Package tours resume in China after nearly six months

Pandemic has been under control since March but tourism's 'reality is still grim'

Tourists visit Yu Garden in Shanghai on July 4. Around 6% of China's population, or 80 million people, are indirectly employed by the tourism sector.

China's tourism industry is back in business -- at least according to the ministry that oversees it.

After a nearly six-month shutdown, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism (MCT) issued a directive Wednesday calling for the resumption of domestic tourism trade in all regions with a low coronavirus risk.
