Chinese outbound tourism has been seen growing during these past decade. COTRI, Chinese Outbound Tourism Research Institute, has been collected information and date of Chinese outbound tourism and found that recently the attitude has been changed. The following article was delevered by COTRI.
"January 2013: Chairman of the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA), Shao Qiwei: “Outbound tourism will boost China’s development in the long-term. The government, and particularly CNTA, will continue to promote the travelling of Chinese people abroad as we believe in the mutual benefits of collaboration. By continuing to send Chinese travellers to Europe, the benefits will eventually flow back to China.” (Traveldaily Asia)
April 2013: “The 2013 Annual Conference of Boao Forum for Asia opened on the morning of April 7th in Boao, Hainan. President Xi Jinping said in his keynote speech at the opening ceremony that China in the next five year .. will invest US$500 billion in foreign countries, and have probably over 400 million tourists traveling abroad.” (Xinhua News Agency)
For the first time ever a Chinese communist party leader speaks internationally – and in a positive way – about outbound tourism. Clear signal: Outbound travel is political correct and supported by the party and government.
