Chinese And US Presidents Have Come To A Common Ground Regarding Tourism Facilitation!

Nov 20, 2023

News

At the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit organized in San Francisco, Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Joe Biden discussed improving the air connectivity between the two countries and streamlining the visa process.

The discussion continued at a dinner hosted by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and the US-China Business Council. At this dinner, Chinese President Xi confirmed that the tourism ties between the two countries will improve.

There have been claims made by President Chris Thompson, the president and CEO of the Brand USA. These claims inform that the U.S. cannot completely recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic without Chinese tourism. Complete Chinese tourism has not resumed!

Factors such as weak air connectivity and long visa wait times impact the overall tourism sector worldwide, including the U.S. and China. According to reports, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Chinese tourists contributed heavily to the U.S. economy.

The Chinese tourists spent about $15 million when visiting the U.S.! In a year, the average number of Chinese who visited the U.S. was about 2.5 million people, and the way they boosted the U.S. economy was nowhere near any other market. It is due to this reason that the U.S. is improving its tourism ties with the Chinese government!

According to President Geoff Freeman of the U.S., the international side of tourism is also impacted by the irregular and disturbed tourism ties between China and the U.S. This change will affect the Travel Association, the company’s CEO, worldwide.

He spoke at the Skift Global Forum that the market Chinese tourists support in the U.S. will only be available here. Let’s look forward to a developed relationship between China and the U.S., starting from tourism.

Montana: The Unique Treasure Trove Of The United States

BY Sarmind SafiOct 26, 2023

Montana is home to some of the most stunning natural beauty in the US. This western state has incredible, dramatic terrain. From the Rocky Mountain range to cold lakes, alpine forests, and vast swaths of wilderness, Montana is a state of diverse terrain and unique culture. With a population estimated at only 1.1 million in 2022, Montana is among the least-populated states in the U.S.! At an elevation of 12,807 feet, Granite Peak is the highest point in the Beartooth Mountains, the highest point in Montana, and the tenth-highest point in the United States. Montana leads the country in the production of organic wheat, flax, lentils, and dry peas.  In 1971, the Transportation Department made a video called “Montana, Land of the Big Sky.” This led to its unofficial nickname, “Big Sky State.” There are eight (8) National Parks in Montana that generate $618.9 million in tourism each year from about 3.6 million visitors. Its two most popular National Parks are Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. In Montana, two-fifths of the state is in the Rocky Mountain region. It also covers states including Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. The name “Montana” comes from a Spanish word. The Spanish “montaña,” roughly translates to “mountainous.” Montana’s official state flower, Lewisia redivivia, also known as bitterroot, is a perennial plant that grows at elevations from 2,500 to 10,000 feet. These plants produce pink, rose, and even white-colored flowers, which reach about 2 inches across. Montana’s state tree is the Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa). The Ponderosa pine can live for hundreds of years, growing tall into the sky as large and beautiful evergreen trees. The Roe River in Great Falls, Montana, has the notable distinction of being the world’s shortest river. This super-short river flows only 200 feet, reaching between Giant Springs and the Missouri River. Gemstone mining in Montana has long had an important place in the state’s economy. Montana’s two state gemstones are agate and sapphire. Since 1969, these two gemstones have shared the unique recognition of being the official state gemstones.
