Although Hong Kong’s Covid-19 policies have eased since the start of last year, the impact on tourism has been slow to recover. Although mandatory quarantine was dropped in September, and the border with mainland China reopened in January, tourists have not been flocking back in droves. But some optimists hope that a new campaign will encourage people to visit the city once again. It will also boost local employment and boost the economy in the long run.
