This saw a 69-percent jump from 2012 and average annual growth of 15.8 percent over the past five years.

 

 

It was also seen that 129 million overseas trips were made in 2017. Li further added that Tourism lead to the creation of more than 80 million jobs and became an important industry to help the economy and reduce poverty.

 

 

In order to regulate the domestic tourism market, CNTA downgraded three 5A tourist destinations and warned more than 400 scenic areas for poor service and substandard hygiene over the past three years said Li.
