Attract China CEO Evan Saunders Interviewed on CCTV America

June 25, 2015

Attract China CEO Evan Saunders was interviewed by CCTV-America’s Phillip Yin on June 22 about the surge in Chinese outbound tourism market.

In the interview, Evan talks about the authentic experiences that Chinese travelers are looking for in the U.S. and the impact of the new 10 year U.S.- China visa policy. “It has a massive impact on tourism,” said Evan. “…We have both group tourists as well as independent Chinese travelers. About ten years ago, close to about 5 to 10 percent of all tourists coming from China to America were independent. Fast forward to today, close to 70 percent of the Chinese coming from China to America are independent, and they are the ones that are thrilled to be able to take the advantage of this 10-year multiple-entry visa to America.”
