For the past few decades, China has stunned the world with its rapid development. One area that is developing at an even higher rate than the economy of the People’s Republic of China in general is tourism. Thanks to the tourism industry, China has overcome poverty. Due to its geographical and geopolitical position and natural conditions, China has excellent opportunities to develop various types of tourism. International tourism is a critical mechanism for integrating China’s economy into the world economy. Given China’s scale of development, which is among the world leaders, domestic tourism plays an increasingly important role in the country’s economy. All this makes studying specific features of tourism development in China very relevant. China sets domestic and international standards and regulations to regulate the tourism industry. The legislation includes safety and quality of service rules, visa requirements, and measures to preserve natural and cultural resources. China is a member of international tourism organizations such as the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), a component of sharing experiences and implementing international standards. Participation in such organizations allows China to interact with other countries, share experiences, and participate in defined international standards. China considers international standards and best practices in the field to raise the quality of services and ensure the safety and comfort of tourists. China is actively developing both domestic and international tourism. This gives the company the desire to develop its tourism resources and attract the attention of foreign visitors. China implements measures to control and standardize tourism activities through licensing and other mechanisms. This is aimed at ensuring the quality and safety of tourist services. China’s tourism development strategy also promotes the inclusion of cultural exchange through tourism, which promotes mutual understanding and the development of diplomatic relations. Given the importance of environmental sustainability, China considers measures to preserve natural resources and places. China can regulate the visa regime for foreign tourists, changing the requirements and conditions of the visit according to its strategic and security interests. China actively offers its tourist attractions at the international level, helping to attract foreign tourists. In connection with global challenges such as the pandemic, China considers international standards for the safety and health of tourists by implementing appropriate measures and protocols. China can develop and maintain bilateral and multilateral ties with other countries to jointly implement tourism projects and exchange cultural experiences. In general, China’s international tourism regulation emphasizes the country’s desire to ensure stable, safe, and sustainable tourism development, promoting both domestic and international tourism. Considering these aspects, China is interested in cooperating with the international community and complying with international standards to improve the competitiveness of its tourism sector and ensure the satisfaction and safety of tourists.
