CHINESE TOURISTS TO SYDNEY (S103147)

Question

The business connections between Australia and China expand and Sydney is the country’s leading business city. Business tourists are estimated to be worth 6.5 times more than leisure tourists.

How many business tourists from China visited Sydney in 2014 and 2015?

How many are expected to visit in 2016? What was the average economic benefit to Sydney’s businesses, big and small, of business tourists from China in 2014 and 2015 and what is the forecast amount for 2016?

Answer

Destination NSW has overarching responsibility for tourism in NSW. The latest information released by Destination NSW refers to tourism in Sydney generally, not specifically related to Chinese New Year: http://www.destinationnsw.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Sydney-YE-Sep-15.pdf
