After the earthquake hit Sichuan on May 12, Sichuan Travel Association has issued a proposal to its members as well as provincial travel associations across the country, calling on them to lend a hand to the earthquake area.
On May 15, STA convened eight tourism sub-associations and the Chengdu Municipal Travel Association for an earthquake relief meeting, asking each of its affiliates and members to stick to their posts and serve the people for the earthquake relief.
