Wang Ping, President of Chamber of Tourism of All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce and Wang Mingang, the first Deputy President participated into the World Travel Market 2004 in London on invitation. They had exchanged ideas on the world economy and tourism hot issues with the leaders from the international industry, commerce and tourism community during their presence in the forum and the banquet organized by World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).

 

President Wang Ping made a keynote speech.

 

At the invitation of the President of World Travel Market and Mr. Jean-Claude Baumgarten, the President of World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), Wang Ping, President of Chamber of Tourism of All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce and Wang Mingang, the first Deputy President participated into the activities organized by the two international organizations in London from November 8 to 11, 2004.

 

The World Travel Market was a world-class travel expo held in London annually. All the countries and regions in the world had designated their VIPs and other people in the cultural field to the expo. In the Asia exhibit area of the expo, the South East Asian countries had sent their unique delegations to publicize their countries. Some countries had sent beauties to the expo, some had sent souvenirs with their national characteristics and others had showed their national dances and play, so as to make the audience have a strong impression on these countries. After visiting the World Travel Market, the two presidents were deeply impressed and concluded that: “as for the tourism industry, it has become an inevitable trend in the recent international tourism promotion effort, namely the administrations of various countries publicize their country in the world market so as to attract tourists and investment. And this method is very effective.” But regrettably, in the China exhibit area, only few regions had made promotion efforts using very boring method. And it was hard to have a general image towards the entire Chinese tourism.

 

According to the practice, there is forum during each session of the World Travel Market. In this session, the 5th Global Travel and Tourism Forum came with the topic being “the Great Potential of Travel and Tourism”. More than 500 authorities from different parts of the world in the industry and commerce community participated into the forum. The moderator had specially introduced Madam Wang Ping, as she was the first from PRC in the Forum, representing the private travel businesses in China. The other delegates were quite surprised to her presence and had showed great interests. The organizer of the forum had also specially given Madam Wang Ping the opportunity to deliver keynote speech as the President of Chamber of Tourism of All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce during the Forum. There are altogether 5 speakers for this session of forum, President Wang Ping, Deputy President Wang Mingang, the Tourism Minister of Indian Government, and the presidents from the world-renowned travel related institutions.

 

President Wang Ping made the keynote speech with the theme being “the current situation and investment opportunity of tourism in China”, which had attracted wide attention from the participants. She introduced the current situation of the rapid developing tourism in China especially the non-public tourism, by showing specific statistics. She also took the journalists’ questions regarding the current situation of China’s private tourism economy. The speeches by the two female speakers, namely Madam Wang Ping and Indian Tourism Minister were the highlight of the forum. With profound understanding to their national tourism and strong national sense, the two female introduced their respective countries, which were neighbors and boasted with great potential travel market. Through clashes and agreements in their arguments, the participants had a vivid picture of the Chinese non-public tourism businesses. A lot of renowned business representatives extended their congratulations to Wang Ping and Wang Mingang. They said this was the first time for them to have such a face-to-face opportunity to listen to the vivid introduction from the Chinese tourism community. And they had sent their best wishes to the Chinese tourism market. BBC made a live show of the forum to the whole European region. The news that evening also reported the forum.

 

During the forum, the two Presidents joined in the leaders from the industry and commerce community present at the World Travel Market to have lunch dinner on the luxurious oil tank on the Thames. They were also invited to take part in the annual banquet organized by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).

 

The members of World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) are the Chairmen and CEOs from 100 large travel businesses in the world. It is a unique organization in the world, representing the private businesses in tourism community. The main purpose of WTTC is to raise each country’s awareness towards the great driving force from travel and tourism to economic development. Promote employment in this area, and raise the proportion of travel and tourism to about 10% of each country’s GDP. Encourage the various governments to formulate the industrial polices favorable to the sustainable development of their travel and tourism. Facilitate the development of non-public economy. During their stay in London, President Wang Ping and Deputy President Wang Mingang held two times of work conversation with Mr. Jean-Claude Baumgarten, the President of World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and signed a work agreement regarding close cooperation between the two organizations.
