"Routes on the tip of the tongue":
food and the dream of a Chinese city behind the tour -Meet Chengdu,
communicate with the world and share their new economy.  

See all the love at the event for Chengdu and Certificates of Recognition and Congratulations from Mayor de Blasio
 and Borough President of Brooklyn Eric Adams


In 2010, Chengdu was awarded the title of "World Food Capital" by UNESCO and was the first city in Asia to achieve such a reputation. As the birthplace and development center of Sichuan cuisine, Chengdu has become one of the most important food centers in the world, and the cuisine is a brilliant business card in Chengdu. It not only has China's earliest breweries, the earliest tea culture center, the first vegetable industry base and the first museum of cuisine, but also has a highly developed food industry, professional cuisine agencies and a large number of outstanding chefs. For Chengdu, food is synonymous with "creativity." In September 2017, the 22nd General Assembly of the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) was held in Chengdu. This is the second time the congress has entered China and held the high level conference for the first time in a city in Western China. The election of the highest level of tourism of Chengdu was held in Chengdu, bringing a more international perspective to Chengdu and enhancing the tourist image of Chengdu.


As a world-famous tourist destination, Chengdu is shaping the city brand of "Three Cities, Three Cities and Three Cities": "Three Cities" - a famous cultural city in the world, a famous tourist city in the world and a famous city in the world; and "Sandu" - the international food capital, the provincial capital, the international exhibition capital. In the process of development, Chengdu also proposed "promoting green development and building a beautiful model city in China", creating an attractive business card for urban green development.   At present, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial reform are accelerating the acceleration of human society by irreversible forces. Chengdu also proposes a new urban dream with a focus on the "six new economic patterns", ie, digital economy, smart economy, green economy, creativity economy, flow economy and sharing economy. The "Seven Major Scenarios" of building an economic entity with service entities, smart city construction, science and technology innovation industry, human capital collaboration, consumer upgrade, green low-carbon development and innovative application of modern supply chain. Chengdu people are working hard for their Chinese dreams
 and Chengdu dreams.


"Eat in Sichuan, Eat in Chengdu" - Through Sichuan cuisine, a widely circulated cuisine, Chengdu is famous overseas. CNN food column repeatedly reported Chengdu cuisine. In February 2017, CNN's ace exploration program "Unknown Journey" took Sichuan cuisine documentary. Anthony Bourdain, a famous food explorer, came to Sichuan with Chef Eric, the Michelin-starred Le Bernardin chef, for food adventure. Sweet water, spicy chicken, tilapia fish, hot pot and other Sichuan cuisine and customs displayed in front of a global audience, along with Chengdu people’s love of life
 and optimistic spirit.  


In October 2017, Hainan Airlines officially opened a regular non-stop service from Chengdu to New York. This non-stop "Chengdu-New York" non-stop service was also a "route on the tongue." Through 15-hour flight, the delicious Sichuan cuisine and naive giant pandas will make tourists from New York City feel immediately in Mala Tang the charm of Chengdu. In fact, in addition to the panda and the food, there are many beautiful, historic and relic sites in the city that are worth a pampered
 visit to Chengdu.

The event - hosted by Chengdu Travel and Tourism Bureau, Chengdu Culture and Tourism, CGGroup - a media firm on Wall Street, and NewLegend, a Chengdu cuisine and travel Experience Center - will take you to understand the history and culture of Chengdu, its economic development, tourism and other food information; through rich promotional videos, travel routes referrals to the people of New York and international friends, and high-quality tourist resources, people will come to understand the new dream of a central city in China!

from the Qingcheng Mountain in Chengdu also set out to learn from the West ... Chengdu's cultural resources, in the eyes of Mr. Zhou,can be precisely defined by Wall Street and high-tech artificial intelligence to innovate products to achieve Marketing the purpose of the city. Financial innovation is to Think outside the box. Cultural and creative economy: the same is true.
