China’s business travel market will continue to show strong growth over the next 18 months, with total business travel spending forecast to grow by 12.5% in 2012 to $195 billion, followed by another 14.7% in 2013, according to a report out lately by GBTA (Global Business Travel Association).

The report also noted that Chinese business travel spending is one of the highest in the world, second only to the US – GBTA believes that at current prevailing growth rates, and with the increased investment in infrastructure, China will pass the US by 2014 to become the country with the highest level of business travel spend.
