Brief description of call: China’s strong economy and growing middle class mean more Chinese citizens are traveling abroad. Last year, China’s tourism expenditures exceeded $100 billion. With more than 110 million people and 10 percent annual GDP growth, Northeastern China is an important part of China’s tourism market. How can your region and your economy attract more travelers from this key region? Take advantage of this Direct Line call with U.S. Consulate General Shenyang’s experts, including Consul General Sean Stein, Foreign Commercial Officer Steve Green, and Consular Chief Tyler Allen. Because new tourists often rely on advice from local tour agents, we have also invited a representative of a local tour agency to answer your questions.
