The Second West China Tourism Talents (Mayors and Heads of Counties) Training Class, an initiative collaborated between ACFIC and Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation since 2008, was closed on November 19, 2009. 35 trainees successfully completed a ten-day course in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The trainees are mayors, heads of counties, director of tourism bureaus and local entrepreneurs. The targeted areas are: Guizhou, Qinghai, Sichuan, Gansu, Tibet, Inner Mongolia and Beijing, provinces and municipality included in the first training, and newly added provinces, Xinjiang, Anhui, Henan, Hunan, Hubei, Hebei and Liaoning.

Before going to Hong Kong, trainees were briefed for one day in Shenzhen by Director of ACFIC on the status and prospect of Chinese tourism, the newly emerged forms of tourism-industry tourism, tourism real estate and spiritual tourism, and other things ranging from Chinese hospitality industry to how to improve the soft strength of tourism in West China. All these were ridden with the director’s wisdom in this industry for so many years.

Directors of ACFIC attached great important to this training. They prepared attentively the theme and content thereof, and even improved the lectures one day before the training. Despite the fog-caused flight delay, Director Wu Yongjian stayed in airport over 5 hours for timely delivery of his lecture, and did not arrive in Shenzhen until midnight. Director Mu Min also flied to Shenzhen the day he returned from his business travel to Germany. From the first day, the trainees felt the dedication of these directors, and shared their experience in this industry. And these directors’ dedication to Chinese tourism won their awe and admiration.

On December 11, all these trainees, who were longing for their study in Hong Kong, arrived their destination and began their study in Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Before the schedule was given, all trainees were required to hand in a questionnaire related to their academic background and their questions to be resolved so that the training courses were more specific and practical. The schedule turned out to be tight and full. In this ten-day training, they experienced life in Hong Kong, and more important, were immersed in the sea of knowledge.

What most moved and inspired trainees were the meticulous attitude and professional and profound knowledge that instructors possessed. To make trainees easy to understand what they were taught, all instructors prepared PPTs and text materials, and even printed all necessary reference documents. Trainee were so touched that they took a group photo with each and every instructor after each lecture. They scrambled to invite these instructors to visit where they are from, and presented them some distinctive gifts as a sign of gratitude. The considerate arrangement and care for trainees by Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation and Hong Kong Polytechnic University were equally moving. One time, in particular, trainees were advised to carry umbrella against rain the next day. The notice was given. But to prepare for the worst, the considerate staff in HKPU prepared an umbrella for each trainee.

The management of Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation also highlighted this training. Huo Zhenhuan, President of Standing Committee of this foundation, held a banquet for trainees who are from West China. Participants included Wang Mingang, Vice President of Standing Committee of Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation, Wu Shuqing, Person responsible for this project and Vice President of Standing Committee of Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation, He Chaoqiong, Vice Director of ACFIC, Wang Qida, Member of Standing Committee of Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation, Xie Siming, Assistant Professor of School of Hotel and Tourism Management, HKPU, and Director of School-Enterprise Cooperation, Wang Shihua, Administrative Director of China Business Cener, HKPU, Ta Guoquan, Managing Director of EGL Tours Company Ltd., and Miss Huo Liping, EGL Tours Company Ltd.. These participants, upon invitation by trainees, took a group photo with them.

Wu Shuqing, Person responsible for this training class, beat against her tight schedule to attend relevant activities, especially the summary on December 19. President Wu sat in the back row to hear reports, and during tea break, asked trainees to taste cakes she had brought and introduced new friends to them, which greatly touched the trainees. She also hoped that the natural resources and local traditions of West China be protected, and the specialty of ethnic groups be built on to lead grassroots to prosperity and better economic and living conditions. She also invited trainees, from the perspective of tourists, to give recommendation to Hong Kong so that Hong Kong would improve.

Each day in Hong Kong was teeming with touching stories and individuals, and more important, knowledge that brought fun and satisfaction. And the schedule aligned most effectively the disposable time with theoretical study and field study. A diverse range of subjects were covered. They were: trend of hotel and tourism, financial and risk management, environmental protection and tourism, latest developments in cultural tourism, culture and tourism practices, management, strategy in the successful management of hotel brand, management companies in tourist destinations, the international exhibition industry development, management and service. In field study, trainees experienced services in Hong Kong Tourist Information and Service Center, discussed with Hong Kong Tourism Board, visited China Travel Service (Hong Kong) Limited, the ancient and modern architecture, Ocean Park and the night of Victoria Harbor…While experiencing the civilization in Hong Kong, these trainees also had a lot of thinking in their mind.

ACFIC, Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation and Hong Kong Polytechnic University were thanked for giving such a good opportunity on the summary meeting. According to trainees, this was a learning experience. They had been exposed to uncharted territories. And they were greatly inspired. This would give them more confidence, a wider vision and a clearer direction in their work. To them, this training was a bona-fide solution to their bottleneck in tourism.

He Wenhua, Director of Guizhou Tourism Bureau and one of the four trainees from Guizhou Province, said that the key in a faster and better industry lied in nurturing talents, and the key to nurture talents was education and training. Ao Kemo, Director of Fenggang Tourism Bureau, Guizhou Province, used his camera to record all touching moments during this training. Huang Zhiyi, a chairman from Enshi, Hubei, was grateful for this rare opportunity and what he had learned, and decided to apply all he had learned to improve himself so that he would contribute to the tourism development in West China. “Read ten thousand books, travel ten thousand miles” and “Talking with you for one moment is much better than reading books for ten years.” were two old sayings that Lei Yun, another chairman from Enshi, Hubei, used to express what he had learned. He hoped, upon graduation, that trainees in this class would be more successful after this training, and that China Prosper and Tourism in West China thrive.

Three of the trainees were persons responsible from Nazhi District, Bomi County, Linzhi District and Naidong County, Shannan District. They were desperate for this training when good result was produced by the first training. At the graduation ceremony, they, together with other students, sang out Qingzanggaoyuan(Qinghai-Tibet Plateau) and offered each teacher and student hada for blessings and safety. Gesang from Bomi County wrote an article entitled “Memory” after he went back, in which he depicted “my heart was pulsating when I received the certificate of graduation from Hong Kong Hua Pei Education Foundation.”

As Huang Wenjun, Deputy Head of Daocheng County, Zizhou, Sichuan Province, put it, this training made him feel the joy of the saying “Is it not a pleasure, having learned something, to try it out at due intervals?”Gou Yi from Huguang Club, Chongqing also opened his remarks with “When three men are walking together, there is one who can be my teacher.” Wang Xiaoman, Director of Chamber of Tourism Enterprises, Zhang Jiajie, also said something to the effect that he had felt the benefit of education, the sense of brotherhood with trainees, and was to go back armed with knowledge.

Xia Junwen, ACFIC Fuxin, Liaoning Province, made an impression with an article entitled My male friends living together with me and the environment-friendly tie that he wore on the graduation ceremony. Zhu Liangen, Executive Vice Dean of China Folk Museum, thought that the training was short yet fruitful. It broadened his vision, helped him like-minded people and friends, and would be valuable to his future life and work. He hoped that trainees would bring what they had learned to their work so as to contribute to China’s tourism, which is also the common aspiration of all other trainees.

Cao Ling, Vice Director of Shuangqiao District, Chongqing, was quite happy when her Hong Kong counterparts in tourism recommended Chongqing to develop exhibition economy and grow into a paradise of find food. She hoped that trainees would keep in mind what they have learned from this training and apply them into practice to contribute to tourism in West China and live up to the expectation of Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation.

With gratitude and blessings, gains and joy, thinking and confidence and friendship and outlook, trainees of the second training fly back to create a better future for China’s tourism.
