Published on : Thursday, October 20, 2016

ChinaChina and Philippines are soon going to sign an agreement that would enable the south-east Asian nation Philippines to draw in an increased number of tourists from the biggest economy of Asia that is China.


These two nations would be signing a memorandum of understanding on tourism. This would be done at a time when Duterte, president of China would visit Philippines, as revealed by Wanda Corazon Teo, the tourism secretary of Philippines.


In 2015, the number of Chinese tourists who visited Philippines increased to over 24% to 4,90,841, as stated by the agency.


Within the period of January to July, Chinese travellers who visited Philippines was around 4,22,801 making it the third biggest country in terms of its visitors to Philippines, just after South Korea and the US.


Organized tours from mainland China have been scheduled for the next two months after 2,000 tourists from Guangzhou had paid visit to Boracay in Philippines via the Legend of the Seas that is a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.


Drawing more number of tourists from China would greatly   assist the tourism department of Philippines to boost tourist arrivals.


Wanda Corazon Teo said that Philippines have been aiming to draw 12 million international visitors in 2022. She also went on to say that the new tourism agreement would ensure that Philippines is not beaten by other Asian countries in terms of tourism.
