China's western Gansu, Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces have teamed up to boost tourism around the Qinling Mountain Range, a major landmark dividing the country's north and south.

According to a statement signed among provincial tourism authorities on Monday, 18 cities of the three provinces will set up an eco-tourism ring to further tap local tourism resources, draw sightseers from around the world and give a major boost to the regional economy.

The group's first step will be to invite specialists from the global tourism industry to map out a plan for the development of a shared tourism market along the Qinling Mountain Range.

The projected common market will allow local travel services to operate interprovincial routes to make it easier for tourists to travel across the three provinces, said Zhang Shizhen, deputy chairman of the Gansu provincial committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
