Лінк на новину http://businesslife.today/news/ekspert-turizm-dolzhen-sblizit-narody-ukrainy-i-kitaya/ [12:40, 14.05.2021] Игорь Антонович Посол: Это тоже можно опубликовать, в разделе «Новини Ради» [12:41, 14.05.2021] Ania: Укр.версия [12:41, 14.05.2021] Ania: Експерт: туризм має зблизити народи України і Китаю Нещодавно Україна ввела тимчасовий безвізовий режим для китайських туристів. Ми поспілкувалися про можливі результати такої ініціативи з Ігорем Литвиним - Надзвичайним і Повноважним Послом України в Китаї (1999-2001 рр.), Главою Українсько-Китайського Ділової ради (УКДР).
На думку експерта Ігоря Литвина, введення Україною тимчасового безвізового режиму для китайців - це правильний крок, який повинен незабаром принести економічну вигоду і позитивно відбитися на китайсько-українських відносинах. Глава Українсько-Китайського Ділової ради (УКДР) нагадав, що туристи з КНР традиційно залишають закордоном мільярди доларів.
- Якби не пандемія коронавируса, то в 2020 році, за різними прогнозами, китайські ту… [12:41, 14.05.2021] Ania: Expert: Tourism should bring the peoples of Ukraine and China closer Recently, Ukraine introduced a temporary visa-free regime for Chinese tourists. We talked about the possible results of such an initiative with Igor Lytvyn - Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to China (1999-2001), Head of the Ukrainian-Chinese Business Council (UKDS).
According to expert Igor Lytvyn, the introduction by Ukraine of a temporary visa-free regime for the Chinese is the right step, which should soon bring economic benefits and positively affect the Sino-Ukrainian relations. The head of the Ukrainian-Chinese Business Council (UKDS) recalled that tourists from China traditionally leave billions of dollars abroad.
- If it were not for the coronavirus pandemic, then in 2020, according to various forecasts, Chinese tourists could would spend, traveling to other countries, about 200-230 billion dollars, - admits the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to China (1999-2001). - Of course, tourist demand needs to recover from COVID-19, but this is still possible tens and hundreds of billions of dollars. And the 2019 figure of 30 thousand Chinese tourists who visited Ukraine is just a drop in the ocean from the possible number of guests!
The expert is sure that there are many interesting places for Chinese tourists in Ukraine. For example, places related to our communist past could be in great demand - the Chinese are interested in so-called ideological tours that allow them to touch the history of building communism in the former USSR.
Igor Lytvyn also emphasizes that the growth in the number of tourists from the Middle Kingdom will contribute to Chinese investments in the Ukrainian economy, for example, in the field of tourism infrastructure, which will be another advantage of the visa-free regime.
According to the former Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to China, the increase in the volume of tourist exchange between Ukraine and China, in addition to the undoubted rapprochement of nations, will certainly have a positive effect on the expansion of bilateral trade and economic ties.
China is Ukraine's largest trading partner. In 2020, imports from China amounted to $ 8.3 billion. China has also become the top exporter of Ukrainian products worth $ 7.1 billion. Thus, the trade between Ukraine and China has increased. In 2019, the PRC was Ukraine's main trading partner with $ 12.79 billion, in 2020 this figure increased to 15.4 billion.
