Shao: Sichuan Remains Beautiful and Safe for Travel

Cities in the Sichuan region of China have been hard at work rebuilding after the April 20, 2013 earthquake that occurred in Ya’an City in the Sichuan Province. The head of China’s tourism administration, Shao Qiwei, recently visited the area and declared it safe for visitors.

“Sichuan and Ya’an remain beautiful and safe as before,” said Shao, Chairman of the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA). “Lushan County and Baoxing County are being recovered and reconstructed, and Sichuan is expected to fully open and recover its tourism market. And I, on behalf of the National Tourism Administration of China, sincerely invite friends from all over the world to travel around Sichuan Province,” he added.
