China is waiting – what's keeping us?

 

China has more than a million dollar millionaires, their number has
swelled by 31% in 2010, according to Bloomberg, they're within eight
hours' flying and pretty well in the same time zone as us.

That's the good news.
The bad news is we don't have much of an idea of how to turn them into customers for our ailing tourism industry.
Alice photographer Steve Strike is a five year veteran of the China trade, focussing on art and special tours.
He says the only way to success in China is the hard, old-fashioned way: Footslogging and nurturing personal relationships.

"They want to deal with the operators direct, face to face, with people they have met and have a rapport with." ERWIN CHLANDA reports. PHOTOS: Above – Art dealer Sun Kongyang from Shanghai trying a grub. Above right – Jade
Yang and Mr Sun with local artists Audrey Nampitjinpa and Doreen

tourism operator Steve Strike.
