The Coordinated Development of Sports Industry and Tourism under the Perspective of Soft Power: A Case Study of Henan Province

As an industry representing soft power, the coordinated development between sports industry and tourism plays an important role in promoting economic growth. Using the cointegration theory, we carry out empirical test of economic growth, the output value of sport and tourism income; using the coordination theory, we carry out the evaluation of the coordinated development between sports industry and tourism. It is found in the study that there is a long-term stable dynamic equilibrium relationship among economic growth, the output value of sport and tourism income. The sports industry and tourism in Henan Province have undergone six stages (imbalance—on the verge of imbalance—barely coordinated—primarily coordinated—moderately coordinated—well coordinated). In the process of coordinated development, sports industry significantly lags behind tourism, so it is necessary to strengthen the sports industry personnel's quality, and optimize the coordination between the sports industry and tourism, so as to promote economic development level.
