On behalf of the provincial Party committee and the provincial government, Jing Junhai extended a warm welcome to all the guests attending the conference, and expressed his heartfelt thanks to friends of all sectors who have cared for and supported Jilin's revitalization and development. Tourism has increasingly become an emerging strategic pillar industry, which has contributed to the people's wellbeing and their sense of happiness, Jing said, adding that we should keep up with the times, ride on the trend, and fulfill Jilin's ten major visions for high-quality tourism development. Efforts should be made to promote the mutual reinforcement between ecological protection and ecotourism development, perfect the modern tourism system, integrate innovative achievements into the whole process of tourism development, create a "One Mountain, Two Lakes, Three Rivers, and Four Seasons" tourism brand, and enhance the reputation and attractiveness of Jilin. Efforts should also be made to meet the people's growing needs for a better life, further improve tourism infrastructure, standard guidance and tourism products, advance the deep integration of culture and tourism, build a large tourism spatial pattern featuring coordinated regional development, and promote the tourism industry to go global.
Jing emphasized that it is necessary to adopt precise measures to promote the high-quality development of Jilin's tourism industry. First, we need to formulate an overall plan to strengthen the tourism routes in the eastern and western parts of the province, implement the ten actions for the construction of the G331 National Highway Tourism Corridor, promote the integrated development of urban and rural tourism, launch demonstration initiatives for integrated tourism, and speed up the establishment of a new tourism system. Second, we need to build strong summer and winter tourism brands, tap the potential of spring and autumn tourism, and form a new tourism development pattern featuring all-season tourism. Third, we need to expand consumption scenarios based on local conditions, and create new tourism highlights for different time periods. Fourth, we need to develop more high-quality tourism products in such areas as catering, accommodation, transportation, travel, shopping and entertainment. Fifth, we need to highlight the integration of all business forms, focus on the "tourism +" model, and effectively set up a new ecosystem for the tourism sector. Sixth, we need to cultivate various business entities, enhance the carrying capacity of infrastructure, comprehensively improve tourism services, and further broaden new paths for tourism development.
Jing urged all regions and departments in the province to enhance the sense of responsibility and mission in their work, further strengthen organizational leadership and planning guidance, deepen reform and innovation, develop a strong workforce, increase publicity and promotion efforts, make good use of the "five modernizations" closed-loop work method, and build Jilin into a strong tourism province with various measures.
Hu Yuting said that the development of Jilin's cultural tourism is encouraging, and the future of building a strong tourism province is promising. We must keep in mind General Secretary Xi's instructions on promoting the mutual reinforcement between ecological protection and ecotourism development, bravely ride the wave on the front of the development of the cultural tourism industry in the new era, focus on the goal and strategic vision of becoming a strong tourism province, vigorously implement the campaign to build a trillion-level tourism industry, and develop Jilin into a world-class winter tourism destination and a modern all-season tourism destination. Travelers, entrepreneurs, experts and people from all walks of life are welcome to invest, start businesses and enjoy sightseeing in Jilin, Hu said, adding that the province will continue to optimize its business and consumption environments, work together with everyone to boost the cultural tourism industry, unleash the great potential of tourism resources, build a large platform for cultural and tourism integration, accelerate the transformation of resource advantages into development advantages, and break new ground in the development of its culture tourism industry.
