It is also hoped to develop the tourism industry into the leading industry for the restructuring of China's old northeast industrial base, a leading industry for modern service industries, and the key industry for the transformation of resources-based cities.

According to the plan, the major tasks for Northeast China's tourism industry coves six aspects. First, building a tourism product system of sustainable competitiveness; second, constructing a new pattern of spatial development that is harmonious and orderly; third, strengthening the development of the tourism market; fourth, completing tourism service system; fifth, enhancing regional cooperation in tourism; and sixth, giving full play to tourism in the transformation of resources-based cities.

To guarantee the successful implementation of the plan, it is also suggested that a mechanism be developed to ensure the sound development of the tourism industry, strengthen the management of tourism resources by governmental departments, consummate the construction of tourism public service system, and support enterprises to form large-scale tourism groups.
