China-U.S. Tourism Summit Strengthens Cooperation

The 7th Annual China-U.S. Tourism Leadership Summit took place October 9-10 in Chicago and brought in key stakeholders from the U.S. tourism industry, along with Shao Qiwei, chairman of the China National Tourism Administration, who led the Chinese delegation. These meetings included discussions on emerging trends in the hotel industry in China and the U.S., efforts for alleviating poverty in remote and rural regions through tourism, and other trends and niche markets such as golf travel, educational tourism, culture-oriented tourism, and cruise tourism development.

The summit concluded with a plan to expand cooperation in the tourism industry between China and the U.S. in five areas:

  • Continuing to expand two-way tourism between China and the U.S. to reach the mark of 5,000,000 passengers
  • Deepening bilateral cooperation in the tourism sector to facilitate tourist exchanges between the two countries
  • Mobilizing local governments and enterprises to enhance cooperation, from personnel exchanges to industrial cooperation
  • Strengthening cooperation in tourism research, education and personnel training between the two countries to provide intellectual support for tourism development
  • Continuing to expand Sino-U.S. exchanges between young people in order to build a solid foundation for lasting friendship between the two countries
