“After more than a decade of impressive visitor and expenditure growth driven by its multi-faceted casino resorts, Macau is promoting itself as a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure, and is focusing on new family attractions and business-convention facilities to attract a broader visitor mix and increase the average length of stay.”
