The number of visitors to China has jumped from the previous year and will top 100 million this year, according to a new report.
The numbers are a stark reminder of the country’s burgeoning economic power.
China is on track to become the world’s second-largest economy by 2020 and the second-biggest in the world, according the World Economic Forum.
But despite the growth, its tourism industry has been plagued by a shortage of hotel rooms.
The number of hotel stays has been steadily declining since 2008, when the country was hit by the financial crisis and was still reeling from the devastating quake in March 2011.
The new report, published by the China Tourism Council (CTC), also says that China has become more hospitable to foreigners.
It says more people are willing to come for business and leisure, with some locals saying they feel more at home in the country.
In addition, the number of Chinese tourists to the US and Europe has also surged, the report said.
The report cites a study from China Tourism Association, which predicts that by 2020 the number visiting China will double, to more than 20 million people, and that this will translate into a $200 billion economic boost to the country over the next 10 years.
While tourism is booming, it is still a relatively small part of China’s economy, the CBT said.
China has around $30 billion in tourist revenue per year, but its tourism spend has been relatively modest in recent years.
The report says Chinese tourists spend more on food and drinks than they do on travel.
“It’s not just that China is becoming more hospitably to foreigners, but also the economy is growing,” said David Gershenfeld, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of the report.
According to the CBTS, China has a GDP of $11.3 trillion, with the biggest economy in the Asia Pacific region, but is also one of the worlds most unequal nations.
The growth in China’s GDP has been driven by the rapid growth in the number and types of people visiting the country, as well as by China’s booming urbanization, Gershelf said.
“In addition to China, Japan and India are also growing much more rapidly, so there are two big economies that are growing at the same time.”
Tourism is growing at a faster rate than the economy, and the CBTs report also shows that China’s “economic power is expanding,” said Gersh.
The CBT estimates that China will become the sixth-largest nation by 2020.
Its growing economic power has made it attractive to tourists.
According to the report, China’s tourist numbers are up by 30 percent year-on-year, from a projected 8.3 million in 2014 to 9.1 million this past year.
That represents an increase of about 12 percent in one year.
China has also attracted international attention by becoming a major hub for international travel, including visits to the U.S., Europe and Africa.
The CBT report says that many of Chinas top cities are attracting tourists to become more tourist-friendly, including Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
China is also becoming more attractive to international travelers, with more foreign tourists visiting its cities than in any other country in the region, the group said.
While the number is growing, there are still areas of the Chinese tourism industry that are still not working well.
The tourism industry is still suffering from a shortage, with only 7 percent of the sector’s hotel rooms being filled in the first quarter of 2020, according a CBT study.
The lack of room occupancy has led to a growing number of people not staying in hotels, the study said.
The sector has also been hit by a decline in the quality of hotel accommodation.
The overall CBT survey found that about a quarter of the hotel occupancy in China is not at its peak, as hotels need to fill more rooms for guests who can’t be booked in, as the CBTC report found.
That means that a hotel stays open longer, which reduces its capacity to meet demand for rooms.
While China is expanding its tourism, there is a growing trend toward more casual and “coupled” travel, with fewer people visiting places like Disneyland and the like, and fewer people going to major cities.
China’s tourism industry will continue to expand as the country continues to open up to more visitors and its economy grows, Gorsh said.
