Out­bound tourism to surge by 2020: re­port

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

The num­ber of Chi­nese tourists trav­el­ing in­ter­na­tion­ally is ex­pected to dou­ble to 200 mil­lion by 2020 and their spend­ing will triple, ac­cord­ing to a re­port.

In­creas­ing per-capita GDP and al­lot­ted va­ca­tion days will fuel the growth, ac­cord­ing to the re­port by the Hong Kong-based bro­ker­age and in­vest­ment group CLSA Asia-Pa­cific

CLSA’s sur­vey of 1,000 Chi­nese trav­el­ers from 41 cities found the US and France were the top travel des­ti­na­tions in 2012, with 1.5 mil­lion and 1.3 mil­lion visi­tors, re­spec­tively. The re­port pre­dicted that by 2020, the US will see 5.7 mil­lion visi­tors and France 3.9 mil­lion.

The Chi­nese Na­tional Tourism Ad­min­is­tra­tion re­ported ear­lier this month that 97 mil­lion Chi­nese visi­tors went abroad in 2013. It said it ex­pects the num­ber to sur­pass 100 mil­lion this year.
