During May 30th-June 3rd, CNTA Chairman Shao Qiwei visited Huzhou and Quzhou of Zhejiang Province to inspect countryside tourism. Shao pointed out that making use of their endowed ecological resources, Huzhou, Quzhou and some other cities and counties combined the development of countryside tourism with ecological progress and the development of agriculture, rural areas and farmers, conducted sound environmental protection, promoted the upgrading of agriculture, facilitated the wealth creation of farmers and improved the overall quality of farmers, leaving much experience worth summarizing and disseminating.
Lying in the northern part of Zhejiang Province, Anji County of Huzhou City is the first ecological county in China and one of the first demonstration counties for leisure agriculture and countryside tourism. In recent years, giving full play to its geographic advantage of being in the vicinity of the Yangtze River Delta and the Hangzhou urban economic circle, Anji has been making great effort to build “the beautiful countryside of China” and develop countryside leisure tourism. By doing so, it has integrated the primary, secondary and tertiary industries for concerted development. Currently, Anji has a total of 164 villages under the “Beautiful Countryside of China” Program and every one of them has their own special product, unique style and outstanding scenery.
During his inspection tour in Huzhou, Shao Qiwei heard reports on the tourism work of Anji and Deqing counties, visited villages and households to chat with villagers, tour guides and operators of country home inns so as to learn in detail the situation of countryside tourism in local areas.
Shao gave full recognition to Anji and Deqing’s effort in developing countryside tourism according to their actual conditions and in promoting ecological progress and the construction of the new countryside through tourism development. In particular, he said that Anji took the urban and rural areas of the whole county as one big resort, drove up the development of the primary, secondary and tertiary industries with good coordination, enabled the local farmers to keep their connection with their lands and hometown while living a better and wealthier life, and allowed residents to enjoy modern civilization while staying in a good environment with beautiful natural scenery. By so doing, Shao pointed out, Anji had achieved well-coordinated development of urban and rural areas, and explored a unique and sustainable way of development for mountainous regions. He hoped that the tourism authorities of Huzhou City can summarize the experience of Anji in an all-round manner, step up their efforts to promote the brand of Anji and the Beautiful Countryside of China, and disseminate the experience to benefit more regions.
During his visit in Quzhou, Shao Qiwei inspected countryside tourism sites in Kaihua County and Jiangshan City, and heard a report on tourism development in Quzhou. He encouraged the tourism authorities in Quzhou at both the city and the county levels to continue their effort to make sound tourism plans and deployment by making use of their advantage of rich natural and humanistic resources, and to promote the development of countryside tourism and tourism for the aged based on special local features.
