At present, 11 key tourism projects that are part of 10 series of tourism construction projects in Dalian in 2010 are under construction as planned; there are no severe tourism security accidents or complaints about tourism service quality in the area, realizing the “four unities”— safety, order, quality, and efficiency, creating a favorable environment for domestic and foreign tourists.
The evaluation group listened to the work report of the Jinzhou New Area Bureau of Tourism and visited the DDA planning and construction exhibition on class 3A tourism attractions. All group members agreed that the New Area is rich in tourism resources: hills and mountains, sea, sand, rare stones, springs and theme parks; it has done solid work with ideas, actions and achievements; it has played an important role in driving the development of Dalian’s tourism economy with its abundant tourism fruit. They expect that the New Area will consolidate the results, further integrate tourism resources, support and develop bigger and stronger tourism enterprises, open excellent tourist routes, brand tourism products, strengthen tourism practitioner training, improve the quality of tourism and provide more models for Dalian’s tourism.
