The Silk Road, which served as an international channel of economic and cultural exchanges between the East and the West in the past, has played a major role in the evolution and communication of world civilizations. The Belt and Road, an incisive summary of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, is a cross-regional cooperation initiative put forward by the Chinese government for promoting win-win cooperation and shared prosperity of countries along the route, as well as a continuation, expansion and upgrading of the ancient Silk Road. After the launch of the initiative, it was warmly received and supported by the relevant countries. In 2016, the 71st UN General Assembly adopted a resolution, endorsing the Belt and Road and other economic initiatives, and calling on the international community to provide security guarantee and policy support for the building of the Belt and Road.

The Belt and Road encompasses the world’s four ancient civilizations and three major economies. It has a population of 4.4 billion, 63% of the world’s total, and an aggregate GDP of 21 trillion US dollars, 29% of the global economy. This makes it one of the most dynamic regions in the world. The Belt and Road connects the major tourism destinations and tourist sources in Europe and Asia, and represents 70% of global tourism. As such, it is one of the most promising regions in world tourism development. The relevant research shows that during the past five years, 150 million Chinese tourists have visited countries along the Belt and Road, and 85 million tourists from these countries have visited China, generating over 300 billion US dollars of tourism consumption.
