TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Outbound tourism has lagged domestic travel, as flight capacities have not yet recovered to pre-pandemic levels.

VERBATIM: The anticipated boost to China’s economy is expected to occur during the 8-day autumn holiday period, which is currently underway. This year’s holiday began with the Mid-Autumn Festival and also includes the October 1st National Day. The public holidays end on October sixth. Typically hundreds of millions of Chinese travel at home and overseas during such holidays and this is the first one since COVID-19 pandemic restrictions were lifted last December.
