transform into a major international trading, financial and
shipping center,” said Gary Rosen, Accor Greater China’s Chairman
and Chief Operating Officer. “With Fairmont properties already in
some of the world’s most famous destinations, the Fairmont Sanya
Haitang Bay will notably become a focal point of the Island and
