On May 19, CNTA Chairman Shao Qiwei met with Anna Kachikho, Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Culture of Malawi and her entourage.


     
Shao said that with continuous economic development, China’s tourism industry has stepped into a fast-growing stage while its exchange and cooperation with the rest of the world is constantly deepening. China is willing to extend the cooperative relationship with Malawi and other African countries in tourism. China and Malawi should encourage their tourism enterprises to participate in the international tourism exhibitions held by either party and enhance their cooperation in tourism promotion and marketing. Malawi has so far been little known by Chinese citizens. In response, Malawi could promote a couple of tourist routes together with neighboring African countries and attract more Chinese visitors by turning resources into products.


     
Following a brief introduction to tourism resources and the development of tourism industry in Malawi, Anna Kachikho pointed out that her visit to Anhui province and Beijing has left her with a strong impression about tourism development in China that besides rich tourism resources, China is also doing well in the administration of tourism industry. Malawi and China should be working shoulder to shoulder to boost the development of tourism together.     

      

Notes: Located in the southeast of Africa, the Republic of Malawi (capital: Lilongwe) has an estimated population of 15 million, most of whom are ethnically black and speak Bantu languages. On December 28, 2007, China and Malawi recognized each other and established diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level.
