Taiwan tourism growth tops Asia

Tourism grew in Taiwan faster than anywhere else in Asia last year on the back of an influx of Chinese visitors, a report said yesterday, quoting a top government official.
Taiwan reported a 14 percent rise in visitor numbers to 4.395 million in 2009 compared to an average two percent fall across Asia, the Commercial Times quoted tourism bureau deputy director Hsieh Wei-chun as saying. The number of Chinese visitors increased nearly 200 percent from the previous year to just under one million people.
