India and China have expressed their willingness to strengthen bilateral tourism cooperation. This was decided at a meeting between Zhu Shanzhong,  vice chairman of China National Tourism Administration and Girish Shankar, additional secretary, Ministry of Tourism in New Delhi on Friday.          
It was also decided that exchange visit of students and faculty from Hotel Management Institutes between the two countries which started in September 2007 may be continued on regular basis. Both the sides were of the opinion that faculty exchange programmes should be organised between the Human Resource Development Institutes in India and China.

It was also decided that a special programme can be organized wherein the HRD experts from India and China can visit some of the Institutes in both countries and interact with the teaching faculty through conferences and seminars. Tour Operators and Travel Agents of both the countries may interact with each other in order to promote two way tourism between India and China. The possibilities for promoting more package tours in either of the countries could also be explored by the travel trade of the two countries. Both the countries would like to exchange relevant information/statistics with regard to tourist arrivals, targets and projection, infrastructure facilities, etc.
