    China to welcome 30 million visitors in 2015 : FMR Report

    Williamstown, MA,USA : China’s tourism market is exceptionally strong, benefiting from one of the largest potential outbound travel sectors in the world. Both inbound arrivals and outbound departures are expected to increase steadily throughout our forecast period to 2019, and the country continues to attract a range of foreign investors keen to take advantage of the high growth potential in the tourism industry according to a latest tourism report. 

    An ongoing process of global marketing campaigns alongside an increase in regional and global travel connections and gradual visa relaxation is boosting China’s inbound travel market.

    The Fast Market Research  report states – ” In 2015 we expect China to welcome around 29.6mn visitors, attracted by China’s 47 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the renowned Forbidden City in Beijing and the Great Wall as well as a range of nature reserves, cosmopolitan cities and beach destinations. Although the pace of annual arrivals growth has slowed since China hosted the 2008 Olympic and Paralympics Games, China still presents a range of opportunities for expansion particularly in the hotel sector, and we expect to see steady growth in arrivals moving forward.”

    As well as a healthy inbound tourism market, China also presents investors with an immense potential outbound tourism market. Domestic economic growth and an increasingly affluent middle class have led to sharp increases in outbound travel and we expect this trend to continue, growing from a high base of 105.1mn in 2015.

    There is also a strong tradition of internal travel within China, leading to a range of opportunities for domestic hotel and tour operators.

    Overall China is well placed to keep up with the expected increases in demand. The country’s transport network is extensive, and the government continues to invest in expanding road, rail and air travel connections as well as attracting extensive…

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
