Chinese visitor 'toolkit' available on web

A new website is helping New Zealand tourism operators deliver quality experiences to the growing numbers of Chinese visitors.

The ''China Toolkit'' is an output of the China Market Review, released earlier this year by Prime Minister and Tourism Minister John Key.

It was funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and developed by Tourism New Zealand.

The four segments are. -

• About China: Learn the basics about China, its people, culture and how to do business.

• Getting Ready: Making sure operators are prepared for Chinese visitors in language, etiquette, food and other services.

• Market Intelligence: Tap into the wealth of information available to help with business planning.

• Information for Visitors: Access material, much of it in Chinese, to provide to Chinese visitors.

The segments have links to website content which will be regularly updated.
