JAKARTA, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia will take part in the upcoming China International Travel Mart (CITM) slated from Nov. 16 to Nov. 18 in Shanghai, aimed at attracting bigger chunk of China's robust tourism market, Indonesia Tourism Minister Arief Yahya has said.
The minister said China tourism market is highly potential with its huge number of annual outbound travelers who spent huge amount of money during their vacations abroad.
Citing the figures released by the International Luxury Travel Market Asia (ILTMA), the minister said Chinese travelers spend 242.109 trillion rupiah (about 16.4 billion U.S. dollars) per year, making them part of big spender tourists in the world.
In average Chinese tourists spend some 1,019 U.S. dollars per person in each of their outbound vacation trip, he added.
