“The Shanghai office serves as HotelsPro’s China and Asia-Pacific sales center. For the past years, we have seen great potential in Asia-Pacific market. Especially China, according to the statistics only 5% of Chinese citizens are holding passport and with no doubt there will be huge space to grow. A combination of China’s fast-emerging middle class, improved transport links and more favorable policies make China the biggest travel market for outbound tourism.

With its presence in Shanghai, better service and efficient support will be given to the travel agencies across the Greater China Region,” said Jinyan Li, HotelsPro’s Regional Director of Asia-Pacific and China.
