China to become emerging market for DR
Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia Fernandez says that China should become the next great emerging market for DR tourism. Garcia Fernandez will be heading a Dominican mission to the Shanghai World Fair this month. The Minister will make the most of the event to hold meetings with people with potential to facilitate an increase in Chinese tourists to the DR. He says that World Tourism Organization statistics show that 15 million Chinese nationals have already traveled overseas as tourists. This figure is projected to increase to 100 million by 2020.
