Centre on the outer in visitor trade with China, but commission head says Tourism NT 'will make every effort' to fix problem

UPDATE October 13:

“China will definitely be a key tourism destination for Australia and The Northern Territory for many years to come," says Michael Bridge, named by Chief Minister Terry Mills as the chairman of the yet to be formed NT tourist commission. "Tourism NT will be ensuring that every effort is made to entice those tourists to the NT."

 

Central Australia is on the outer in the quest for more tourists from China, according to Alice Springs businessman Steve Strike, who's been running a promotional office in Guangzhou for nearly three years.

He says there is clearly a confidential agreement, which is reciprocal, between Australia and China to ensure visitors return and are not given asylum if applied for. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
