Macau.- Tourism groups from Taiwan have visited Macau to explore how to incentivise tourism between the destinations. The meeting was part of a five-day tour that involved the Travel Industry Council of Macau.

Taiwanese delegates were shown offerings in Macau and Hengqin to learn what they can offer potential tourists. According to Macau Business, representatives of 58 Taiwanese travel agencies were among the delegates who met with representatives of hotels, travel agencies and integrated resorts in Macau to explore business opportunities.
