Yangzhou hosted a promotional meeting for culture and tourism in Yulin, Northwest China's Shaanxi province on Sept 14.
Representatives from Yangzhou introduced the Yangzhou Grand Canal Cultural Tourism Resort, 2021 International Horticultural Exhibition, and research and study travel routes to participants. Ten special travel routes for visitors from Yulin are intended to provide a fascinating exploration of the history, culture, food, and local customs in Yangzhou.
Travel agencies from the two cities also signed an agreement to deepen cooperation and share clients with each other during the meeting.
Since 2016, Yangzhou has provided assistance to Yulin by providing financial support and carrying out exchange in industry and social affairs to help the city shed poverty.
In 2018, Yangzhou released a set of preferential policies to help attract visitors from Yangzhou to Yulin. More exchange and cooperation have been carried out thanks to the Yangzhou-Yulin direct flight opened this July.
Chen Lingchun, deputy director of the Yangzhou bureau of culture, radio, television and tourism, said the city encourages more visitors from Yangzhou to enjoy its beauty and charm, especially during the International Horticultural Exhibition next year.
