A growth rate of 3.6 per cent is predicted despite uncertain trade relationships between China and the US and a slowing Chinese travel demand. The expected growth of International tourist arrivals is in line with the annual historical average from 2008-2018, but lower than that of 2018 (6.1 per cent).
