Taiwan And Mainland To Set Up Tourism Offices In Beijing And Taipei

The director of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, Lai Sezhen, told local media that Taiwan and the mainland are planning to set up tourism offices in Beijing and Taipei by the end of 2009.

Taiwan Strait Tourism Association and Cross-Strait Tourism Exchange Association made the decision during a meeting held in Hong Kong in early July. The offices will be in charge of such tourism related affairs as complaints handling.

According to Lai, the tourism offices will be of great help in offering tourism information to tourists across the Strait.
