The following article appeared as the lead story in the February 13, 2018 edition of the COTRI Weekly
With more statistics for December 2017 now available, we can confirm that our forecast of 145 million border crossings from Mainland China in 2017 has been accurate, with 69.5 million trips ending in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, and 75.5 million trips going further to the rest of the world.
For 2018, the COTRI forecast is 154 million border crossings, out of which 70.5 million will end in Greater China and 83.5 million go beyond. The additional nine million trips will therefore be very unevenly distributed: Greater China will see an increase of only one million arrivals, whereas the rest of the world will be able to welcome eight million more arrivals.
