Macau, Monday, September 1, 2020 – Melco Resorts & Entertainment fully supports the Macau SAR government’s newly launched scheme for tourists from Mainland China with the aim to expand clientele, boost the economy and protect local jobs. In support of the scheme, Melco strives to continue prioritizing epidemic prevention measures as it welcomes guests by working hand in hand with local small and medium enterprise (SME) partners for the city’s sustainable development and to contribute collaboratively to the economy's recovery.
Initiated by the Macau SAR Government and with support from e-commerce giants Tencent and Alibaba, as well as Air Macau, the scheme aims to attract tourism to the city through promotions on air tickets, hotels, and rebates on shopping and dining to encourage increased tourist spend and length of stay. Visitors may follow the Macau government’s social media accounts – with winners being entitled to discounts of up to RMB 500 on hotel stays and e-goodie bags for redemption upon spending.
