CANBERRA Cheap Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys , July 18 (Xinhua) -- Australian hotels need to keep up with the demands placed on them by Chinese tourists, Tourism Australia's boss said on Tuesday.

The remarks came after international research showed that Chinese tourists were less inclined to travel to Australia compared to a year ago.

The research, undertaken by the Expedia-owned Hotels website, found that Australia was third on the list of destinations Chinese tourists intend on traveling to in the next 12 months, down from being No. 1 last year.

Travelers coming from China said Australian hotels were simply under-equipped to handle Chinese tourists Terrance Ferguson Thunder Jersey , with many indicating that a lack of Mandarin speaking staff was a problem, in addition to no support for payment facilities such as China Union Pay.

On Tuesday, Tourism Australia managing director John O'Sullivan told News Corp that while Chinese tourists wanted to visit Australia, the lack of support was proving detrimental for the tourism industry.

"The challenge for Australian tourism providers is how to keep pace with this demand," O'Sullivan said.

But some hotels have recognized the challenges and are actively trying to better accommodate Chinese travelers.

Chief operating officer of Accor Hotels Steven Adams Thunder Jersey , Simon McGrath said his company had launched its Chinese Optimum Services Standards more than five years ago, meaning a number of locations were equipped to deal with Mandarin speakers.

"Today these standards have been adopted by over 50 of our hotels and we as a business continue to grow in this area as we learn more about what our Chinese guests are looking for in -accommodation in Australia," McGrath said.

Meanwhile the boss of Mantra hotels, Bob East said that while hotels in locations geared towards international tourists should be keeping up with demands from China, there were many hotels in less-popular areas which are primarily aimed at domestic tourism.

"It's a matter of tailoring the product around your most likely target market Shawn Kemp Thunder Jersey ," East told News Corp.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 6 (Xinhua) -- California Governor Jerry Brown said Thursday his state on the U.S. west coast will convene the world's climate leaders for the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit.

"It's up to you and it's up to me and tens of millions of other people to get it together to roll back the forces of carbonization and join together to combat the existential threat of climate change," the gorvernor told his audience at the Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg, Germany, via a video message. "That is why we're having the Climate Action Summit in San Francisco Russell Westbrook Thunder Jersey , September 2018."

"President Trump is trying to get out of the Paris Agreement, but he doesn't speak for the rest of America," Brown said about the U.S. president's withdrawal from the international agreement on climate change in early June, adding that "we in California and in states all across America believe it's time to act Raymond Felton Thunder Jersey , it's time to join together and that's why at this Climate Action Summit we're going to get it done."

To be held ahead of the 24th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 24), the summit in San Francisco, a city in Northern California, will be the first time a U.S. state hosts an international climate change conference with the direct goal of supporting the Paris Agreement.

The event is expected to gather representatives from subnational governments, businesses Ray Allen Thunder Jersey , investors and civil society to demonstrate the groundswell of innovative, ambitious climate action from leaders worldwide, highlight the economic and environmental transition already underway and spur deeper commitment from all parties.

"We have to do something and we can do it."

The announcement Paul George Thunder Jersey , according to a news release from the governor's office, is the product of months of discussions between Brown and Christiana Figueres, former United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Executive Secretary, who encouraged the governor to host a summit in 2018 in California to drive further climate action.
