HK's tourism capacity being reviewed


The Commissioner for Tourism, Philip Yung, says the government is currently reviewing Hong Kong's capacity to receive visitors.

He said the assessment includes the handling capacity at border control points and tourist attractions, as well as the supply of hotel rooms.

However, he said one should not jump to conclusions that the administration will scrap or change the "Individual Visit Scheme" which allows mainlanders to come to the territory without joining a tour group.

Speaking on a TV programme, Mr Yung also said he expected tourist growth to slow down in the coming year, but that most tourists will still be coming from China.
