Shanghai aims to become a hub for cruise tourism

Published on : Thursday, August 8, 2019

Shanghai will set up a demonstration zone for cruise tourism, approved by China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

 

Shanghai has set up a goal to become a center for cruise tourism and a base for cruise companies’ headquarters across the Asia-Pacific region, and also a world-class home port and cruise tourism destination, by further innovating the policies, increasing its regional authority and upgrading the service capability for the cruise industry.

 

The city is promoting the development of the entire chain of the cruise industry, along with promotion of the design and manufacturing of cruise ships, attracting top cruise companies of the world to set up headquarters and stimulate consumption concerning cruise tourism in the region.

 

A 1,700-square-meter duty-free shop inside the cruise port will open in early November, during the second China International Import Expo in Shanghai.

 

The Shanghai port has grabbed a prime spot in cruise business across Asia over three consecutive years, making up 63 percent of China’s cruise market.
