HKTB announced that this year's National Day Golden Week had 15.8% more mainland visitors than last year. Travel visas to Hong Kong reached more than 407,000. In addition, the use of Shenzhen One Visa Multi-use had a 20% share, giving about 9,500 people to register each day. HKTB Chairman James Tien said the increases where due to economic environment improvements, and mainland tourists had no significant affect by the economy. Also with a longer Golden Week, the industry introduced more promotional offers.
