Monthly China Outbound Tourism Index

To provide an easy-to-understand indicator for the analysis and forecast of the development of China’s outbound tourism, COTEP members are asked to provide an assessment of the overall development of China’s outbound tourism in the last and in the next 12 months, taking into account the development of the number of Chinese outbound travellers, the amount spent by Chinese outbound travellers, the level of support by the government in China and in the destinations and the level of commitment of tourism companies in China and in the destinations.

“China’s outbound tourism 2025”

 The goal is to forecast the parameters and likely scenarios of the development of China’s outbound tourism over the next 12 years up to 2025. Results will be published in suitable form in academic articles and a book, in Chinese and in English.
