Spatiotemporal differentiation and influencing factors of tourism economy in Huaihe ecological economic belt

Mengmeng Wang, Yingjia Duan, Yujun Hu


The development of the Huaihe River Eco-economic Belt has been upgraded to a national strategy to provide new opportunities for the rapid economic development of the Huai River Basin. Taking the Huai River Ecological Economic Belt as the research object, this article aims to analyze the regional pattern change of tourism economic development from 2006 to 2018 from the perspective of the gradient of tourism economic development level, absolute difference (extreme deviation, standard deviation) and relative difference (extreme ratio, coefficient of variation). The results show that, from the perspective of time, the differentiation of tourism economy in the Huaihe Economic Belt fluctuates and shrinks with the passage of time; from the perspective of space, the eastern region is a developed tourism region while the central and western regions are less developed. On the whole, the development of tourism in the Huai River Eco-economic Belt is uneven and the polarization phenomenon is more prominent, but the relative difference tends to shrink and the situation has improved greatly.
