A women-led campaign to promote the role of homestay hotels in the rural revitalization of the Yangtze River Delta region was launched in Pukou District, Nanjing City, East China's Jiangsu Province, on September 4.

The campaign, initiated by local government departments and women's federations, will involve the development and training of homestay hotel hostesses and incubation of homestay hotels in provinces of Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui in East China and Shanghai Municipality. Through further developing women's homestay hotel facilities in the region and boosting the high-quality development of the homestay hotel industry, it aims to facilitate rural revitalization and the country's battle against poverty.
