The industry is relatively labor intensive and thus is an important driver for generating jobs. Between 2000 and 2009, 28.4% of the new jobs created were in the tourism sector.

Hong Kongs Disneyland

Disney initiated a conversation with the HKSAR government in Aug 1998

Initially planned to simply run the park on a management fee and Licensing contract basis

Created 18,400 jobs and was expected to increase 35,800 in 20 yrs

3.4 million visitors attracted to the park

Over a period of 40 years, it was forecast that HKD would generate an economic benefit equivalent to KH $ 148 billion

The Concluded Deal

After a year of negotiation the final contract was signed in December of 1999

Hong Kong International Theme Park Limited(HKITP) , The joint venture formed between Disney and the Hong Kong government in Dec 1999

While Government developed the infrastructure, Disney provided master planning, real estate development, production development.

Disney also set up a wholly owned subsidiary, Hong Kong Disneyland Management Limited, to manage HKD on behalf of HKITP

This is a happy marriage between a world-class tourism attraction and a world class tourist destination. We hope that Hong Kong Disneyland will not just bring us more tourists, but also wholesome quality entertainment for local families as well. Stephen IP, Hong Kong Secretary for Economic services

A Rocky Start

4 weeks prior to the official opening, HKD invited 30,000 selected individuals per day to visit the park to test the rides and other attractions.

The firs problem noticed was that capacity limit of 30,000 visitors may have been to high.

The park faced another problem when inspectors from the Hygiene department were asked to remove their badges and caps .
