HVS, BISU& BHI Host 5th China Hotel Investment Summit in April 2009 Focus On China Asia’s Powerhouse
5th annual China Hotel Investment Summit (CHIS) 2009
Investments in China’s hotel and travel-related industries are among the highest in the world. This is driven by phenomenal growth in the country’s travel and tourism sectors. Over the past five years, domestic visitor arrivals grew 85% to 16.1 billion visitors by 2007; the international arrivals increased 43% reaching 132 million visitors, and gross tourism revenue reaching 1,080 billion yuan. This has fuelled rising demand in related industries including hotel and serviced residential lodging, air and land transportation, construction, professional services, tourism, retail, and so forth. While growth in the near-term could be moderated, the long-term outlook is promising, considering the country’s economic fundamentals and growing affluence.
Professor Dai Bin, Vice President of China Tourism Academy and President of Beijing Hospitality Institute, added that “the determination of the Chinese government in ensuring the continued growth in the economy is reflected in the 4 trillion yuan (approximately US$570 billion) stimulus package announced on 9 November 2008. The fund will finance a wide range of projects, including the country’s infrastructure, which could incite consumer spending and bolster the economy especially in tourism market and hotel investment”.
