● What is the significance of setting up "China Tourism Day"?

Improve citizens' understanding of the nature of tourism

Zhang Guangrui, director of the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that the establishment of modern festivals, anniversaries and holidays is too utilitarian, often only used as a tool to stimulate consumption and swindle people to spend money, making some festivals and holidays taste. It should be noted that due to historical reasons, China's modern tourism development has undergone an unconventional course. In the past, tourism development began in order to win friendship, understanding and support, only considering political significance, and later to earn foreign exchange, and then later In order to stimulate consumption and promote economic development, only economic effects are emphasized. In the past, this was correct and unobjectionable. However, today, the purpose of developing tourism should be re-examined. Because China’s social and economic development has undergone major changes, tourism has gradually begun to enter conventional development.

Zhang Guangrui pointed out that current tourism should focus on national tourism, and it will meet citizens' tourism needs and improve citizens' quality of life and welfare. The government should create conditions for them from the perspective of civil rights, not just the pursuit of a single economic function. .

Liu Deqian pointed out that the establishment of "China Tourism Day" is a good opportunity to coordinate and integrate industries in terms of consciousness and concept.

To play a role in China's tourism supply, and thus play a greater role in meeting the needs of residents, improving people's quality of life, promoting economic and social development, enhancing international friendship, and building a harmonious society. "But I personally think that the establishment of 'China Tourism Day' is not mainly to let the people appreciate the value and joy of tourism on this day, but more importantly, let more people realize the tourism through this day's activities. For the meaning and value of our ordinary people and the country, thus promoting the healthier development of tourism, promoting the continuous improvement and optimization of tourism services, so that more people can enjoy the joy and teaching of tourism, and let the people of this service industry The service is more satisfied."
