Great Britain reviews the visa policy in order to make it easier for Chinese to travel to the country as tourists, businessmen, workers or students.
The number of Chinese travelers increases quickly. Last year, there were 70 million trips to other countries where 3 million went to Europe, but only 120 000 to the UK.
Increased tourism results in more job opportunities and increased revenues to the treasury. According to the organization World Luxury Association, the Chinese spent the entire 7.2 billion U.S. dollars in January 2012 in other countries during the Spring Festival Holiday.
