Southwest China's Yunnan Province on April 25 began handing out vouchers worth 300 million yuan (about 45.7 million U.S. dollars) to boost tourism.
The vouchers, consisting of 200 million yuan for consumption of tourist products and services, and 100 million yuan for consumption at gas stations, will be handed out in several rounds within the year to consumers in Yunnan and neighboring provinces, said the provincial government.
The provincial bureau of culture and tourism said the move aims to stimulate cultural and tourism consumption and boost market confidence.
