The 10th China International Travel Mart, which is Asia's largest international tourism fair, is being held from November 20 to 24 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.
The Chinese domestic tourism market is one of the most active in the world with a huge potential for growth, Zhu Shanzhong, director general of the Marketing and Communications Department said at the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA). In 2007, the three major markets of domestic travel, inbound travel and outbound travel, hit new record highs. The latest statistics indicate that the total revenue from international and domestic travel in China reached a record high of US $150 billion in 2007.
