文綺華:多方配合打造世旅

【本 報消息】澳門定位為世界旅遊休閒中心,如何更好向目標前進?旅遊局長文綺華表示,澳門作為旅遊城市,政府正不停管理好形象來吸引世界各地旅客,但過程相當 困難。澳門要打造世界旅遊休閒中心,需多方配合。政府可做的事情有限,需要業界間彼此溝通、攜手合作,更需多方不同意見來改善現況、做得更好。

澳門美國商會昨下午一時假美高梅宴會廳舉行午宴,邀請文綺華作主題演講,介紹澳門旅遊業狀況及《澳門旅遊業發展總體規劃》。

文綺華介紹澳門旅遊業狀況表示,一六年一至五月,訪澳旅客1,240萬人次,較去年同比跌0.8%,其中,內地旅客降1.5%、香港旅客降3.2%,但樂見台灣旅客升10.2%,國際旅客亦增6%。隨團入境旅客、總旅客消費、人均消費均有不同跌幅,澳門現時面臨挑戰眾多。

《澳門旅遊業發展總體規劃》在城市競爭力、旅遊資源及產品、訪澳客源市場及目標客群、旅遊品牌及城市定位、創新科技及智慧旅遊、旅遊品質及服務、區域旅遊合作、城市發展、城市交通及可達性,九個方面對旅遊業現況進行深入研究。截至七月一日共收549條意見。

規劃配合“世界旅遊休閒中心”定位,訂定三個指導原則,有旅遊休閒大業態、優質旅遊、文化旅遊。提出四大總體規劃目標,包括旅遊業可持續發展管理、發展多元化旅遊產品策略、開拓優質客源市場策略、提高旅遊質量,四大目標分別附有短、中、長的措施。

規劃亦對客源市場對訪澳期望、旅遊承載力、客源市場出境遊趨勢、過去旅遊業增長及國際旅遊組織對旅客量設有情境預測及評估機制。

Gov’t to spend MOP300 mln revamping Grand Prix Museum  -  Kam Leong | 13/07/2016 | in MACAU

The budget will primarily be used for renovation works, the director of the local tourism office said.

The government’s initial budget for revamping the city’s Grand Prix Museum is set at MOP300 million (US$37.5 million), with renovation works slated for completion by November 2018, the director of Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO), Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, said yesterday. “The estimated cost is primarily for the renovation works as it involves the whole building [of the Tourism Activities Centre] which we have not renovated for over 20 years. Hence, this is a head-to-toe revamping project,” the official said on the sidelines of a luncheon held by The American Chamber of Commerce in Macau yesterday.

In March, Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture Alexis Tam Chon Weng said the government was planning to transform the current Grand Prix Museum, located in the basement of the Tourism Activities Centre, into a Macau-themed one occupying the whole building. He expected that the revamp would take between two and three years.

The tourism office director said yesterday that the authorities are now aiming to make the renovated-museum ready for the 65th edition of the Macau Grand Prix, which will be held in November 2018. “The project is progressing. We are gradually opening tenders for some minor internal works such as for the air-conditioning systems inside the building . . . We expect we will invite bids for the overall revamping works at the beginning of next year,” Ms. Senna Fernandes said.

According to the official, the current Grand Prix Museum will be closed during the renovation next year and only re-opened when the project is completed.  After all, the museum has operated for over 20 years [thus] we believe many internal facilities need to be renovated . . . As the revamp involves the whole building we cannot guarantee good quality of services can be provided to visitors to the building. As such, we are planning to close the building for the renovation next year,” she explained.

Macau-Coloane sea route details announced by year-end  l  Shanghai Disneyland’s impact not apparent
Ms. Senna Fernandes also remarked upon the opening of Shanghai Disneyland, perceiving the impact of the new theme park in the Mainland on the local tourism industry as not yet apparent.  “I won’t say Shanghai Disneyland doesn’t impact Macau at all. But we need a more scientific study of its influences. But for now the impact is not big. We don’t see visitors not coming to Macau because they need to go to Shanghai Disneyland,” the official indicated, adding the soon-to-be-released data on tourist numbers in June could be a hint regarding the situation.  For the past few months we have seen changes in the travel patterns of both Mainland Chinese tourists and international visitors – those on package tours have been decreasing,” the MGTO director claimed, explaining that tourists were now more familiar with the Special Administrative Region.  Macau is becoming a more familiar destination to them. They might have needed a tour guide in the past but they can now come to the city themselves, especially with the development of the traffic network in the Mainland,” the tourism official told reporters.
