Lan Fo'an, governor of Shanxi province, addressed the opening ceremony and promoted the province's natural and cultural landscapes.

He extended an invitation to investors to jointly build leading tourist attractions and high-quality tour routes. Lan also proposed developing a complete industrial chain of culture, tourism, leisure and health care – as well as constructing more tourism infrastructure and expanding the city's tourist source markets.

In recent years, Shanxi has attached importance to the integration of its culture and tourism. It has created three major tourism brands of the Yellow River, the Great Wall and Taihang Mountains, and advanced its development as a national demonstration area for tourism.

As the main venue of the conference, Changzhi leveraged its strengths in cultural tourism. It has a notable national 5A-rated scenic spot, 12 national 4A-rated scenic spots, two national tourism demonstration areas and a provincial eco-cultural tourism demonstration area.
