China's outbound tourism could maintain "explosive growth" in next decade
Chinese outbound tourism has witnessed "explosive growth" in the past 10 years, and the trend is likely to be maintained in the next decade, Ctrip CEO Sun Jie said.
Chinese mainland travelers made more than 120 million outbound trips in 2015, 313 percent more than 2005, according to a report released earlier by Ctrip, China's leading online travel agency, and the think tank Center for China and Globalization.
In the first half of 2017, 62 million overseas trips were made by Chinese tourists, the China National Tourism Administration said in a statement last month.
Sun said China's tourism cooperation with BRICS countries will become closer and tourists can enjoy benefits in everything from visas to flights in the future.
