The Number of Chinese Tourists to Morocco Multiplied by 20 in three years !!!
The number of tourists coming from China to Morocco has increased from 10,000 in 2015 to nearly 200,000 for the current year, according to Mohamed Sajid, Minister of Tourism, Air Transport, Crafts and Social Economy, who speaks in Marrakech on Sunday with Chinese Vice Minister of Culture and Tourism Li Jinzao.
Thus,These performances were achieved when there is no direct air route between Morocco and China, said Sajid, noting that the opening of direct flights between the two countries, is under study to Royal Air Maroc (RAM) and some Chinese airlines.
In addition to that, this sharp increase, as well as relations between Rabat and Beijing more generally, were made possible especially after the visit of King Mohammed VI to China in 2016, said the minister.
The significant increase in the number of Chinese tourists to Morocco was recorded after the removal of visas for Chinese nationals, added the Minister, whose interviews with Li Jinzao allowed to review the efforts of Moroccan tourism professionals to present offers meeting the expectations of Chinese tourists.
China’s Vice Minister of Culture and Tourism, who is on a four-day official visit to the Kingdom, said relations between the two countries were on a steady course, signaling the forthcoming opening of a Chinese Cultural Center in Rabat.
