Our ITRC research team member, Mr. Patrick Lo, represented IFT to discuss about enhancing the Free Individual Travellers (FIT) Policy together with the other panelistes at the Macau Forum, program of the TDM on Sunday, 22 March 2016.
The panelists suggested increasing the proportions of the long-haul and the high-spending visitors could help driving the development of the hotel, the MICE and the tourism industries.
Mr. Patrick Lo believed that we should understand the goal of enhancing the FIT Policy. If we'd like to increase the visitor's purchasing power, adjusting the frequency of issuing visa in some reagions and issuing more business-visa can be considered.
