Tourism numbers fall during June 2015 in Hong Kong

Published on : Monday, July 6, 2015

Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition CentreSecretary for Commerce & Economic Development Gregory So said while tourism numbers had fallen in the month of June, it will take a year to see the full impact of the new one-trip-per-week policy for Shenzhen visitors to Hong Kong.

Speaking to reporters after the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival, Mr So noted that the number of tourists coming under the Individual Visit Scheme had recorded a 5% year-on-year decrease of 5% in May, and a 10% fall from June 1 to 28.

Mr So said it was premature to see what the overall impact the one-trip-per-week policy would have as it has only been implemented for about three months.

In another development, he said the Communications Authority had not received any application for shareholding changes from broadcaster ATV.
