     The Tourism Commission convened a meeting today (April 3) to co-ordinate the preparation for the arrival of visitors to Hong Kong during the Labour Day Holiday. The meeting was hosted by the Commissioner for Tourism, Ms Vivian Sum, and was attended by representatives from government departments including the Customs and Excise Department, Hong Kong Police Force, Immigration Department, Transport Department and various District Offices, as well as various tourism-related organisations including the Travel Industry Authority (TIA), Hong Kong Tourism Board, Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong and West Kowloon Cultural District Authority. Relevant parties will keep close contact before the Labour Day Holiday to plan for different links of welcoming visitors' arrival to Hong Kong and take forward various preparation. 

     In addition, in view of the continued increase in the number of Mainland visitor arrivals to Hong Kong, the Commissioner for Tourism, together with the representatives of the TIA, conducted a site visit to the Kai Tak Runway Park Pier earlier to inspect the pier facilities established by the Tourism Commission before the pandemic for passengers to embark/disembark Victoria Harbour cruises. The Tourism Commission had co-ordinated its establishment before the pandemic. The Commissioner for Tourism also discussed with the TIA the arrangements for facilitating the trade to better utilise the concerned supporting facilities to disperse visitors participating in Victoria Harbour cruises.
