China domestic travel market is opening

Experts have already expected that China have to lower some boundaries for foreign companies who want to enter the Chinese tourism market in the context of China’s entry into the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

Finally China has announced, four month before the official deadline for the terms set by the WTO, that they will soon “fully open” the Chinese domestic travel market to foreign owned travel agencies.

The head of the CNTA (China National Tourism Administration) Shao Qiwei, said that China is welcoming the entry of big international tourism companies and that the new competition will help to enhance Chinese tourism companies as well.

    Good morning.
    Could you bring me information about the fitness industry in China, and its relationship with Tourism?
    Currently I am writing a “memoire” about the Fitness Industry in China, but hardly find information.
    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards.
