BEIJING, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- Rural tourism in China is becoming an increasingly important industry in the country's fight against poverty, an official from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism said Wednesday.

The central budget invested 6.5 billion yuan (around 991 million U.S. dollars) in 656 infrastructure projects to boost rural tourism in poor areas in recent years, said Shan Gangxin, an official with the ministry's resource development department.

The ministry has also been deepening cooperation with banks over financial assistance to the industry, with the banks issuing nearly 70 billion yuan in loans, Shan added.

Amid efforts to promote the industry's development, the government has announced a list of 1,000 key villages with prosperous rural tourism, with 225 of them being poverty-stricken, Shan said, noting that the move has helped the poor villages nurture a number of quality rural tourism brands.

"A total of 300 new tourism routes have also been launched this year," Shan added.

Moreover, the government has set up five training centers for fighting poverty by developing rural tourism and trained more than 8,000 people.

Due to COVID-19, such training has gone online in 2020. More than 650,000 people have taken the online courses so far, figures from the ministry show.

 

北京,12月23日(新华社)——中国文化和旅游部官员周三表示,乡村旅游正在成为中国抗击贫困的一个日益重要的产业。


近年来,中央预算投资65亿元人民币(约9.91亿美元)在656个基础设施项目上,以促进贫困地区的乡村旅游,人力资源和社会保障部资源开发司官员单钢新说。


单霁翔还表示,环保部也一直在深化与银行在金融援助行业的合作,银行发放了近700亿元贷款。


单宁表示,为了促进乡村旅游产业的发展,政府公布了1000个乡村旅游重点村名单,其中225个乡村旅游重点村处于贫困状态。单宁指出,这一举措帮助贫困乡村培育了一批优质乡村旅游品牌。


单霁山补充说:“今年已经开通了300条新的旅游线路。”


此外,政府还通过发展乡村旅游建立了5个扶贫培训中心,培训了8000多人。


由于新冠肺炎疫情的影响,此类培训将于2020年上线。教育部的数据显示,到目前为止,已有超过65万人参加了网络课程。
