He believes that everyone is anxiously awaiting the increase in inbound and outbound tourism from China. Many tourist destinations are also eager for Chinese tourists to return as soon as possible.

Sandra Caravao appealed that rural development cannot be separated from national policy support. China is one of these countries, which gives the most importance to the role of tourism industry in rural development. China has made specific policies for this. He said, “We have seen how China supports rural areas in various sectors like building infrastructure etc. These are important.”
