On behalf of the Municipal Party Committee, Municipal People's Congress, government and Liupanshui CPPCC, Li Gang expressed warm welcome and sincere thanks to the leaders and guest, and sent his best wishes to citizens of Liupanshui. He said that, over the past 16 years, this cultural festival has been successfully held for 17 sessions, and had become a grand event of the local people that enhances the image for the city. We have developed a cultural festival from art exhibition and performance to a cultural gala and platform for exchanges, and from an event organized by the government and attended by the mass to an open platform and stage for the people. Many important matches have been implemented, such as the national rally racing and the summer international marathon. A great number of Chinese orchestras, jazz bands, and other art teams of a mass character began to emerge. The citizens are not only the actors but also producers. With enhanced participation, the sense of pride and belonging is greatly aroused.
Li Gang said that, the cultural festival this year, as updated to a summer tourism season, provides sufficient time for tourists to enjoy the style of Liupanshui and cultural interests. The transformation for "a festival" to "a season" implies the integration of cultural and tourism sectors, which can be mutually complementary. We will further promote the service quality from all aspects including food, accommodation, transport, entertainment, and shopping, to boost traveler satisfaction.
Xu Fenglun said that, Liupanshui Summer 2020 Tourism Season is a large scale cultural tourism event since the recovery of inter-provincial tourism this year, the specific measure taken by Liupanshui to implement the 12th session of the 7th plenary meeting of the provincial government, and a prelude to the 15th Conference on Tourist Industry Development in Guizhou that is hosted by Liupanshui. Famous as the cool city in China, Liupanshui is the most charming city with comfortable weather in summer that attracts visitors. In recent years, the municipal government has attached great importance to the tourism development of the city. In particular, the concept of taking summer vacation in Liupanshui has become a pilot project in Guizhou Province, promoting the integration of multiple industries. We believe that, under the strong leadership of the municipal government, the summer tourism season will achieve greater success and further promote the city as a tourist destination.
Cultural performances were well-received by the audience at the opening ceremony. Leaders also took a souvenir picture with the crew.
Leaders from counties (cities, special districts, and districts), Liupanshui High Tech District, and departments under direct supervision of the municipal government, and representatives from all walks of life also attended the event.
