Tourism Ministers from China, Japan and South Korea are holding their fifth meeting in Hangzhou in east China to discuss tourism-related issues.

It's estimated that 17 million tourists will visit the three countries this year alone. China's National Tourism Bureau and Foreign Direct Investment Department say they are speeding up work to allow Japanese and South Korean tourism companies into China. However, they will have to be exceptionally run and financially stable.

Officials hope China's domestic tourism industry will learn from foreign companies and upgrade their services too. Between January and July this year, the number of Japanese and South Korean tourists, to China increased by 25 percent, compared to the same time last year.
