Recently I came across an essay question that reads:
More and more developing countries start to '''cultivate their tourist resources'''. Some think this will benefit the economy of these nations; others insist the disadvantages outweigh the advantages. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
I didn't know this collocation and thus can't think of any ideas to write and develop...
Later I did some search and research yet did not have the chance to figure this out. So far the most closest collocation I came up with was '''cultivate cultural tourists'''.
So, what do you think, is this a flawed essay question? If not, what does "cultivate the tourist resources" mean?
