Mayor Frank Ross indicated that it an honor to receive the long-term support of WTCF in tourism development in Edinburgh. WTCF played an important role in enhancing the brand image of the tourism city. The original intention of the Edinburgh Tourism Bureau to set up the China Project Team was to offer better services to Chinese tourists and to promote the popularity of Edinburgh in China. During the meeting, Mayor Frank Ross showed great interest in the Market Research Report on Chinese Outbound Tourist (City) Consumption (2017-2018), and learned in detail about the travel data related to Chinese outbound tourists in the report. Mayor Frank Ross also stated that as an early city member of WTCF, Edinburgh will continue to support the activities of WTCF. Edinburgh, capital of Scotland, is rich in tourism resources, while retaining the typical British culture and unique natural scenery. In addition, Edinburgh also has complete business conference and exhibition facilities, and hopes to take this opportunity to learn more about the bid for the Fragrant Hills Tourism Summit, bringing more possibilities for future cooperation.
