China to strengthen Supervision of Tourism Market

China’s State Council, the cabinet, said Friday it will expedite establishment of a tourism supervision mechanism to address problems such as the infringement of tourists’ rights.

The State Council has set up a working group specially for supervision, while China National Tourism Administration will be responsible for guidance, coordination and supervision, among other duties.

Local governments were also urged to establish relevant mechanisms and make public the details, the cabinet said in a notice.

The government encouraged citizens to provide tips on violations of the rules or law via the “12301” hotline or other platforms.

China’s booming domestic tourism market saw over 4 billion journeys in 2015, generating tourism revenue of more than 4 trillion yuan ($620 billion).
