Revenue from China's rural tourism surpassed RMB 570 billion (USD 82.66 billion) in 2016, up significantly from RMB 440 billion a year ago.

Revenue from rural tourism surpassed RMB 570 billion (USD 82.66 billion) in 2016, up significantly from RMB 440 billion a year ago, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) said Tuesday during a meeting.
