The Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO)
recently opened a representative office in Russia.
With a mutual
visa-free policy in force between Macau and Russia since October
2012, along with continuing increase of visitors from the country
to Macau, as well as to Hong Kong, MGTO opened the office in
Russia to help boost interest, and the number of visitor arrivals
to the city.
Russia is one of the most sought-after markets
in the world in terms of its tourism potential, and is the fastest
growing emerging market for Macau. Visitor arrivals from Russia
have been increasing annually since 2004. Last year Macau welcomed
26,844 Russian visitors, marking a year-on-year growth of 62.6%.
"We are very excited to open a representative
office in Moscow following a few years conducting seasonal
promotions to test the market. Russia is one of the most
sought-after markets in the world in terms of tourism potential
and for Macau the Russian market is the fastest growing emerging
market," said MGTO Director, Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes.
The MGTO representative office, which is open
Monday to Friday from 10 am to 7 pm, is located at: 11 Bolshaya Tulskaya Street, Business Center "Tulskij",115191 Moscow,
