The relationship between the visible hand and invisible hand should be handled scientifically and the development of both the public leisure facilities and the service and commercial leisure facilities should be properly coordinated.

Fourthly, there is no denying that, leisure is closely linked to economy. However, leisure development is far from an easy economic affair.
