Updates on China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism
Updated website information for china's new ministry of culture and tourism, which absorbed the former china national tourism administration (cnta) in march 2018..
In March, 2018, the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) was absorbed into a new, larger government ministry, called the Ministry of Culture and Tourism (MCT), which combines the former CNTA with the Ministry of Culture (MOC). What does this mean for outbound tourism?
Although the CNTA has been dissolved, the change actually gives tourism greater importance in the Chinese government, argues Jing Travel , especially outbound tourism.
On a more practical level for those working in the travel industry, the old CNTA website is now defunct. Instead, you should visit the new MTC website for official Chinese-language tourism-related news and policy.
There’s also a new website where you can download the list of the 4,000+ Chinese travel agencies that are officially licensed for outbound tourism. A Chinese agency needs to have this kind of outbound license to be able to operate leisure tour groups and packaged tours to international destinations, but it is not required for flight- or hotel-only bookings for individuals.

THE STATE COUNCIL
THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA
China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism inaugurated in Beijing
The newly-formed Ministry of Culture and Tourism was inaugurated on April 8 as a sign reflecting its name was placed outside its Beijing headquarters. Earlier in March, the People’s Republic of China announced that the Ministry of Culture and the China National Tourism Administration would merge into the Ministry of Culture and Tourism at the first session of the 13th National People’s Congress.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism’s headquarters is located in Dongcheng District of China’s capital city. It was established to coordinate the development of China’s cultural and tourism industries, enhancing the country’s soft power and cultural influence.
Former minister of culture Luo Shugang was elected as the new minister of culture and tourism, and Li Jinzao was appointed vice-minister.
China’s national legislature adopted a massive cabinet restructuring plan to make the government better structured, more efficient, and service-oriented in March.
According to the plan, a total of seven new ministries and commissions will be created, including the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Ministry of Natural Resources, Ministry of Ecological Environment, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, National Health Commission, Ministry of Veterans Affairs and the Ministry of Emergency Management.
The country will complete establishing its new departments in mid-April.

EDITORIAL: China's new Ministry of Culture and Tourism
The merging of the china national tourism administration and the ministry of culture speaks volumes about beijing's view towards the role of outbound travel, by prof. dr. wolfgang georg arlt frgs fras.
Last week, the world of Chinese outbound tourism changed. Not only was Xi Jinping reappointed as president of China by all 2,970 members of the National People’s Congress (NPC), with no more limit on the number of terms he can serve, a major change also took place for tourism. On the 13 th of March State Councillor Wang Yong announced that within the institutional restructuring plan of the State Council the Ministry of Culture and CNTA China National Tourism Administration are to be merged into a new Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
The move, according to the official announcement, “… is aimed at coordinating the development of cultural and tourism industries, enhancing the country’s soft power and cultural influence, and promoting cultural exchanges internationally”.
There had been rumours for many years that the CNTA would either be upgraded to full ministry status or that it would be swallowed up by the Ministry of Culture. It seems that, assuming that the State Council plan will not encounter any opposition in the NPC, the Ministry of Culture now has won this battle.
For outbound tourism it is very interesting that “enhancing [China’s] soft power and cultural influence and promoting cultures exchanges internationally” are the main arguments, pointing clearly towards outbound tourism as opposite to domestic or inbound tourism. It also spells out in remarkably clear words what China’s outbound tourism is all about from the government’s point of view: Soft power and increased influence. Good news therefore about this confirmation of the ongoing support of the Chinese government for outbound tourism despite the hundreds of billions of USD deficit when considering the spending by Chinese travellers abroad compared to the spending of international visitors to China and the anti-hedonism campaign still going on in many other fields.
The history of the CNTA dates back to 1964, when it was established within CITS China International Travel Service. At this stage, government function and enterprise management was combined; CNTA and CITS had different names but shared the same staff. In 1982, as part of the policy of separation of enterprise from administration, CITS became specialised in all travel-related service, while CNTA concentrated on national tourism management. Still, CNTA still has been until now commercially active, for instance as the organiser of CITM China International Travel Market, the main Chinese tourism fair.
What will happen to Dr. Li Jinzao – the CNTA chairman who has worked tirelessly to put Chinese tourism as a topic onto the national and international agenda – remains to be seen. He might fully concentrate in the future on his role within the recently-established WTA World Tourism Alliance, of which he is the official “founder” according to the WTA website.
Certainly, with Xi Jinping moving closer to being the new “emperor” of China, and tourism finally given ministerial status, the fundamentals of China’s outbound tourism have changed more than ever since the introduction of the ADS Approved Destination Status system in 1995 and the 1997 proclamation of the “Provisional measures concerning the administration of outbound travel of Chinese citizens at their own expense”, which for the first time officially recognised the existence of the wish of Chinese citizens to travel internationally for leisure purposes.
As COTRI has been saying for years: China’s outbound tourism – You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
