Will the Increase in Maximum of Chinese Tourists to Taiwan Affect Quality of Domestic Tourism? Legislator Says No
On November 30, the Tourism Bureau under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) announced the new tourism policy at congress. Legislators questioned the Minster of Transportation and Communications, Chen Jian-Yu, that the ministry promised to regulate the total number of Chinese tourists, but recently it declared to adjust the maximum number of these tourists per day, which may have a major impact on the domestic tourism industry.
The National Development Council thinks there are ways to strengthen exporting services. Tourism in Taiwan is a part of the service industry; therefore there is still room for improvement and will be the focus for the second half of the year.
Starting from October 1, Chinese visitors to Taiwan must possess certificate for both travel and health insurance that cover sudden illnesses, or else they will not be issued a Taiwan entry permit.
