China's RV industry to support campsite construction

A report in the China Daily newspaper says the RV industry is expecting to cooperate with the government to boost campsite construction to support its buoyant RV market.

It says that by 2020, there were about 1,900 RV campsites in China, mainly in eastern, northern and southwestern regions, according to huaon.com, an information consulting platform.

Apparently, policies supporting the industry are included in the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) and the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25). Both call for building more campgrounds, with the latter further pointing out the need to create an overall tourism industry chain centered on RVs.

According to business registration tracker QichachaAmid, there were 6,941 newly registered campsite-related companies in China in the first half of 2021 alone, up 286.5 percent year-on-year. There were about 21,000 campsite-related companies in operation as of May 2021.

According to Economic Information Daily, the Hainan province, a renowned tourist destination, had about 70 RV campsites by May 2021, and has issued a plan for tourism development (2017-30) which underscores the importance of establishing RV campsites, planning RV road trips and building eco-friendly international-standard motels and RV camping bases, .
