Taipei, Nov. 23 (CNA) Taiwan’s efforts to attract tourists are expected to help the nation achieve the goal of 11 million visitors this year, Minister without Portfolio Chang Ching-sen (張景森) said Friday.
With the government’s New Southbound Policy bearing fruit, Taiwan is poised to see 11 million visitors this year, Chang said during the opening of the annual Taipei International Travel Fair, which is being held at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center through Nov. 26.
Taiwan received 10 million visitors for the first time in 2015, and has maintained that level for the last two years.
Hopefully we will be able to achieve 12 million visitors next year, he added.
