The Ministry of Culture and Tourism made the prediction on Sunday at a press conference, citing data from the China Tourism Academy, which is under the ministry.

As of mid-September, 29,694 travel agencies had resumed operations, accounting for 75.7% of the total, and group tourism recovered to about 40% of the year-earlier level, said the ministry.
