On an average, every Chinese made 3.7 trips last year, Li said.

 
Over five billion trips were made across China last year, generating a total estimated revenue of 4.57 trillion yuan in 2017 — a 69-per cent jump from 2012 and an average annual growth of 15.8 per cent over the past five years.

 
Meanwhile, 129 million overseas trips were made last year.

 
Tourism has created more than 80 million jobs and became an important industry to help the economy and reduce poverty, Li said.

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

 
Jinzao also introduced a three-step goal for China’s tourism industry to lead China to become a strong tourism country by 2040.
