Honorable Leaders of the People’s Government of Hunan Province
Honorable Leaders of Changsha,
Distinguished Members of the Organizing Committee of the World Agritourism Development Forum ,
Dr John Xing , Secretary General of The Friendship Communication Organization of Ambassadors and Madams on Knowing Chinese Culture,
Dear Friends and Colleagues of the Diplomatic Corps,
Dear Representative of the Media,
Ladies and Gentlemen.
       I want to begin by expressing my appreciation and thanks to all organizers of this important event. It is an honor to be with all of you to attend the First World Agritourism Development Forum .
       I want to convey my recognition ,in particular,  to the Honorable Leaders of the People’s Government of Hunan Province, the Honorable Leaders of Changsha , the members of the Organizing Committee of the World Agritourism Development Forum, to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs , the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Culture, the National Administration of Tourism, CCPIT, China Chamber of Commerce, and of course to Dr John Xing , Secretary General of The Friendship Communication Organization of Ambassadors and Madams on Knowing Chinese Culture and his talented team who contributed day by day to the organization of this very important touristic, economic , cultural and commercial event.
       I would like to take this opportunity to express my feeling of happiness and pride of being here not far from the place where was born Chairman Mao Zedong, a true friend of my country Algeria which is linked to China by traditional bonds of friendship, solidarity and cooperation and which is going to celebrate on the coming 1st November  the 59th Anniversary of its Great Revolution, an occasion to underline the  sincere  and important support of  Chinese People and their Leadership to the  struggle of Algeria for its Independence.
       The vision promises that China and Algeria will be permanently friendly countries of fruitful opportunities and common interest.
       The World Agritourism Development Forum will certainly participate in promoting the internalization of the economic and cultural potential of Hunan and will offer to the City of Changsha the opportunity for several fruitful interactions with leaders and people coming from China and different part of the world.
       We believe that the Forum of today is a good opportunity to communicate and share the experiences on how best Changsha could strengthen its position as a key promoter of the happily existing relationship of friendship and fruitful cooperation between China and the world
       We are appreciative of the fact that Changsha aims to develop itself into an international base of Agritourism and we are fully engaged in favor of forging World Agritourism City Alliance and establishing mechanism between Alliance cities to promote common development of agritourism across the world.

       The participants to the Forum of today are showing great enthusiasm for the topics, as an event that educate, support diversity, foster respect, enrich the knowledge, deepen friendship, bring more nearer our people and offer commercial opportunities.
       Agro tourism is an innovative agricultural activity related to tourism and agriculture, which has the capacity to create additional sources of income and employment, as well as the ability to diversify the tourism product and experience.
       Food security is critical for the survival of the human being, and the growing international tourist arrivals will of course create opportunities for destinations but will place additional pressures on them as well.
       The most tourist dependent regions in the world need to produce more food locally and also to import from abroad. A tourist will consume at least three meals per day among other activities and there is a great opportunity and need for a food tourism strategy for each touristic country.
       Consequently, appears the role of agro tourism in striking the balance between food production, and satisfying the needs of the visitors, who travel to destinations to enjoy local foods.
       Global trends in dining and culinary experience, nutrition, health and wellness, climate change and green economies among others are fuelling growth in agro tourism. Increasingly tourists are seeking genuine experiences linked to local foods, culture and heritage and are willing to pay a premium price. This is a great opportunity for all potential touristic countries.
       Algeria, my country has a great potential in agro tourism, including farm based tourism, eco agro-tourism, agro heritage and agro forestry, among others.
       The linkages and partnerships between our farmers and the visitors are strong as our locally produced foods make its way to the menu and delightful meals served to our locals and visitors through our restaurants and hotels. Developing a Chinese– Algerian agritourism partnership could be a great initiative as both countries can share best practices and lessons learned in the promotion and development of agro tourism. In this context I would like to bring to your knowledge that a draft of an agreement to be signed by the two sides is under discussion in order to promote tourism between China and Algeria.
       I would like to cease the opportunity of this Forum to call on all participants to focus on several key issues as they work towards developing a food strategy, these include; highlighting the opportunities for investment – organic foods, agritourism attractions, value added products, Investing in training young farmers, knowledge sharing, research and development, providing the incentives for the tourism industry to procure food locally and intraregionally, and minimizing the impact of farming activities on the environment, among others.
       I wish the Forum success and all of you the best now and in the future .I remain sure that the years coming will be fruitful to the Province of Hunan, to the City of Changsha, successful and prosperous to China and its friendly People.
