China Working to Expand Tourism

A recent annual report from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) stated that travel and tourism growth in China was lower than expected for 2013. While WTTC had previously reported that China’s tourism contribution to the global economy is expected to overtake that of the United State by 2027, this recent report shows that growth may be slightly slower than previously predicted.

Although rates were lower than anticipated, David Scowsill, president and CEO of WTTC, said in an accompanying statement that China is “still one of only two G20 countries in the top 20 with travel and tourism GDP growth this year.” China will continue to focus on sustainable infrastructure growth and expanding its tourism economy by making it more welcoming to international visitors. All this just goes to show that China is a hot-spot destination for 2014 and beyond.
