The phrase "all-for-one" tourism has been a hot topic in the news lately as Premier Li Keqiang mentioned it in the Government Work Report he delivered at the fifth plenary session of the 12th National People's Congress. He called for improved tourist facilities and services, and for a big push to develop rural tourism, recreational tourism and “all-for-one" tourism.
The Shiguai district of Baotou has been selected as one of the demonstration areas for “all-for-one” tourism thanks to its efforts in the upgrading and integration of tourism resources, public services, systems, mechanisms, regulations and policies to boost economic development by using tourism as the new engine for growth.
