and International Tourism Studies Association (ITSA), Jilin Provincial Tourism Administration and Changbai Administration Committee, BES Tourism Consulting Group and Tuniu Tourism Internet for working hard to make this great event happen.

The summit’s theme is “Improve Tourist Towns Alliance, Share Ecoligical Civilization Inheritance”. We are discussing three key topics, namely 1) Tourist Towns in the Belt and Road Initiative to Improve Communication & Cooperation; 2)  Integrated Development of Tourist Towns; and 3) Characteristics Shaping of Tourist Towns.

I would like to introduce one of the leading associations in tourism and hospitality. International Tourism Studies Association (ITSA) invited leading scholars from all around the world. ITSA’s mission is not only to bridge the gaps in tourism research, education, and practice. ITSA is committed to international tourism and hospitality leadership. 

Scholars and practitioners can collaborate, share new data and research findings, and learn about consultancy opportunities. Our members are working to make global tourism and hospitality an experience of “seeing through new eyes.
