Strategic deployment has been made to promote the development of culture and tourism, cultural construction has been included in the overall layout of the "Five-Pronged Overall Plan". Cultural self-confidence has been regarded as an important part of "confidence in the path, theory, system, and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics", "adhering to the socialist core value system" and "adhering to the harmonious coexistence of man and nature" have been taken as the basic strategy. During the visit to Sichuan, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that Sichuan is a good place with beautiful landscapes, simple folkways and colorful culture. Xi called for full blooming of Sichuan's unique natural and ecological beauty and colorful humanistic charm, and composing a beautiful chapter of China's Sichuan Province. These major deployments and important instructions provide a fundamental basis for promoting the development of culture and tourism in our province.
Peng Qinghua pointed out that it is the general trend to promote the integration of culture and tourism. Sichuan has unique advantages and great potential. Culture and tourism are intertwined and intermingled. Culture is the soul of tourism and tourism is the carrier of culture. Sichuan culture is an important part of the great Chinese civilization. In the long history, it has formed a humanistic spirit of openness and tolerance, advocating morality and honesty, enduring hardships, trying to be the first, being friendly. It has a strong and unique rhyme of Sichuan. The special care of nature has contributed to Sichuan's reputation as a "land of heaven" and endowed it with unique tourism resources. The magnificent and beautiful natural scenery, the splendid and colorful humanistic landscape contrast and complement each other here, showing infinite charm. After these years of development, Sichuan has achieved a leap from a large province of cultural tourism resources to a large province of cultural tourism economy. The province's cultural tourism industry has ushered in a golden period of development. It is facing great opportunities such as better policy environment, accelerating the formation of large markets and diversified factors. As long as we grasp the characteristics of the stages, give full play to our advantages, seize the opportunities for development and speed up the completion of shortcomings, we will surely be able to create a new situation for the great development and prosperity of Sichuan's cultural tourism.
Peng Qinghua pointed out that we should firmly promote the construction of tourism and culture in Sichuan, and develop a new way of integration of Sichuan culture and tourism development. To build such a ideal province, we must conform to the new characteristics of our country's economic transition to a high-quality stage of development, better reflect the requirements of new development concepts, and better meet the growing needs of the people for a better life. It forms a unique charm of cultural influence, distinctive tourism attraction, high-quality and efficient product supply, primary level of industrial competitiveness. We should correctly handle the relationship between culture and tourism and take the road of integration and development, properly deal with the relationship between undertakings and industries, take the road of coordinated development, accurately manage the relationship between parts and the whole, take the road of global development, rightly conduct the relationship between protection and development, take the road of sustainable development.
Peng Qinghua pointed out that we should focus on key tasks and make continuous efforts to promote the deployment of strong cultural and tourism provinces. We will optimize and improve the new pattern of cultural tourism development in the whole province and accelerate the construction of the core areas of cultural tourism economic development in Chengdu and the cultural tourism economic belts around Chengdu, Southern Sichuan, Northeast Sichuan, PanxiDiqu, and Northwest Sichuan. We should carefully build the iconic brand of cultural tourism and give full play to the leading effect. We need to focus on the integration of culture and tourism, promote business innovation, focus on promoting "culture +" (industry based on culture), "tourism +" (industry based on tourism) and "cultural tourism +" (industry based on cultural-oriented travel), strengthen the protection and utilization of cultural relics, and vigorously develop the "moonlight" economy. We should make the market main body leading the development better, carry out the project of cultivating excellent leading enterprises of cultural tourism, create an "art business circle" and an artistic army with Sichuan characteristics. Efforts should be made to promote the "mending board" (perfecting the shortcomings and shortages of the facilities in cultural-oriented travel) of key cultural and tourism facilities, to improve the transportation infrastructure and supporting service system, to promote the standardization of cultural tourism, and to build an intelligent information platform. At the same time, we should attach importance to the social attributes of culture, speed up the construction of a modern public cultural service system, better meet the people's spiritual and cultural needs, and enhance the people's participation and sense of acquisition in the development of cultural tourism. We should guide the vast number of literary and artistic creators to communicate more with the people, feel different values of their lives life, eulogize the new era, write new epics, and constantly expand the soft power and influence of Sichuan culture.
Peng Qinghua pointed out that we should emancipate the mind, innovate the mechanism and form a strong driving force for the integration of culture and tourism. Innovation of planning guidance mechanism ensures the authority and continuity of planning implementation. Innovation of market operation mechanism and promotion of unified marketing are for the sake of creating an omni-directional and three-dimensional marketing matrix and continuously improving the level of external marketing promotion. We should innovate the safeguard mechanism of essential factors, strengthen financial support, strengthen the construction of talent team, implement the action plan of civilized tourism, and solve the safeguard problems of essential factors such as talents, funds and land use. Innovation and opening-up of driving mechanism is only for strengthening the linkage and cooperation with other regions, elaborately creating characteristic products and fine management services. Innovative competition incentive mechanism is to cultivate and create a number of "leaders" in the development of cultural tourism. We should innovate the mechanism of enriching the people, explore the mechanism of rational sharing of operating income among the local people and the mechanism of consolidating and developing poverty alleviation through tourism, and strive to make the development of cultural tourism better benefit the people to become rich.
Peng Qinghua emphasized that all localities should attach great importance to promoting the integration and development of cultural tourism and establish a strong leadership and coordination mechanism. Party and government "leaders" take the lead in planning and deployment, responsible for the implementation of the responsibilities of comrades, and relevant departments coordinate to form a strong joint force in building a strong cultural province and a strong tourism province. We should adhere to the promotion of project-oriented work and ensure that all work can be done and effectiveness can be achieved and implemented. To promote the integration and development of Sichuan culture and tourism in the new era, the strength has gathered and the momentum has been achieved. We should be confident and enterprising, to welcome visitors from all over the world with a brand new look, and reward the people of Sichuan with a happy life.
