UNWTO Secretary General TalebD.Rifai remarked during his speech that the convention was an important move since the launch of the UNWTO Silk Road project. He added that Dunhuang was a historical and cultural city along the line of the Silk Road and had been the link between Chinese and Western cultures since ancient time. Furthermore, he pointed out that since the Silk Road had a long history of over two thousand years, we had the responsibility to maintain its glory and brilliance and make it into a sustainable, globally shared tourist itinerary.

 

Shao Qiwei offered his congratulations to the successful convocation on behalf of the National Tourism Administration and extended a warm welcome to the guests at home and abroad. In his speech, he noted that it was our mutual responsibility to make the Silk Road into a golden tourist itinerary that appealed to tourists worldwide. He emphatically stressed that the development of the Silk Road was contingent upon several factors, including the construction of the infrastructure and the soft environment, the implement of joint marketing and promotion scheme and the cooperation in tourism & technology education as well as in talent exploitation.

 

As chairman of the CCT, Wang Ping delivered a speech on behalf of the national privately run tourism industry in which she pointed out that the connotations of the Silk Road had evolved from the initial Road of Commerce to Road of Communication, Road of Peace and Road of Harmony, all of which corresponded with the general predilection of the worldwide development of tourism. She further commented that since China had become the world’s second largest exit/entry country, more participation and support from non-state-run enterprises would be needed to facilitate the rejuvenation of the Silk Road. To bring the Silk Road to its former glory, she added, the whole world would need to join hands and provide necessary impetus.

He remarked that with the construction of the new Asian-European continental bridge, the land Silk Road connecting Asia and Europe shall rise again; Gansu shall utilize the convention as a juncture to accentuate the highlights of the tourist itineraries of Dunhuang and the Silk Road in order to make Gansu a province renowned for its cultural tours; this move shall entice more people to experience the magnificence of the Silk Road and the profundity of Dunhuang culture as well as the idiosyncratic charm of the land of Longyuan. He specifically welcomed entrepreneurs worldwide to come and participate in the development of local tourism, which would surely add a fine chapter to the chronicle of their win-win cooperation.

 

With the aim to promote the healthy development of Chinese tourism, Chairman Wang Ping, on behalf of CCT, and vice chairmen representing respective enterprises co-signedGlobal Codes of Ethics for Tourism with UNWTO. As the only organization promoting the codes alongside with UNWTO, CCT would lead the way to propagate the conduct among its members and within the industry. Global Codes of Ethics for Tourism was a global initiative drafted by World Committee on Tourism Ethics which was specifically founded by UNWTO; its goal is to propagate the codes to the interested party within the industry and enhance its observation so that it would help the tourism industry to maximize its interest, reduce globally the negative impact on social and cultural heritage and the environment, promote the sustainable and healthy development of tourism and mutual understanding and respect within the human race and push forward the global peace process.
