The development strategy for china's travel service industry after china's WTO entry: Present status and future prospects


  • Gi-Eun Chung


China's tourism market is growing in importance since China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). It is likely that China's opening to the world market will lead to the further development of its travel service industry. Even though China will be confronted by some difficulties, its WTO commitment may have positive impacts on the travel service industry such as the development of technologies, introduction of advanced management strategies, improved industrial structure, and increased competition in the sector. This paper aims to explain the WTO-related factors in China's travel service industry, analyzing and evaluating the sector's development strategy.
