Feb. 20, 2017 -- The 2017 Gansu Tourism Work Conference opened in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province last Wednesday.
Rich in tourism resources, Gannan boasts the most typical natural and cultural resources in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is known as the “Window of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Outdoor Paradise.”
The local government of Gannan has been taking the lead in building a “no-garbage” demonstration area in what is called “an environmental revolution” since Gannan was listed in the first batch of the national tourism demonstration zones in Feb 2016. Now, it has become a habit of Gannan locals to protect the environment, for example, people use cloth bags or paper bags instead of plastic bags when shopping.
Tourism industry is showing a stronger momentum, which has boosted local economy, and changed people’s livelihood for the better.
