The OCT Yunnan Expo Tourism Group and Weishan County signed an agreement in 2017, aiming to better conserve local ethnic culture, bring together culture and tourism, embrace the all-for-one tourism, and develop Weishan into a destination of fame.


This year’s torch festival served as a good example for fusing culture into tourism, and similar events by the OCT were concurrently held in other Yunnan scenic areas such as the Jiaozi Mountain in Kunming, the Laojun Mountain in Lijiang, the World Dinosaur Valley in Chuxiong, and the Hani Terraced Paddy Fields in Honghe. 

The OCT is a corporation based in south China’s Shenzhen City. In July 2018, the company signed 60 plus culture-tourism projects with the prefectural and county-level governments in Yunnan, totaling a contract value of more than 100 billion yuan.
