Sticking to the goal of “coordinated development of inbound tourism” and the principle of “closer cooperation, resource sharing, mutual complementarities and mutual benefits”, the signing ceremony was held for the establishment of the Guiyang, Haikou and Zhangjiajie City Tourism Alliance, targeting at optimizing inbound tourism resource integration and achieving coordinated inbound tourism development.

Guiyang is a youthful provincial capital in China. The city's location makes it a perfect base for exploring the surrounding areas, especially Huangguoshu Falls, the ethnic villages around Kaili, and historic Zhenyuan. In 2017, Guiyang cooperated with American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) to hold ASTA China Summit (ACS). North American travel agents and tour operators were invited to Guiyang, which greatly promoted Guiyang’s tourism image and caused a big stir in tourism industry worldwide. The WTE 2019 advanced further compared with the ACS 2017. European and Asian buyers were also invited this time, making the event more “international”. Guiyang again showed up at the WTE 2019 as a promising tourism destination. Guiyang’s continuous efforts to develop its inbound tourism will surely boost the reputation and influence of Guiyang tourism in international markets and build itself into a new hot international tourist destination in China.
