Peruvian peninsula of Paracas in PeruDue to the country’s huge potential to improve the visitor experience at tourist attractions along its territory, Peru is likely to attract up to 200,000 Chinese travelers each year.

 

Peru’s Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister, Eduardo Ferreyros was quoted as saying by Andina news agency, “”A total of 50,000 Chinese tourists are expected by the end of the year —a small figure considering the country’s potential. We want it to grow fourfold within the coming years.”

 

“We have given priority to various markets like the neighboring countries (Ecuador, Chile, Colombia and Brazil) to achieve the goal, but we also looking at large markets such as Asia, mainly China,” he stated.

 

The Asian market is very important to reach the government’s goal of receiving 7 million foreign tourists per year.

 

The visa waiver for Chinese citizens holding a visa or permanent resident status in the United States, Canada, or any Schengen State was one of the actions taken to boost tourism from China.

 

“So far this year, the number of Chinese arrivals to Peru has increased by 40%, which is still low, which is why Peruvian tourist attractions need to be better marketed in China,” he commented.
