HKTB to Launch a New Round of “Free Tours” with Extended Scope Covering the Hotel Sector

In addition to the tourism industry, the dining and retail sectors have been dealt a heavy blow by the fourth wave of the COVID-19 outbreak. Mr Dane Cheng, Executive Director of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), said, “As the first round of the ‘Free Tour’ programme was popular among the public, the HKTB will launch a new round of activities when the social-distancing measures gradually relax. In addition to tours, the HKTB is planning to include the hotel sector in the new round, which will follow the model of the first round of activities to encourage local spending and generate a chain of consumption.”
