25 Oct 2023 - Catch on the evolving tourism dynamics of the Greater Bay Area (GBA) through a review of its vast transportation network. As we witness the transformative integration of Macau and Hong Kong with nine municipalities in China, it is essential to understand the travel industry's immense potential for growth but also the complex challenges, the need for major investments, and the organizational structure requirements to build efficient and economical transit solutions to support this ever-expanding hotspot called the GBA. 
Join us on another episode of On the Record presented by the FMCC GBA Tourism & Leisure Committee, and hear from a panel of industry experts as they elucidate the intricate relationship between transportation and the GBA's continued success.

July 26, 2022 -   On June 18, 2022, the first local omicron cases were detected, the effect was preventive measures by ordering businesses to shut down and the population to stay at home plus daily covid-test. The impact on businesses is apparent, with zero tourist and economic spending. This might be the most challenging time for the Macau tourism industry after almost three years of pandemic disruptions. As Macau slowly emerges from this most recent period it is essential to learn from others jurisdictions and what they experienced as tourists returned. Join us and hear from Mr. Andrew Klebanow (Co-founder & Senior Partner of C3 Gaming) about Las Vegas' tourism recovery, and Ms. Celia Lao (General Manager of Greater China, AirAsia Digital) about her company's business transformation and perspectives on GBA and regional markets.

Greater Bay Area (GBA) is at the center stage of the country’s development. One of the core pillars of Macau's economic advancement is Tourism & Leisure sector. This white paper FMCC GBA Tourism & Leisure Committee co-authored titled "Driving Force in GBA Tourism & Leisure" was first published through Macau Business Magazine (May edition) and Macau News Agency.
