Recently, the unveiling ceremony of the Shaoshan Red Culture Tourism Group was held in the banquet hall of Xiangtan Paragon Villa.
Chen Sanxin, secretary of the CPC Xiangtan Municipal Government, and Xiong Jian, deputy director of the Hunan Provincial Tourism Bureau, attended the ceremony.
Xiangtan, hometown of celebrities, boasts profound red culture and rich resources, but its red tourism is still underdeveloped, said Chen at the ceremony. The establishment of the group aims to build a platform for integrating culture tourism resources in Xiangtan, develop leading enterprises of red tourism and make the red tourism culture industry stronger so as to promote the harmonious development of industry, environment, and city.
Chen hoped that the tourism group will adhere to the principle of market-orientation to develop red culture tourism products. The red culture tourism industry should be propelled via the development of leading enterprises. He also urged the government to give more supports.
