Chinese mainland travelersAccording to a report by China’s leading online travel agency Ctrip, mainland travelers are a major driving force for global tourism. As the world’s biggest spenders, Chinese mainland tourists spent 261 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, accounting for nearly 21 percent of the world’s tourist consumption.

China’s outbound tourism has enjoyed a double-digit growth for 12 consecutive years. Countries like the United States, Canada and Singapore, now issue 10-year visas to mainland tourists, helping China’s tourism market. In addition, China launched 260 international airlines from January to November last year, stimulating demand.

Figures released by the World Economic Forum in 2017 show that tourism last year boosted the economy by generating over 7.6 trillion U.S. dollars globally, supporting over 292 million jobs, or one in ten jobs worldwide.
