Wong, Emma, Bauer, Thomas G and Wong, Kwong Keung (2008) A critical comparison of tourism policies of Hong Kong and Singapore - An avenue to mutual learning. International Journal of Tourism Research, 10 (3). pp. 193-206. ISSN 1099-2340


This study examines how mutual learning can potentially enhance the destination competitiveness and sustainability of Hong Kong and Singapore. By comparing the recent tourism policies of the two city states, and by interviewing key government officials, major industrial players, academic experts and representatives of international tourism organisations, it was found that both governments can learn from each other in various aspects. The Hong Kong government can learn from its Singapore counterpart the recognition and proactive support it provides to the industry, its visionary leadership, and its eagerness to learn. At the same time, the Singapore government can learn from Hong Kong in promoting entrepreneurship within the tourism industry
