Last year, the meeting of Haikou Municipal Government agreed to introduce the World Tourism Exchange China (Haikou) 2019 which would be held at the Haikou International Convention & Exhibition Center from October 21st to 24th, 2019. Under the background of institutional adjustment and integration of culture and travel, WTE is not only a good opportunity for promoting Haikou to the international community and developing inbound tourism, but also a major step for Haikou to face the international market directly and to enter into global stage. On November 21st, the international guests who were the first to arrive in Haikou departed from the Haikou Marriott Hotel and began to investigate the tourist route products and tourist attractions of various themes in and around Haikou. After a day and a half of field trips, the international guests have an initial understanding of tourism resources in Haikou. The Bureau of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television and Sports of Haikou City seized the opportunity to hold a symposium on the development of China’s inbound tourism. The local tourism companies in Haikou exchanged opinions with international guests on the ideas of international market development, product development and upgrading in the most refined language.
At the symposium, people of the tourism industry worked together to release the development potential of inbound tourism. Through exchanges with international guests, new perspectives and new ideas for local tourism companies to explore the international market have been opened; the needs of the international market have been understood to grasp the buyer market segment and higher requirements for international products more accurately. In order to step into a higher international stage, the Haikou people engaging in tourism are open-mined to embrace the hugs and smiles all around the world with their enthusiasm and broad heart!
After the meeting, Wang Rulong, the Party Secretary of Haikou Municipal Bureau of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television and Sports, expected that local enterprises could actively communicate and exchange ideas during the WTE China to enable the international guests to feel the ocean with the coconut palm from Hainan Island as well as the professionalism and enthusiasm of the practitioners in the tourism industry.
