“Investment, health tourism and better business cooperation are the most important topics of the 4th international ministerial conference China +16, which started in the southern Adriatic resort of Dubrovnik on Wednesday, bringing together over 100 participants.

Croatian Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli said the Chinese market held enormous potential, adding that China ranks second in the world in terms of travelling abroad.

‘Chinese tourists account for one fifth of the global tourism and last year alone 12.4 million Chinese visited Europe, which is why central and eastern European counties see an enormous growth potential in China. That is why this form of cooperation is an integral part of cooperation between China and the EU. With this we are sending a positive signal to the world regarding support to free trade,’ Cappelli said at the conference, held at the level of tourism ministers.” (N1)
