While double-digit growth certainly means good news for the U.S. tourism, it still signifies the slowest growth since 2010—when growth stood at 53% YoY.

Chinese tourist arrivals to the United States in the first three quarters of 2016 grew 14.7% YoY, according to Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang, and he expects the total arrival to exceed 3 million by the end of the year, reported Jing Daily.

The projection means that the year of 2016 was the worst-performing year for tourism between China and the US since 2010. 

While double-digit growth certainly means good news for the U.S. tourism, it still signifies the slowest growth since 2010—when growth stood at 53% YoY.

“The United States only captures 2% of the outbound Chinese market despite strong demand from Chinese visitors to our shores,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker.

The US received 2.59 million Chinese tourists who spent USD 30.1 billion on goods and services in the country in 2015.
