Lusa - Business News - Macau: Tourism Services promoting packages which exclude Hong Kong




Macau, China, Oct. 8, 2019 (Lusa) – Macau Tourism Services have sought to convince the travel industry that the protests in Hong Kong are not affecting the territory, encouraging tourism packages that exclude the former British colony.
At a time when Hong Kong is marking four months of violent street protests, the Tourism Services of the former territory administered by Portugal have encouraged travel agencies in Southeast Asia to launch packages that include Macau and two, three or even four other Chinese cities in Guangdong province.
The strategy was outlined in a response to Lusa by the Directorate of Tourism Services (DST), on the same day that the number of entries into the territory during the "golden week" (holidays related to the establishment of the People's Republic of China) is known.
In the first seven days of October, Macau received 984,996 visitors, an increase of 11.5% over the same period last year, according to official data released today, which does not discriminate between the number of tourists or day trippers.
It is the latter - who arrive in Macau through a very popular package among Chinese agencies and in which Hong Kong is included - who the DST is concerned about.
In August, when protests in Hong Kong paralyzed one of the world's busiest airports for two days, group travel to Macau fell by 18.7%, according to the DST.
In the same month, the total number of visitors grew, but at a slower pace.
"The total number of visitors in August registered a year-on-year growth of 6.5%, which represents a significant decrease compared to the 16.3% growth recorded in July," stressed DST in its response to Lusa.
The protests in the former British colony are "the main reason" identified by the DST, which to reverse the figures has representatives abroad contacting different agencies ensuring that Macau "is in full operation".
The new packages, promoted by DST to Asian travel agencies, such as Malaysia and Thailand, include Macau and the nine cities in the Chinese province of Guangdong that are part of the Greater Bay project.
Some travel agencies in the Indian market have also strengthened the promotion of products to Macau, using cities in Southeast Asia that have direct flights to the territory as stopovers.
Hong Kong has been going through the worst political crisis for four months since the transfer of sovereignty from the United Kingdom to China, on July 1, 1997, with almost daily demonstrations to denounce the alleged erosion of freedoms, the growing influence of the Chinese government in the affairs of the semi-autonomous region and to demand democratic reforms.
The transfer of sovereignty from the former United Kingdom colony to China in 1997 took place under the principle of "one country, two systems".
As with Macau, a 50-year period was agreed for Hong Kong with a high degree of executive, legislative and judicial autonomy, with the Chinese central government responsible for external relations and defence.
