Business Travel in China
The business travel market continues to grow with China expected to overtake the United States as the largest business travel market in the world this year. However, the fragile growth forecasted for the rest of the world and a new administration in US in 2017 have created uncertainty which could impact corporate travel. What will be the risks and drivers to growth for the travel market in China? How should global travel providers be navigating the landscape? How can we mitigate against these risks?

In this session, we listen to industry experts discuss the key risks and growth drivers in 2017.
