The share of the APR in the world tourism market will grow to 30 percent

The Asia-Pacific region turned out to be the most promising tourism market in the world, reports the Xinhua News Agency. In the near future, experts predict an increase in its global market share from 23 to 30 percent, said Xu Jing, head of the Asia-Pacific Division of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), speaking at the China-2014 Travel Industry Fair in Tianjin (North China).

In recent years, the global tourism market has maintained an 5-percent growth rate, and the figure in the APR is 6 percent. Currently, new tourist markets are no longer inferior to the developed countries of the world. The international community, including the WTO, hopes that the tourism industry will be able to stimulate the development of the national economy.

Special attention of the WTO specialists is focused on such issues as simplification of the process of touring, development of infrastructure and air transport facilities, application of information technologies in the field of tourism.

Xu Jing also noted the importance of developing the so-called intellectual tourism. In his opinion, this will allow more medium-sized and small enterprises to establish interregional cooperation.
