International sports events hosting and the internationalization of Chinese cities: course, experience and prospect
China Sport Science,2019,Vol 39,No. 11
Urbanization and internationalization are two wings of the Chinese dream. The former guarantees high-quality economic development, while the latter improves the international living environment. Since the founding of the PRC 70 years ago, Chinese cities have made unremitting exploration and practice in the holding of international sports events in the tortuous development of internationalization, which brings us historical experience and enlightenment. This paper tries to grasp the external manifestations of international sports events and Chinese cities’ internationalization, and divides them into four stages of development in chronological order, which are named “difficult start,” “getting into a better situation,” “going hand in hand” and “high-quality development.” It also analyses the background, driving force and interrelationship of each stage, so as to explore the role, mechanism and law of China’s urban internationalization. Based on the analysis of the achievements and experience in the development of international sports events and the requirements of the new era, this paper puts forward some suggestions on how to promote the internationalization of cities by international sports events, such as promoting the popularization, industrialization, networking development and innovation of sports events, so as to better serve the internationalization of cities.
