The latest drawcard for Asian tourists | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

What does NSW have up its sleeve to bring the lucrative Asian traveller down under? According to Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events, Stuart Ayres, the foodies from Asia will be looking to Australia for their next oyster. Food lovers across Asia will be tucking into fresh NSW oysters less than 30 hours after the produce is harvested, making this the latest in Australian attractions to bring the lucrative Asian tourist down under. During his first trade mission, Ayres said the innovative NSW oyster exporters would expertly cater to China's growing appetite for fresh, seasonal produce. China is the top market for international guests to NSW with 500,000 visitors - an increase of 19% from the previous year.
