Storyline


Tourism workers in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) staged a protest on Tuesday by driving buses slowly, calling on social stability and economic recovery.

Over 60 tour buses gathered at Shing Kai Road in Kowloon on Tuesday morning and the protest began at around 10:30.

The tourism industry in Hong Kong is experiencing a chilly winter with sluggish business, as the city is losing inland tourist arrivals due to weeks of violence.

"My drivers have gained nothing for three consecutive months," said Chou Chih-hsiung, a bus operator.

"I hope things could be quenched as soon as possible so as to restore peace in Hong Kong. Then our tourism industry could resume business operation as soon as possible. We should promote Hong Kong and recover it as before, so that people would feel that Hong Kong is the safest city and the best destination of tourism," said Wen Kuan-ch'eng, a tourism worker.

According to the data released by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, inbound tourists to Hong Kong dropped by about 40 percent in August year on year. Recently, Hong Kong's tour bus drivers, tour guides and other tourism workers have earned less and even experienced laid-offs.Hong Kong tourism practitioners are eager to see the society returns to peace as soon as possible.

"This industry is indeed hit heavily. All of us. Even mine is a medium-sized travel agency, it still has few tour groups to handle," said Chuang Hui, a tourism worker.

"The most important thing is that this is not our will. We don't like these riots to destroy the society. We hope the things are quenched as soon as possible, and then we will do some work to rekindle tourists' confidence to come to Hong Kong," said Dicky Yip, chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Practitioners' Union.

Now "ending the chaos and restoring order" has become the broadest consensus and strongest desire of all walks of life in Hong Kong. Timothy Chui Ting-pong, executive director of the Hong Kong Tourism Association, pointed out that as long as the social order could be restored, Hong Kong still could see a long-term development in tourism.

"We have confidence in our tourism industry. We hope that through the adjustment this time, our Hong Kong's tourism industry could work more for the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area," he said.
