China's tourism lifts international influence

The tourism industry has gradually become an important strategic industry for China's external relations. The number of visitors from abroad exceeded 10.3 million. The total number of Sino-US tourism exchanges reached 4.28 million. The communication scales of Sino-Japanese, Sino-Russian, Sino-Indian and Sino-East European relations have been rapidly expanding, which made a positive contribution to Chinese diplomatic relations with those countries.
