China’s resort towns have been hit hard by the collapse of the resort bubble, and their businesses have struggled to find jobs.
A new survey from the University of Calgary finds that some Chinese restaurants have been forced to close, while others have been liquidated.
According to a report by the Chinese restaurant association, the majority of the Chinese restaurants are in the province of Qinghai, where they are located in tourist resorts.
They were established in the late 1980s, when the resort was still a relatively small business.
The number of Chinese establishments in Qinghai is estimated at 50,000, according to the report.
In 2016, the province experienced a devastating earthquake and tsunami that claimed at least 12,000 lives, and the number of hotels and other property that are listed on the mainland Chinese real estate market has plummeted.
In the past five years, a number of new Chinese hotels have opened, including some that opened last month in the popular Chinese resort of Xi’an, a city of over 10 million people in the north-west of the province.
But while the province is struggling, it is not the only province that is experiencing problems.
In British Columbia, some hotels and restaurants have closed, as have several restaurants that have been serving traditional Chinese cuisine.
The BC Restaurant Association has issued an urgent call for the closure of more than 40 restaurants in Vancouver, where restaurants have struggled in recent years.
“There are a lot of Chinese people in Vancouver and the restaurant community, and they’re being targeted by these Chinese restaurants,” said Bob Trewin, the association’s director of operations.
“They’re targeting Chinese food, and that’s really scary for us.”
The BRA’s survey was commissioned by the B.C. Restaurant Association, which has issued a number other reports, including one this month, which found that many of its members were experiencing the same challenges.
While the province has been hit hardest by the economic downturn, some businesses are still thriving in the rest of Canada.
B.C.’s new premier, Christy Clark, has promised to expand the province’s tourist industry, which is expected to be worth $3.2 billion by 2019.
Some Chinese restaurants, however, are struggling.
Trewin says that while he understands the concerns that some local businesses have about the resort industry, he says they are not a concern for the Chinese community in the BC.
“We know that Chinese restaurants here in Canada are the most vulnerable.
We know that the Chinese are the biggest victims of this,” Trewintin said.
“But if we do what we can to help them, that’s all that really matters.”
Brie Hsu, a spokesperson for the BRA, said the association does not believe that the resort businesses have been targeted.
“They have been here since the 1980s.
The province has done everything it can to support them and they’ve always been successful in providing them with a solid, stable base to operate in the city,” she said.
The B.S. Chamber of Commerce is not supportive of the resorts closure, and is calling for a moratorium on Chinese restaurants.
“These restaurants have operated for generations and will continue to do so, providing affordable, quality Chinese food and dining experiences to our members and their guests,” the BCS said in a statement.
“If Chinese restaurants continue to be targeted, we will consider imposing additional measures on them to ensure they stay in business and contribute to our community.”
