Chinese visitors carry Australian international tourism revenue to rise 14%
Chinese tourists remain Australia's biggest spenders, pumping a record 10.4 billion AU dollars ($8.17 billion) - a 14 percent increase from last year - into the economy, said an insider in a media release.
Spending by international visitors in Australia has surpassed AU$ 40 billion (USD 31 billion) for the first time with a quarter coming from Chinese tourists, a tourism survey said on Wednesday.
 
The International Visitor Survey, released by Tourism Research Australia on Wednesday, revealed that international spending rose 6 percent, or AU$ 2.2 billion (USD 1.7 billion), to AU$ 41.3 billion (USD 32.44 billion) in the 2017 calendar year. The number of international visitors to Australia also rose 6 percent to 8.1 million.
 
"Chinese tourists remain Australia's biggest spenders, pumping a record AU$ 10.4 billion (USD 8.17 billion) - a 14 percent increase from last year - into the economy," Australian Minister for Trade and Tourism Steven Ciobo said in a media release on Wednesday.
 
The growth coincided with the 2017 China Australia Year of Tourism - a government initiative to promote Australia as a destination in China through "targeted marketing, aviation liberalization and visa reform."
 
Approximately 1.33 million Chinese tourists visited Australia in 2017.
