The South Korean government will introduce a special privilege card that aims to entice wealthy Chinese tourists to the country, reports the website of Hong Kong newspaper Ta Kung Pao.
The South Korean embassy in China said late last month that the new card may be issued to Chinese citizens who have spent more than US$30,000 shopping in South Korea over the past five years or those who can show that they hold more than 50 million won (US$46,300) in a bank account and own a platinum credit card. Others eligible for the card include central government officials and well-known celebrities.
