The delegates of National People’s Congress and the members of National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference that belong to the Commerce Chamber of Tourism, together with the leaders of China National Tourism Administration held a meeting to accelerate the development of non-state tourism

 

On March the 12th, 2004, in the evening, the delegates of National People’s Congress and members of National Committee of the Chinese People’s political Consultative Conference that came to Beijing to attend the “Two National Conference” and belong to the Commerce Chamber of Tourism, during their precious rest time, joined together and held a meeting with the leaders of National Tourism Administration to accelerate the development of non-state tourism.

Chairman Hu Jintao delivered a speech in the late meeting, and said that, “we should persistently strengthen and develop public sector of economy, and unwaveringly encourage, support and conduct the non-public sector. It is our constant policy to vigorously promote and conduct the non-public sector of economy.” The speech encouraged all the delegates and members. And the clauses to protect the separate property in the Amendment of Constitution also gave confidence to the entrepreneurs of non-state enterprises. They’ve assured of the communist party’s resolution to promote the non-public sector. As the participants of non-state tourism, they are longing for the development and exploration of the week non-state tourism in being. By attending the meeting and participating the discussion of policy, they came to contribute their efforts to regulate the tourism market and develop the non-state tourism.

The prologue given by the chairmen of commerce chamber of tourism, Wang Ping, also the member of National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the member of the standing committee of All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, expressed the wish of all the non-state enterprises’ leaders that were present. After the 16th conference of China’s Communist Party, all the districts and regions attach great importance to the development of non-public sector of economy, and policies were made to promote it in many places. However, in terms of the whole nation, our non-state tourism is week and unbalanced, and there are still many restrictions for its development. Under the leadership of Communist Party of China and All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, by re-integrating resources of non-state tourism, the Commerce Chamber of Tourism is drawing together all the non-state traveling enterprises for its fast development. World Tourism Organization has predicted for several times that until 2020, China will become the largest traveling destination in the world. Tourism plays a more and more important role in the development of world economy, in order to have a foothold in it, China should be well-prepared. During the preparation, the Commerce Chamber of Tourism needs the support, instruction and assistance of the national administrations of tourism. And the enterprises need to keep communication with the government. During the “Two National Conferences”, both chairman Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao had said so many encouraging words that hightened the morale of all.

The vice director general of China National Tourism Administration who in charge of the traveling market, presented himself in the meeting. He said, when we were informed that the delegates of National People’s Congress and members of National Committee of the Chinese People’s political Consultative Conference would visit our China National Tourism Administration, we began to attach great importance to this, and director general He Guangwei asked me to come. It is welcomed to make suggestions from all aspects. And if you need our assistance, we will write down carefully and have a discussion with you.

Chairman Wang Ping, on behalf of the Commerce Chamber, gave a presentation of its last year’s performance and this year’s focal point of work. The Chamber carried out the decision of the 16th Conference of the Communist Party and exploited new ways of working.

After Chairman Wang Ping asked for the professional instructions given by China National Tourism Administration, and the contact channel without any obstacles, vice director general Zhang Xixin said, “so long as we have the ability and so long as it is good for the development of tourism, we can make it.” He believed that the development of tourism plays an important role in pushing the development of the economy. He agreed that Tourism should be conducted by the government and operated in the market. He encouraged the entrepreneurs of non-state enterprises to divert investment to tourism, and meantime, he admitted that there hasn’t been any big and strong enterprise emerged in China.

The vice chairman of Commerce Chamber of Tourism, Wang Mingang, who has been the Hong Kang delegate of National People’s Congress for three terms, said: although we have seen rapid progress of tourism in China, our industrial is far from optimization, otherwise, the speed could be faster. If tourism is developed, it will be beneficial to aid the poor areas of the country. He gave two main suggestions: one is that China is full of tourism resource, but cultural travel still lacks attention. Travel, in the final analysis, is for experiencing culture. There are a lot of things for us to explore in our profound culture. China National Tourism Administration should devote much attention to it, and work out practical method to apply on tourism. And the other is that we should use the resource of Hongkong and Macao well and make use of their advantages to raise the quality of inland resource. The regulation now is that any enterprise of Hongkong or Macao that wants to exclusive investment in a travel agency should have a registration capital of $50 million. The threshold is too high to enter for nearly all the Hongkong enterprises. Even if we reduced it to $10 million, there would only be a dozen that could enter. And if we did that, it could not only raise the quality of inland’s tourism resource, but also bring the advantage of Hongkong and Macao into play.

The chief executive of Diqing Tibetan autonomy in Yun Nan province, also the delegate of National People’s Congress, the member of standing committee of Commerce Chamber, Qi Zhala, has many original ideas. By employing statistics, he showed us in figures that the development of local tourism could boost the local economy. During last year’s period of SARS, nobody went out, and the local income of mobile communication was only 280 thousand yuan, whereas the income of one year before was 5.4 million yuan. The flow of people and of substance is realized by tourism. The development of enterprises and the amelioration of living are both realized by tourism. And in his points of view, to develop tourism, we have to promote the non-public sector. At present, among the 198 hotels and restaurants, only 2 are solely state-owned. And regarding the sites of interests, a whole line of “Heavenly Boundary and Divine River” is entirely private.

Su Yaorong, the delegate of National People’s Congress from Guangdong Province, also the member of standing committee of Commerce Chamber, is an entrepreneur engaged in realestate, catering, and entertainment. It hasn’t been long for him to enter the field of tourism. When discussing about the establishment implement of tourism rules and regulations, and to help the development of non-public sector, he had a lot to say. Firstly, he emphasized the support of non-state enterprises. The government should has a clear attitude and should attach importance to the plan of all the tourism resources in one district as a whole, as well as the promotion and advertisement of the destinations. Those could not be achieved by one enterprise. He suggested that the National Tourism Administration should find out the way to cultivate and train more senior managers of tourism, and highten the management level of the country.

Su Yaorong also put forward that we should enact “Tourism Law” as soon as possible to regulate the tourism market. And he criticized the disturbance of market in some districts.

At this point, vice director general Zhang Xiqin chimed in, “I take the responsibility for that. I am in charge of the management of the industry. 

Su Yaorong then told the leader of National Tourism Administration that he had applied to operate outbound travel business, but it hadn’t been approved until now and he wondered of why.

Vice director general Zhang Xiqin immediately asked the director of rules and regulations department to write it down and check after the meeting to see why it hadn’t been approved. Approve it quickly if Su is qualified, and if he’s not, he should still be informed as soon as possible. He also said, “If there was any problem in the condition of managing the sites of interests, I can help.”

The vice chairman of Commerce Chamber and the delegate of National People’s Congress from Inner Mongolia, Hao Xukuan is a well-established entrepreneur in tourism and woolen industry. He introduced the present situation of non-public sector in Inner Mongolia. And expressed his hope that National Tourism Administration could treat enterprises in different forms of ownerships equally, and reinforce its leadership. He invited vice director general Zhang Xiqin to his golf course on grassland, also the first one in China, to give him some suggestions. And Zhang accepted his invitation with pleasure.

Liu Jinhu, the delegate of National People’s Congress from Ningxia Hui municipality, also the member of standing committee of Commerce Chamber owns and operates well travel agencies in both Ningxia and Beijing. He hoped that National Tourism Administration could by using policies, attach more attention to the development of non-state tourism in the west, and protect the local culture.

The member of Hainan Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the member of standing committee of Commerce Chamber, Wang Li advised the National Tourism Administration establishing a tourism study institution, training and bring up professional tourism managers, thus to prepare for the fast development of China’s tourism.

The member of Beijing Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the director and manager of Shun Tak Holdings Limited of Hongkong, also the vice chairwoman of Commerce Chamber, He Chaoqiong was then in Europe for business. She paid great attention to the meeting, and sent delegate to attend in order to express her point of view. She shared her views about cultivating new tourism, emphasizing on keeping the touch with global organizations, and raising the inland tourism management level.

The discussion among the leaders of National Tourism Administration and all the members and delegates was comprehensive. The atmosphere of the meeting was vigorous. The highlight of the meeting came when Chairman Wang Ping, on behalf of all the members and delegates attending the meeting, and those that did not manage to came, including Zhang Zhiting, the director of the board of Guizhou Shenqi Group, the member of National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the chairman of Guizhou’s Federation of Industry and Commerce, and vice chairman of Commerce Chamber of Tourism, as well as Chai Baocheng, the director of the board of Tianjin Baocheng Group, delegate of National People’s Congress and member of standing committee of Commerce Chamber, handed over the “Suggestion Book” to the National Tourism Administration, concerning “strengthening government’s support, creating good environment and promoting the development of non-state tourism”. The book shows the resolution of all the members and delegates to carry out he government’s decision to support and develop non-state tourism.
