On 12 September, China (Hunan) International Tourism Festival 2009 co-hosted by China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) and Hunan Provincial People's Government  opened grandly in Juzizhoutou in Changsha city,the largest island of inland river cities in the world.

Hu Biao, Chairman of Hunan Provincial CPPCC awarded the city of Changsha with a memorial token as the host city of the opening ceremony of China (Hunan) International Tourism Festival 2009.


On the opening ceremony, a cooperation agreement signing ceremony on city tourism in famous rivers and continents of the world was held. Changsha, boasting Juzizhou, the largest island of inland river city in the world, sought cooperation in tourism with the 5 well-known tourism cities endowed with rare water-land islands: Washington D.C., Annapolis in Maryland, USA, Vienna in Austria and Rio De Janeiro in Brazil. This was the first alliance among the representatives of cities famous for water-land all over the world. When these representatives together turned the crystal ball, symbol of the earth, an airship symbolizing “a round tour to the whole world” flew slowly over the starlit sky, implying the starting of a pleasant cooperation.
