According to figures released by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), 434,648 Indian tourists visited the country last year. These figures were achieved through an increase of short-haul arrivals by 3.4% and overnight arrivals by 5.8%.

Anthony Lau, executive director of HKTB said, “In recent years, HKTB has increased investments to develop new markets in order to broaden our visitor base and to maintain a balanced visitor portfolio. We will continue to enhance our promotions in new markets in 2014, including India, to maintain our powerful growth momentum. These efforts lay the foundations for long-term growth, and will keep a close watch on emerging markets with potential for the Hong Kong tourism industry.”

The tourism board targets cities of Mumbai and New Delhi, though resources will also be deployed in cities such as Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata and Hyderabad. The board plans to promote multi-destination itineraries with Macau and Shenzhen, and partner with cruise lines to promote cruise travel that includes stopovers in Hong Kong.
