Reports from the China National Tourism Administration and the United Nations World Tourism Organisation show that Chinese tourists love travelling and spending money while doing so. Statistics South Africa show that 1,012,641 tourist arrivals in South Africa were recorded in January 2016, up by 15% from that of the same month in 2015.
The Department of Home Affairs South Africa announced that Chinese travelling to South Africa will continue to grow especially since the department have relaxed the Visa application rules and have established contact centres in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province and Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province.
These measures will surely attract more Chinese tourists to South Africa. It is up to local businesses how they will channel the tourists spending. If for example you are in the food & beverage industry and own a restaurant, you might want to introduce local and African cuisine to the tourists and who know what will happen thereafter. The rest is left to your imagination. Though what is doable immediately is to attend the China Trader Expo 2016. Details and how to exhibit your products and services are on the website.
