About $1.26b of budget earmarked for tourism support

This follows the $3.8b earlier investment to make HK a tourism destination.

Hong Kong’s tourism sector is facing an upgrade as $1.26b of the country’s budget was announced to be reserved for the development of this sector. 

According to Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau, this was the next step after an estimated $3.8b  was invested into enhancing Hong Kong’s attractiveness as a tourism destination.

Initiatives covered by the budget include the implementation of measures such as the Cultural and Heritage Sites Local Tour Incentive Scheme, sponsoring the training of practitioners and the Tourism Board’s efforts to revive the sector.

“Hong Kong remains a very attractive place for tourism. But of course, for the entire world, I think COVID-19 has put up a major barrier, so we are taking this opportunity of this lull period to upgrade the trade as a whole, to maintain Hong Kong's image, and also to equip every frontline practitioner to prepare for the return of tourism,” commented Yau.
