UNWTO Event Puts Spotlight On Chengdu

Authors: China Daily


Chengdu, the capital city of Southwest China's Sichuan province, is making an effort to develop into a national core city.
It is set to demonstrate its beauty and charm to global guests who participate in the 22nd Session of the United Nations World Tourism Organization General Assembly Sept 11-16.
The six-day session is a biennial event that represents the highest level of conventions in world tourism. It is the first time that the event is held in central and western China.
The event attracted more than 1,500 participants, including officials from UNWTO, ministers of tourism from 150 member countries and other related international organizations.
"On behalf of the Chengdu government and the 16 million residents in the city, I would like to thank UNWTO for choosing Chengdu as the host city of the event," said Luo Qiang, mayor of the city. "I want to extend a warm welcome to global guests participating in the event and traveling around the city."
Chengdu has paid significant attention to organizing this grand event, according to Luo. Many tourism promotion events, such as a Chengdu-themed photography exhibition and a tourism products exhibition, have been organized to demonstrate Chengdu's beauty. Event participants will also have the chance to visit some famous tourism sites in Chengdu to learn about the city's tourism resources and unique culture.
Officially named Chengdu 2,300 years ago, the city has over 4,500 years of civilization history. Unlike other cities in the world, its location has never changed. The city, the hometown of the giant panda, also earned the name Tianfu Zhiguo, literally meaning land of abundance, in ancient times.
