China takes top spot in Australia’s tourist rankings
Australian Trade Commission
Tourism is now Australia’s largest services export. According to data released in May 2019 by Tourism Research Australia, tourism contributed A$37.4 billion to the Australian economy in 2017–18. This makes tourism Australia’s third most-valuable export after iron ore (A$61 billion) and coal (A$60 billion).
Of Australia’s top ten tourism markets, eight are in the Asia-Pacific region. In total, the region contributed 5.2 million sightseers to Australia in the 12 months to June 2019.
China was the largest growth market. With short-term arrivals in Australia of 1.5 million up to June 2019, China overtook New Zealand which contributed 1.4 million. The pace of change has been dramatic: 10 years ago, the annual total of Chinese travellers in Australia was just 353,000. Chinese arrivals have grown by over 1 million or at an annualized compound growth rate of 15% since 2009.
The Desert & the Dragon: New synergies, old challenges
Arabia Monitor
MENA countries have been among the major beneficiaries of China’s Belt & Road Initiative, unveiled by President Xi Jinping in 2013 as the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road.
To date, the region has received 14% of the global BRI outlay. The impact will grow as China sharpens its BRI focus and MENA economies redouble their diversification efforts, prompting new synergies.The $96bn spent on BRI investments and construction projects in MENA from October 2013 has already exceeded non-BRI Chinese spending from January 2005 to September 2013.
While China has a long history of interacting and engaging with MENA, the latest survey found that Arab business executives are still not wholly familiar with BRI nor do they view it in the overwhelmingly positive light contemplated by Beijing.
