Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has just wrapped up his visit to New Zealand. The country is likely to see a booming tourism industry in the future, thanks to a multi-entry visa extension policy for Chinese tourists. How are Chinese travel agencies viewing this development?
“In the future, personal trips to New Zealand will be the norm for Chinese tourists. And this new visa policy will make it more convenient for individual visitors to go to New Zealand. We're looking forward to it,” said Chen Yanqin, General Assistant Manager for Guangdong Nanhu International Travel Service.
A record 422,000 Chinese tourists traveled to New Zealand in the past year, contributing almost 1.5 billion US dollars to the local economy. CGTN's Ge Yunfei has the report.
