Ctrip, Hungary Tourism sign agreement

BEIJING: Ctrip has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Hungarian Tourism Agency to boost the development of tourism and trade between China and Hungary and the long-term cooperation between China and the CEEC.

Chinese Premier Li Ke Qiang visited Hungary to attend the 6th China-CEEC Summit and to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the 16+1 cooperation. Hungary was the first European country to sign a MOU relating to China’s “One Belt, One Road” Initiative.

Ctrip’s November Statistics reported Hungary recording a 40% hike in growth year on year from visits made by Chinese tourists. They spent an average of more than 9,000 RMB per person in-country. Ctrip’s 2017 October Golden Week Travel Report noted a 95% increase in visits to Hungary year-on-year. Moreover, searches on Ctrip for flights to Hungary rose by 70% during the past 11 months.

Tseng said, “Chinese travellers are increasingly discovering Hungary as a top-tier vacation destination. We look forward to working closely with the Hungarian Tourism Agency to continue to promote Hungary through Ctrip’s leading online travel platform.”
