Webinar

The Unbearable Uncertainty of Chinese Outbound Travel

With China having been largely closed for almost three years, due to travel restrictions as part of the Government’s ‘zero-covid’ policy, global tourism destinations eagerly await the resumption of visits from China. Having been the largest global source market for tourism spending before the pandemic, the resumption of Chinese outbound travel is crucial for the industry’s recovery. This webinar will discuss current expectations and uncertainty around the timing for Chinese outbound travel recovering, and what it means for recovery of tourism for many destinations.
