China Focusing on Tourism from the U.S.

10/31/2014

The U.S. and China have a long history of cultural exchange and tourism from one destination to the other. China continues to highly value the American market and is working to make visiting China from the U.S. even easier. Officials from China are proposing increased direct flights from the U.S. to China, as well as speeding up the visa application process. (In several cities throughout China, new policies allow visitors to enter visa-free for 72 hours). Leaders from the China National Tourism Administration recently held a summit in Xiamen, in China’s Fujian province, to meet with U.S. officials to discuss tourism between the two countries. The summit brought 200 delegates from the government, travel agencies and airlines; in addition, summit attendees were able to tour Xiamen, which has been called “the garden on the sea” for its lush environment and sea-side surrounds.
