Linda Chen, executive director of casino operator Wynn Macau Ltd, has said she is confident the number of tourist arrivals to Macau will rise during the summer season.
Macau.- While Macau authorities consider easing restrictions for visitors as Covid-19 cases continue to decline in Guangdong, casino operators are looking ahead to the summer season.
Linda Chen, executive director of casino operator Wynn Macau Ltd, has said she believes the Covid-19 situation in the neighbouring province of Guangdong and in Hong Kong will gradually improve.
Alvis Lo lek Long, Macau Health Bureau director, has said that a travel bubble between Hong Kong and Macau could be contemplated once Hong Kong passes 28 days without a local Covid-19 case.
Once travel between Hong Kong and Macau is finally allowed, it is expected Macau will only allow vaccinated people to enter the city, showing a negative Covid-19 test.
Linda Chen said Macau authorities have been working hard to promote inbound tourism with different initiatives to be launched from July.
She predicted the visitor rate and hotel occupancy in summer will be similar to levels reached during the Labour Day break, when Macau’s Public Security Police have reported that 165,500 tourists came to the city.
Hong Kong as it provides 10 to 15 per cent of Macau’s annual casino gross gaming revenue (GGR), while has declined this month.
