Proposed by Beijing, the WTCF is a global tourism organization comprised of the world’s famous tourist cities and travel institutions on a voluntary basis. The organization was officially established in Beijing on September 15, 2012.
Adhering to the core idea of “travel making better urban life,” the WTCF is committed to providing services for its members throughout the industrial chain, promoting exchange and cooperation between its members, spreading experience in the development of tourist cities, publicizing travel products and resources, and accelerating the prosperity and development of global tourism.
In the future, the WTCF will continue pushing forward win-win cooperation between cities, between cities and institutions, and between institutions, so as to achieve common development.
