“During my time in Australia and New Zealand I have been fascinated and privileged to hear many different stories and perspectives about China from those who have travelled to my home country”, says Dr Kuang Lin, Director China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) Australia & New Zealand.
“With assistance from our trusted partner, CHINA READY & ACCREDITED, CNTA (Australia & New Zealand) has been able to bring together a collection of the most memorable China travel experiences through the eyes of a variety of outstanding Australian and New Zealand leaders who have enjoyed an engagement with China in their own special way” writes Dr Kuang in the foreword to a beautiful new book called “My Memorable China Travel Experience”.
The first time such an endeavour has been undertaken, the publication was initiated by Dr Kuang and CNTA with support from CHINA READY, China Eastern Airlines, and China Travel Service (NZ).
The book is dedicated to promoting “Beautiful China” and highlighting China as a “must see, must experience” tourist destination for Australian and New Zealand people.
It contains the stories of 20 outstanding Australian and New Zealand leaders who are emotionally attached through their experience of China and are committed to developing positive communication and exchanges.
“They have become China’s tourism ambassadors as they have generously shared what they saw, heard and thought about during their journeys in China” writes Dr Kuang.”
“China-Australia and China-New Zealand are friendly partners in the Asia-Pacific region”, continues Dr Kuang. “They show mutual respect in political affairs, have complimentary economies, and learn from each other culturally. Tourism exchanges play an important and unique role in these bilateral relationships. They feature an expanding cooperation and stronger communication, and have become an important channel in enhancing diplomatic relationships, people to people friendships, and the well-being of the community at large”.
