Guangdong backs Hong Kong-Macau cooperation to promote cruise business

Guangdong backs Hong Kong-Macau cooperation to promote cruise business

China’s Guangdong provincial government has thrown its weight behind getting Hong Kong and Macau to cooperate more closely to promote the international cruise market in the region.

In the first quarter of this year, Guangdong province’s Pearl River Delta received more than 10,000 cruise tourists, an increase of 300% year-on-year. Occupying the low-lying areas of the Pearl River estuary, the Pearl River Delta connects to a handful of key cities including Hong Kong and Macau.

The Guangdong government has set itself a target to transform and upgrade the province’s tourism infrastructure, seek new areas for tourism investment, and promote tourism in rural areas, as well as develop the cruise tourism industry.
