Deputy Minister: For the 10 months of 2019, 14.500 Chinese citizens  visited Armenia

ArmInfo. For the 10 months of 2019, 14.500 Chinese citizens visited Armenia. In January-October 2018, 8430 Chinese citizens visited, and 8450 people left for from  Armenia to China. On November 25, introducing the draft agreement on  the abolition of the visa regime between Armenia and China, Deputy  Foreign Minister Avet Adonts said at a meeting of the Foreign  Relations Commission of the National Assembly of the Republic of  Armenia.

According to him, the abolition of the visa regime between the two  states will lead to even greater growth in the tourist flow from  China, will strengthen opportunities for contacts between  representatives of business structures, and will intensify bilateral  trade and economic relations.

As the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Republic of Armenia noted, if,  in the presence of visa restrictions, the flow of tourists is  currently growing at a fast pace, then with their withdrawal one can  expect a real boom. The agreement, as the deputy minister noted, was  signed on May 26 of this year. The purpose of the document is to  stimulate the development of friendly relations between Armenia and  China, as well as facilitate mutual visits of citizens of the two  countries. The agreement provides that citizens with ordinary  passports, upon entering the country or in transit, will be exempted  from the need to obtain a visa when they are in the host country for  up to 90 days within six months. If the citizens of the two countries  plan to stay for study or work, they will have to apply for a visa.

It should be noted that earlier Ambassador of China to Armenia Tian  Erlong, reported that the trade turnover between Armenia and China  over the 9 months amounted to $ 650 million, having increased by 50%  compared to the same period last year.

In turn, on November 14, RA Minister of Economy Tigran Khachatryan  noted that in 2019 the tourist flow from China to Armenia increased  by 42.1%. The Minister expressed confidence that the growth rate of  tourism will continue in 2020. 6.3 billion drams will be allocated  from the state budget for the development of the sector next year.
