In 2014 Australia became the most preferred overseas travel destination for Chinese visitors. During the 12 month period the number of Chinese visitors to Australia grew by 17.8% contributing 5.7 billion dollars to the Australian economy. The New Visitor Economy will focus on the new local economic opportunities created by the increasing number of Chinese visitors to­ Sydney and the freeing up of trade between China and Australia through the signing of the China Australia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) in Canberra this year on June 17.
