【Introduction】:On May 8, New York local time, hosted by the Chinese Mission to the United Nations and the Beijing Municipal People’s Government, and undertaken by the Beijing Tourism Committee, the “Beijing Tourism Photo Exhibition” first appeared at the United Nations

As soon as the Beijing Tourism Photo Exhibition made its first appearance at the United Nations Headquarters Building, permanent envoys to the United Nations from some countries arrived as they heard the news, and appreciated the beauty of Beijing with great interest. Some diplomats took self-portraits with their cell-phones, and joked it’s their “first trip” and would explore Beijing “in detail” next time.

On May 8, New York local time, hosted by the Chinese Mission to the United Nations and the Beijing Municipal People’s Government, and undertaken by the Beijing Tourism Committee, the “Beijing Tourism Photo Exhibition” first appeared at the United Nations Headquarters Building. There were 50 well-made photos, which depict the attractive charms of Beijing from multiple aspects, such as the spirit of the ancient city, modern fashion, glamorous Beijing, world heritages and so on. The photo exhibition attracted many envoys in the United Nations and staff to stop and watch.

This is the first time that Beijing has held such a tourism promotion activity in the United Nations Headquarters. “Cities are the booster of tourism development”, the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Eliasson looked back of his visit to Beijing several months ago, saying, “I am once again shocked by the whole city’s energy, dynamism, confidence and hope.”

It was introduced by Ambassador Li Baodong, the permanent representative to the United Nations that this is the one of the rare local exhibition activities held in the hall of the United Nations Headquarters Building so far. Beijing is the first city in China which has held promotion activities in this place. As a famous historical cultural city, there are not only the top six World Heritages such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace and others, but also the Bird’s Nest, the Water Cube, the Grand National Theater and other modern buildings which contain so many art elements. For those who have been to Beijing, such things must arouse their good memories; for those foreigners who haven’t been to Beijing, they must develop a very strong interest in exploring Beijing from them.

Lu Yong, the director of the Beijing Tourism Development Committee said that this one weeklong Beijing Tourism Photo Exhibition held at the United Nations Headquarters Building will become a milestone for Beijing’s overseas promotion activities, further showing the rich resources, cultural charms and creative dynamism in Beijing to different countries, expand Beijing’s influence in the world and also attract more travelers in the country and the world to Beijing. Therefore, Beijing’s image of an international tourism city brand will be improved and the progress of building a first-class travel destination city out of Beijing in the world will also be accelerated.
