Mainland personal trips to Taiwan exceed 1 mln

SHANGHAI, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Over one million personal trips have been made to Taiwan by Chinese mainland visitors so far this year, according to official data released at the ongoing China International Travel Mart.

Li Jinzao, director of the China National Tourism Administration, said tourism cooperation across the Taiwan Strait will be enhanced and the mainland's travel sector should learn more about management, marketing and catering from Taiwan.

The number of trips from the Chinese mainland to Taiwan will surpass 3 million by the end of the year, according to statistics by the Taiwan Strait Tourism Association.

Meanwhile, total mainland trips to Taiwan since 2008 exceeded 10 million earlier this month, including 8.3 million group trips and 1.7 personal trips.
