Is China going to bail out a world in crisis? This question is asked in many variations and the tourism industry is one of them. Are the Chinese tourists going to replace the tourists from other parts of the world, or will they stay at home to support their own economy? What are the possibilities of the tourism industry in China? Are the hotels remaining empty or is this the time for foreign companies to enter the China market?

On April 2, 2009 the China Speakers Bureau will host a second Global China chat, this time with China tourism guru Roy Graff of China Contact. This time we will have two sessions, to facilitate different time zones, one for Asia/Europe, the other for the Americas and Europe. The chat will be hosted by Maria Korolov.
