During this year, we have witnessed a series of political events that call into question China’s relationship with a number of Western countries. Although geopolitics for the tourism industry is secondary, for Chinese tourists, political issues, from the U.S. trade dispute to the constant unrest on the streets of Hong Kong, have a major impact on deciding the destination for the next trip abroad.

FIT-ovci (free independent traveler)troše najviše, i u ukupnoj masi turista iz Kine njihov je udio 80%.  In addition, we should take advantage of the fact that Croatian-Chinese relations are extremely good at the moment, so it is really the right time to enter the Chinese tourist market. The highest growth in arrivals is in southern Europe, where the Chinese are looking for new attractive destinations. Compared to 2018, in 2019 the growth in the number of Chinese tourists is as follows: Serbia 39,0%, Montenegro 44,0%, Croatia 53,0%, Cyprus 125,0%.center_img Although this growth is based on relatively low starting figures, the increasing availability of these locations, together with simpler visa regimes, are helping such growth. The abolition of visas for entry into Serbia and Montenegro has a huge impact, and combined with the trend of Chinese tourists to want to visit a location where there are no other Chinese, it is a complete success. Chinese millennials are planning more and more short trips to distant destinations, while Chinese tourists are generally exploring a larger number of distant destinations, according to Hotelbeds.

Consider also the fact that China’s outbound tourism market is the largest in the world in terms of total consumption. North America experienced a drop in Chinese tourist arrivals of over 2019% in 10,0, and the consumption of Chinese tourists in New York decreased by 11,9%. In Canada, the situation is very similar. At the beginning of the year, they had a record number of tourists for the Chinese New Year, but the diplomatic dispute over Huawei, along with the tightening of the visa regime, resulted in minuses in the second half of the year. Hong Kong expects to lose 350.000 tourists in the coming months. In the first quarter of 2019, the increase in the number of individual tourists from China worldwide increased by 12,7%. This trend is very likely to continue in 2020. If you are not currently targeting the Chinese tourism market, now is the right time to build a strategy to attract “the most promising target group of tourists for the European tourism industry.” At the same time, the Chinese outbound tourism market continues its great growth, so Chinese tourists are finding equally attractive destinations in other parts of the world. Together with you, we can make your product speak the language of global tourists, all in order to generate the revenue you have planned.last_img read more

Ambrose lauds Skerritt’s administration

first_img(CMC) – Legendary fast bowler Sir Curtly Ambrose has lauded the Ricky Skerritt administration for immediately confronting and attempting to fix the player issues facing West Indies cricket.Prior to Skerritt’s election as Cricket West Indies (CWI) president a year ago, several experienced players remained at loggerheads with the Dave Cameron-led board and often declined selection while others opted for retirement.However, with Skerritt immediately overhauling the selection process and announcing his intention to use a player-centred approach to governance, the Caribbean side has seen the return of players like Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Lendl Simmons.“CWI before Ricky Skerritt’s tenure has had major issues with players and the board, and a lot of players just didn’t want to represent the West Indies because of issues,” Sir Curtly said here.“What I like about his (Skerritt) thing is that he brought all the players back in, meaning that everyone can be available for selection so we can try and find the strongest West Indies teams and that, to me, is a good thing.”Simmons was recalled after 2-½ years in the wilderness while Bravo ended his retirement and earlier this year made his first appearance in nearly four years for the Caribbean side.Pollard, whose appearances had also been infrequent, was appointed captain of the white-ball sides last September, despite having not played a single One-Day International in three years.Sir Curtly, a former West Indies bowling coach, said Pollard’s appointment had been a progressive move by selectors.“I like the idea of bringing Pollard as captain and I’ve said that before, in the ODIs and T20s,” said the Antiguan, who snatched 405 wickets from 98 Tests.“I think he is a fantastic leader. I have a lot of respect for him. He knows how to get the best out of his players and it is going to take a little time as well because we are so far behind.”Despite the positive moves by Skerritt regarding player involvement, Sir Curtly said the former tourism minister in St Kitts had a massive job on his hands in rescuing West Indies cricket.“West Indies cricket generally has been in a serious decline for about 20 years and even though president Skerritt and his crew have a lot of things they want to put in place, it is almost impossible to fix West Indies cricket in one year and not even one term, because one term is two years,” Sir Curtly argued.“It is going to take a lot longer than two years to really implement the things that they want to implement.”last_img read more
