                                                                                             Abstract

 

Toady marks the closing ceremony of the 2nd PECC Eco-tourism Forum, which is organized by China National Committee for Pacific Economic Cooperation, the People’s Government of Yunnan province, China Society for Promoting Guangcai Program, All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, and co-organized by the Chamber of Tourism of All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce and the People’s Government of Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan province.

 

Altogether 200 delegates from 29 countries participated into the Forum. Mr. Xu Rongkai, Governor of Yunnan Province delivered his keynote speech during the Forum. The UN officials, the officials from relevant countries, the experts present and the entrepreneurs had also contributed informative ideas. In addition, Shangri-La Common Understanding had been reached, which was a good demonstration to the success of the Forum.

 

The Chinese government has put forward the aim of building a well-off Xiaokang society and the human-centered scientific development concept, which are fully integrated with the UN Millennium Development Goals and its overall coordinated social development goals. Against this backdrop, the eco-tourism has attracted people’s attention at home and abroad.

 

What is eco-tourism? According to my understanding, ecology is nature, which includes all the things existed objectively on the planet. The nature has its own evolution, so is the ecology. Human being is both a part of the nature and the ecology. They will use them and play an important part in their evolution. According to the profound research done by some scientists, with the development of industrialization, the discharge of waste water, wasted gas and pollutants have made the earth lose the capability of self-recovery. What’s more, human being has overdraft 20% of the earth’s potential. Today, the discharge of numerous pollutants into the environment has made the earth lose the capability of self-recovery, and 20% of its potential will never be recovered. That’s frightening! As for the ecological environment that the world people live in, we have set rational standards for ecology recovery. Today, Deputy President, Mr. Xie Boyang is flying to Beijing to participate into a great event. We have been informed that 160 Taiwan companies have decided to make their own efforts in desertification prevention in Baichengzi, Jilin Province. They will plant trees in the millions of acres of desert. They are fully convinced about their action.

Some researchers have found that the grass seeds have several hundred years of survival capability. Even after 100 years of drought, they will survive and grow if there is rain. However, the fish roes are more wonderful. Even after 1,000 years of being buried in the soil, they will be fresh again if there is rain or river. That’s so exciting. It reflects the wonder of the nature power.

 

Let’s come to tourism. Now people pay much attention to tourism after they solve the problem of food and clothing and get rich, they regard tourism as happy time in their life. This is the reflection of social progress and the requirement of human comprehensive development. If human can enjoy the beautiful nature in a pleasant manner, they are in deed in a high stage, and their overall quality will be improved greatly. Therefore, the tourism is necessary and important, and the ecological harmony is an ideal for the civilized society. In the past the Chinese people only have one day off per week, but now they have two days off. At the same time, the per capita GDP of China has reached over $1000, and we have a vast territory of 9.6 million square kilometers. Therefore, there remains great potential for eco-tourism demand. As for the whole world, we are faced by the tourism space as large as the world, and the tourists as many as the whole world population.

 

The main members of China Society for Promoting Guangcai Program and All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce are the private businesses with a lot of entrepreneurs in the field of eco-tourism. When operating their tourism business, they will seek the profit, the benefit and maintaining & adding the value of capital. To do this, only seeking the maximization of profit is out of date. In fact, the optimization of profit should be their target, namely they should coordinate the profit, the material and cultural demand, the healthy development of human being, human themselves and the natural ecology. This concept of harmony between human and nature has been widely advocated back to the ancient times. We hope the entrepreneurs engaging in eco-tourism can change their mind on the profit gained from eco-tourism. It is not only the payment for enjoying and entertainment, but also the continuous input to economic sustainable development and protection of ecological environment.

 

We hope the private entrepreneurs and the world entrepreneurs can commonly promote the cause. Shangri-la is not only a tourism resort but also a lucky place for Tibetan Buddhism.

 

We can conclude that where there is safe tourism, there is peace and development; where there is charming eco-tourism scenic spot, there is people’s ideal home. Ecological tourism and protection of national cultural heritage is the common responsibility of human being. We hope the various governments and all sectors of the society including the businesses and the general public can work together to undertake the responsibility so as to build our beautiful home.
