报告题目：China’s Belt and Road Initiative and Innovation for Sustainable Tourism of Outbound Chinese to Australia
报告摘要：China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has drawn a lot of attention in the world for its infrastructure investment in BR countries and its impacts on sustainable development in participating countries. Although Australia is not one of the BR countries, at the end of 2018, Victoria has become the first state to pledge to sign up to the BRI to join China’s global trade and economic activities. This report examines the innovation for sustainable tourism of outbound Chinese to the popular Southeast Asian countries and Australia and it predominantly explores how Australia’s tourism sector benefits from the BRI effects and the booming outbound Chinese tourism industry. The authors consider what actions should be taken to attract more Chinese tourists to Australia and how to maintain the sustainable tourism of Chinese market in Australia and what challenges and opportunities are faced while promoting Chinese tourism to Australia in a more sustainable way.
