Chinese touristsThe Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association President Chris James has welcomed initiatives spearheaded by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley to encourage tourism in T&T.

 
On his official visit to China, Rowley said that once Chinese citizens have either a United States or Canadian visa, then they would also be eligible to travel to T&T. The Prime Minister and his delegation also had talks with the HNA Group and Air China.

 
The HNA Group owns over 1,200 hundred aircrafts, and is a substantial shareholder in international hotel chains, being the largest tour operating company in China.

 
HNA Group has been invited to establish code sharing and interline arrangements with Caribbean Airlines (CAL).

 
All the predictions of the World Tourism Council, James continued, “Is that Chinese tourism is going to grow and grow and grow.”

 
He said that it is important for the country to, “diversify our originating destinations so that we don’t get dependent on a single one.” James said hotels and guest houses in Tobago have been working to improve their capacity and the island continues to focus on attracting both domestic and international tourists.
