Welcome Chinese President, Jacopo Sertoli, will attend as moderator during the seminar held by the EU-China Trade Project (II) on January 20, in Beijing. The event will be the right occasion for participants to focus on the historical momentum for EU-China tourism. In fact, there is much room left for the development of the industry and until now the responsiveness shown by different countries varied much.

Starting from 2013, China has become the world’s largest outbound tourism market as well as a relevant destination for inbound tourism. However arrivals to China from the EU and outbound tourism to Europe are relatively less substantial compared with other regions.

The seminar will take stock of the implementation of the “EU-China Joint Statement on Tourism Cooperation” signed in 2013, while discussing how to better assist tourism stakeholders in further promoting inbound and outbound tourism to both destinations. Representatives from tourism boards and businesses will say their own, including how to foster matchmaking and investments. The Welcome Chinese Standard will be introduced by He Qiongfeng, in representation of the China Tourism Academy.
