China continues to boost California tourism growth

China continues to boost California tourism growth
- China, California's No 1 overseas tourist market, continues to contribute to the travel and tourism industry, the state's key economic driver, which expanded for the seventh consecutive year in 2016.
Tourism spending in 2016 injected a record $126 billion into California's economy, a 3.1 percent increase over 2015, outpacing the nation by nearly a percentage point, according to an annual economic impact report released by Visit California this month.
The tourism industry generated $10.3 billion in tax revenue and supported 1.1 million jobs in the state last year, said the report. It shows travelers in California have spent nearly $2.16 trillion, created more than 410,000 jobs and generated more than $165.3 billion in local and state tax revenues in the past 25 years.
