Held at Jinling Hotel, Jinling Riverside Conference Hotel, and Jinling Convention Center, the 4th China-US Tourism Directors Summit was a great success thanks to the hard work of Jinling staff.

Shao Qiwei, Director of China National Tourism Administration and Roger Dow, President and CEO of U.S. Travel Association were present at the summit as they each gave a speech. Chinese and American professionals promised to continue to work closely with the Joint Declaration on Travel released at the 2nd Summit, strengthening cooperation under its framework by luring more organizations at municipal levels from both countries. They also agreed to have more exchange and continue to promote travel and tourism optimization into the future.
