IIPT dedicates Danzhai Wanda Village in China as Global Town of Peace

Danzhai Wanda Village, Guizhou, China was recently dedicated by the International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT) as a Global Town of Peace. Haybina Hao, Honorary Mayor of the Village worked hard to achieve this distinction and the ceremony was also co-ordinated by her. Hao’s primary goal was to create international awareness of Danzhai Wanda Village as a tourism destination which would in turn help in poverty alleviation in the village. In the week-long ceremony, Hao focused on achieving ‘A dialogue between Danzhai and the World’; it also featured greetings videos and letters from 11 international destinations and tourism organisations congratulating Danzhai Wanda Village for its success in attracting about 3 million visitors in a time spanning less than 6 months since July 2017.

Hao, formerly the Vice President, International Development, U. S. Tour Association, played a significant role in increasing tourism from China to the United States and assisted in establishing a tour operator’s reception system for inbound Chinese tourists. 

While dedicating Danzhai Wanda as an “IIPT Global Town of Peace” Louis D’Amore, Founder and President, IIPT, said, “The founders and administrators of Danzhai Wanda are to be congratulated on their impressive award winning achievements in such a short span of time. As 2017, is the UN International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development and Peace, of particular significance is Danzhai Wanda’s contribution to UN Sustainable Development Goals one and four: to reduce poverty and provide for quality education. As a result of your efforts, 40,000 lives have been enhanced, raising each of them above the poverty line. And with the dedication today of Danzhai Wanda as an IIPT Global Town of Peace – your contribution to UN Sustainable Development goal sixteen – to nurture peace and mutual understanding.”
