PATA has appointed Mr Bo Wu as Regional
Director-China, effective 30 December 2013.
Mr Wu replaces Ms Kate Chang, who served in the
position for eight years, and who has been invited to assume the
position of Chairperson of the PATA China Chapter next year.
Prior to joining PATA, Mr Wu served as Executive
Director of the State of Hawaii Office in Beijing. His extensive
knowledge of China’s travel industry helped build successful
two-way tourism, aviation, business and educational exchanges
between Hawaii and China.
Before his Hawaii State Office role, Mr
Wu spent 10 years in the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA), most notably as Deputy Director of the America and Europe
Division of CNTA.
PATA CEO, Martin Craigs, said that the new appointment
demonstrates PATA’s ever-stronger relations with the China travel
industry and CNTA. “Our engagement of Bo shows PATA consolidating
its close relations and building on its successful track record in
China, the world’s largest visitor economy. Bo’s intimate
understanding of the tourism industry in China gives PATA many
exciting new opportunities to build business for members,” Mr
Wu will be based in PATA’s Beijing office
