UNWTO: 2% growth in international visitors in China in first nine months of 2019

Mainland China, the region’s largest destination recorded a 2% growth in the rst three quarters of 2018, according to the UNWTO Barometer. The opening of the Hong- Kong- Zhuhai-Macau Bridge in October 2018 is expected to enhance connectivity and boost tourist flows between the three cities of the Greater Bay Area. In terms of tourism earnings, China recorded a 30% increase up to September, rebounding strongly from a decline in 2017 as a weaker Yuan has made the destination more affordable.
