NEW South Wales Min­is­ter for Tourism and Ma­jor Events Adam Marshall will meet this week with key trade part­ners for Des­ti­na­tion NSW and Busi­ness Events Syd­ney in China.

Marshall will dis­cuss ways to build on the state’s ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ship with China, plus bring new busi­ness to NSW.

“China is our state’s num­ber one in­ter­na­tional mar­ket, and the op­por­tu­nity to meet with some of the China’s in­dus­try lead­ers is crit­i­cal in main­tain­ing our strong re­la­tion­ship and con­tin­u­ing to grow the num­ber of Chi­nese vis­i­tors to NSW.”

The Min­is­ter will also fo­cus on driv­ing vis­i­ta­tion to ru­ral and re­gional NSW for both the tourism and events sec­tor.

He will hold meet­ings in Beijing, Guangzhou and Tian­jin.

The trip is part of the Tourism Min­is­ters’ Meet­ing (TMM) be­ing held in Beijing as part of the China-Aus­tralia Year of Tourism, which cel­e­brates the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the two coun­tries, while recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance of the China mar­ket.

In the year ended Mar 2017, NSW wel­comed 700,500 vis­i­tors from China, which is an in­crease of 14.4%. year-on-year.
