businessinsider.com Chinese police will be patrolling the streets of Paris this summer alongside their French counterparts to help combat a surge in attacks against high-spending Chinese tourists.
The French authorities are determined to improve security for more than a million Chinese tourists who visit the capital for shopping and sightseeing each year.
Their habit of carrying large amounts of cash has made them a “prime target for muggers and pickpockets”, a police source said.
Chinese visitors to Paris are estimated to spend an average of €1,470 (£1,205) each on shopping, mainly buying designer brands, according to Global Blue, the Swiss-based duty free services company.
