Australia will be rolling out the red carpet for Chinese tourists with a string of initiatives to entice the nation’s growing middle class to come spend their money Down Under.
“The more Chinese come to Australia, Australians go to China, the closer we become together, the better we understand each other,” he told reporters at Shanghai’s Expo Centre on Thursday.
China is Australia’s most valuable tourism market, contributing $8.3 billion to the economy with more than one million visitors last year.

“It makes Australia more accessible, more available, more compelling as a tourism destination,” Mr Turnbull said.
