A Shifting Growth in the Tourism Industry

(Macau Business Daily) GTEF vice chairman Pansy Ho advocates the constant creation of new experiences for tourists as an approach for reinvestment in the city’s tourism industry “I believe the next decade of growth for Macau [will require ]opening up possibilities [for foreign visitors who are interested in the art and culture of Macau] and to cater to another sector or segment of the traveling and tourism community,” stated the Vice Chairman and Secretary-General of the Global Tourism Economy Forum (GTEF), Pansy Ho Chiu King, to the press after the opening ceremony of GTEF 2017 yesterday. Ms. Ho said that it is important for the city to create new content, otherwise “people will come [to the city] once and go elsewhere [next time]”. “We need to re-invent ourselves,” said Ms. Ho. “Every time [tourists] come back, we want to create [the conditions] so they will think that Macau is the place that always has the next new experiences.” To read the full article, please click here.
