The Tourism Commission works closely with the Hong Kong Tourism Board
(HKTB) (formerly known as Hong Kong Tourist Association) and other organisations to promote the development of tourism in Hong Kong.
The Tourism Commission is mainly responsible for formulating and co-ordinating implementation of policies, strategies and plans for tourism development. At the same time, it leads and coordinates the work of other Government bureaux and departments on policies and initiatives which have an impact on tourism development.
The primary responsibilities of the HKTB, a statutory body formed under the Hong Kong Tourism Board Ordinance, are to market and promote Hong Kong as a destination worldwide, and to take initiatives to enhance visitors' experience when they arrive. The HKTB regularly makes recommendations to the Government and other relevant bodies on the range and quality of visitor facilities.
