Chinese tourism delegation arrives in Taiwan for travel fair

Taipei, Oct. 28 (CNA) A Chinese tourism delegation, headed by National Tourism Administration Vice Chairman Wang Zhifa, arrived in Taiwan Wednesday for a cross-Taiwan Strait travel fair that is scheduled to open Oct. 30 in Taipei City.
Upon arrival at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, Wang said that the delegation is the biggest from China ever to attend a travel fair in Taiwan.
The Chinese group is comprised of 486 representatives of 308 different tourism offices in provinces, administrative regions and cities, and travel agencies throughout mainland China, Wang noted.
He expressed the hope that the delegation's participation in the fourth Cross-Strait Taipei Travel Fair will help boost cross-strait exchanges and cooperation in the travel industry.
The travel fair -- jointly organized by the Taiwan Visitors Association and the Beijing-based Cross-Straits Tourism Exchange Association (CTEA) -- will be held in conjunction with the 2009 Taipei International Travel Fair at the Taipei World Trade Center Oct. 30-Nov. 2.
Wang is heading the delegation in his capacity as CTEA deputy chairman.
Li Weiyi, chief of China's Taiwan Affairs Office Department of Exchange, is also part of the group.
