Hebei has become a national all-for-one tourism demonstration province, and in that role will build a new development pattern for the industry.
The new role was announced at the third national all-for-one tourism promotion conference held in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, on Aug 3.
Since 2016, three other cities in Hebei province have become national all-for-one tourism demonstration cities: Qinghuadao, Zhangjiakou and Chengde.
Hebei has made great efforts to promote tourism with the aim of becoming a strong city with a well-developed tourism industry.
Hebei puts much emphasis on integrating the development of tourism with other industries, such as agriculture, industry, culture and sports.
During the period of the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020), Hebei will accelerate the development of holiday resorts in some regions near Beijing.
By the end of 2020, Hebei will have invested 100 billion yuan ($14.9 billion) in tourism projects. Tourism revenue is expected to reach 1 trillion yuan by the end of 2020.
The phrase “all-for-one” tourism originated in the 2017 Government Work Report, which called for improved tourist facilities and services as well as the expansion of rural and recreational tourism.
