A recent report shows that China remains the driving force for the global tourism industry, as the number of outbound Chinese tourists and their spending power continue to rise, though at a more moderate pace. Changes in the demographic and spending habits of Chinese outbound visitors could benefit countries those along the Belt and Road (B&R) routes.

Professional trade days are arranged exclusively for registered delegates, and in the day open to the public, exhibitors can promote tourist products and show advantages of tourism resources to the mass directly.
