Macao’s economic recovery aided as “target goals” are accomplished in the city’s tourism master plan

The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has announced that 76 out of the 77 “phased plans” proposed in the Macao Tourism Industry Development Master Plan for 2021 were implemented. A total of 63 of those “phased plans”, the name given to project projected to take between zero and five years, accomplished their “target goals”, meaning that there was an overall 82% implementation rate.

Seven action in focus undertaken in 2021 were highlighted in the master plan: the effects of “tourism +”, Macao’s tourism products and facilities, quality tourism and collaboration, precision marketing, urban construction, smart technologies, and regional and international cooperation.

Many projects were launched in the city last year including an official MGTO flagship store on multinational online travel platform, the “Stay, Dine and See Macao” project, the “Macao Highlight Tours”, the “Macao Full of Fun - Smart Trip Planner”, the “Incubation Plan for Macao’s KOL in Tourism” and the “Short Videos about Macao” campaigns. Plus, Macao tourism and MICE presentation seminars, “Macao Week” and “Light Up Macao Drone Gala” were all successively organised.

In 2021, the Macao Grand Prix Museum reopened after a massive renovation, providing opportunities for the city’s cultural and creative professionals as they were able to create souvenirs for sale at the museum shop. Cultural, tourism and educational exchanges with the cities in the Greater Bay Area continued to be conducted as well. Virtual participation in international tourism organisation meetings in Macao also continued to maintain the city’s exposure and prestige in the area of international tourism. Last but not least, the city’s first monitoring report and work plan for the next four years were presented to the Secretariat of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.

In accordance with the master plan, the Macao SAR government and the city’s tourism industry are committed to providing tourists with a variety of diverse experiences and promoting the development of regional tourism so as to expand domestic demand and drive community consumption. This is all part of Macao’s ongoing drive to stimulate the recovery of the city’s tourism economy.
