Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- BMI's tourism report looks at a range of market indicators in this very well-established tourism industry, including inbound and outbound travel, tourism-related expenditure, hotel developments and overall industry rate.

The government is highly supportive of the tourism industry, and recent marketing programmes targeting India, the Netherlands, Russia and Vietnam saw arrivals from these countries increase by 8%.

This gives Hong Kong one of the highest rates of departure per population in the world. As with inbound travel, the Asia Pacific region dominates outbound travel, with Macau consistently proving the most popular destination, followed by Taiwan and Japan.
Hong Kong International Airport is one of the world's busiest, handling just under 60mn passengers in 2014, with capacity for 64...
