The meeting was convened by Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Chairman of the General Assembly of Pacific Asia Travel Association Macau Chapter and Director of the Macau Government Tourism Office. She introduced the development of tourism industry in Macao from 2020 to May 2021. Recently, due to the impact of the epidemic in Guangdong and the requirement of a negative nucleic acid test result within 48 hours for immigrants, the number of visitors to Macao has reduced. She hoped that with the COVID-19 epidemic under control in Guangdong, the number of tourists visiting Macao increases and the tourism and hospitality industry in Macao gradually recovers.
