This was evident during the interview with James Qian, the agent at the PNG Tourism Promotion Authority office in Shanghai, China.
The office has been in existence for three years now.
Qian says initially, not many Chinese were aware of PNG. But this has changed now, with visitor numbers to PNG increasing yearly.
“China people love to travel. Most prefer spending their holidays overseas. So this provides a good opportunity for PNG,” he said.
Qian said 2018 will particularly be a good year for PNG.
