China’s Reopening: Opportunities in 2023
The reopening has been warmly welcomed by both Chinese consumers and global economists alike, with China’s GDP growth forecasts being revised up to 5.3% for 2023. Within days of the rule relaxation, more than 280,000 travellers registered to travel to Hong Kong after a cap of 50,000/day was implemented to help manage capacity.
UK-China flight connections are expecting to gradually normalize over the course of 2023 with a wide choice of direct routes from major domestic and international carriers planned to resume between March and the summer. We are delighted to see an uptick in interest from our members and partners to visit China during 2023 and vice versa to the UK – enabling business and trade to resume under a backdrop of normalized circumstances.
