Romania values the Chinese tourism outbound source market and will participate in the ITB Shanghai International Tourism Fair, the Romanian Tourism Ministry said Friday in a statement.
Romania will be present at the 3-day event in Shanghai with an 18-square-meter stand, within the European Union pavilion, according to the ministry.
Four local tour operators — GDS.Travel, Rolandia, Exact Tours and Phoenix Travels — will attend ITB Shanghai on behalf of Romania and promote the country as tourist’s destination.
One of the four exhibitors, Phoenix Travels, is a company run by a Chinese businessman living in Bucharest.
