Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 5 October 2009

PATA has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the China Outbound Tourism Research Institute (COTRI) to prepare jointly a series of practical manuals and training modules for service providers in the travel and tourism sector.

The MoU, signed in Hangzhou China (PRC) paves the way for COTRI and PATA to provide travel professionals worldwide with down-to-earth know-how for engaging successfully with specific markets.

The first of these, to be released 8 October 2009, equips travel industry professionals with the right practical knowledge so that they may respond to the rapidly growing outbound market from the Peoples Republic of China. The aim is to ensure that these outbound travellers enjoy a memorable trip by providing superior customer service.

Weve witnessed extraordinary growth in outbound travel movements from China to destinations all over the world at a pace and in numbers that, frankly, would have been difficult to contemplate a couple of decades ago, said PATA CEO Greg Duffell. But this is just the beginning. The global travel industry must now gear up to provide service at levels that this increasingly discerning market from the Peoples Republic of China wants and expects and these guides from PATA and COTRI will help achieve that.

This first manual addresses the need for travel and tourism industry staff to recognise that visitors from the worlds most populous nation deserve appropriate consideration. Dr Wolfgang Arlt, COTRIs editorial team leader, described the series of publications as enabling you to know more about how Chinese wish and deserve to be treated.
