The three cities plan to make use of their famous tourist attractions – Mount Tai in Tai'an, the Yellow River and spring landscapes in Jinan, and Confucian culture in Jining – to share Shandong's beauty with the world.
Wang said that a tourism route including the three cities will be used to promote Shandong culture and tourism attractions and help turn it into an international tourism destination.
Experts at the meeting said that cooperation in tourism will also create more opportunities in other fields and help better allocate industrial resources.
To promote cooperation, the three cities also signed a strategic cooperation agreement on collaborative development in culture and tourism.
In addition, 12 cultural and tourism enterprises signed a deal in an effort to expand cooperation among the three cities by establishing cooperation demonstration zones, providing intelligent facilities, and cultivating talent.
