Expert: Entry curbs on Chinese affecting Japan, ROK's tourism, economy

China announced it was suspending issuing port visas and halting the 72/144-hour visa-free transit policy for citizens of the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan. Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang said the move is reasonable as it is in response to the ROK and Japan's discriminatory entry restrictions targeting Chinese citizens. Victor Gao, chair professor at Soochow University, says the two countries' discriminatory entry restrictions are affecting their tourism sector and local economy.
