Island businesses and the provincial government are developing new strategies to meet the demand of more Chinese visitors.

The province is also encouraging tourism operators to add Motion Pay, which allows Chinese customers to make purchases with their mobile devices. “There’s a real focus and need to have convenience for the Chinese customer so we wanted to take action on that,” said Kevin Mouflier, the CEO for Tourism Industry Association of PEI (TIAPEI).

The system is fairly new to the region, but Mouflier said the goal is to have hotels, cottages, and golf courses incorporate the new payment system at their businesses. Click here to read more on CBC News.
