"Shandong has a long history, profound cultural heritage, rich tourism resources, and its overall scale of tourism development ranks among the top in the country," said Duan Qiang, chairman of the World Tourism Alliance. "The alliance will actively support Shandong's tourism industry development, deepen cooperation with the province in areas including new product development, publicity, market promotion and international exchanges."

At the opening ceremony, the Shandong Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism signed a strategic cooperation agreement with technology giants and online travel agencies such as Tencent, Alibaba, Ctrip and Meituan.
