With domestic population migration becoming a common scene, unexpected natural disasters, accidents and security breaches are on the rise with frequent losses of lives. Overseas situations like natural disasters, war and turmoil, political instability in destination countries are contributing to the gradually deteriorating life security of Chinese travelers, who are seeing far more incidents. By the end of 2013, the number of Chinese businesses operating abroad has reached over 20,000 with more Chinese seeking employment in foreign nations, where regional turbulences escalate risks they face. Another spiking trend that is behind the growing tourist population traveling abroad is the rising living standards over the years. With Chinese outbound tourist visits reaching 100 million in 2013, it is expected that by 2020, Chinese outbound visits will reach 150 million and traveling incidents will be on the rise. For frequent travelers, it has turned into an urgent demand to be able to evacuate quickly under sickness, injury and security threat conditions with the aid of Chinese nationals to the safety and comfort of home and receive thorough medical treatment under warm environment.
