Hong Kong Ocean Park's financial year 2018-2019 results show that Ocean Park has lost money for four consecutive years. Affected by fewer visitors to Hong Kong in the second half of 2019, Hong Kong Ocean Park last week announced staff \"frozen pay\" to control costs.


Local media reported on Friday that Hong Kong Ocean Park had implemented a number of cost-control measures, including \"frozen pay\" and incentives for employees to apply for unpaid leave or retire early, without affecting their day-to-day operations, including animal care, service and performing arts, and visitor safety, but would avoid layoffs as much as possible.


Hong Kong's Ocean Park said it had seen more than 60 percent year-on-year declines in inbound tour groups and free travel from July to December 2019, influenced by fewer visitors in the second half of 2019 and a recession. Ocean Park expects Hong Kong's overall tourism situation to be difficult to rebound in the short term. In addition, to encourage staff to spend time with the park in difficult times, Ocean Park will distribute 600 yuan and 300 yuan in red envelopes to full-time and part-time workers in the spring new year, down by half from last year.


Ocean park has been one of hong kong's most popular attractions. It opened in january 1977 and was donated by the hong kong Jockey Club.


In December 2019, Hong Kong Ocean Park released its financial year 2018 to 2019 performance report as at 30 June 2019. The report showed that the park recorded a net loss of HK $100 million (HK $500 million) in the financial year, its fourth consecutive year of losses.


The chairman of Hong Kong Ocean Park, Mr Kong, said the cost of the operation of the park had increased as a result of the damage caused by the super typhoon, and other factors that led to a significant increase in maintenance costs, as well as various expenses involved in the depreciation of new infrastructure and new facilities.


The Hong Kong Ocean Park is facing intense competition for the increased number of theme parks in the region and an increasingly harsh market environment, the results said. The annual admission of Hong Kong Ocean Park from 2018 to 2019 is 5.7 million, and the number remains stable. However, the continued decrease in global tour arrivals has offset the growth in both local and free travelers.


In December 2019, the number of tour groups visiting Hong Kong on a daily basis fell by 90 per cent, while Hong Kong Tourism Board data showed that there were about 2.6 million visitors in November 2019, a 56 per cent decrease.


Lee han-cheng, executive director of the association of hong kong hotel owners, said in a media report that in the current situation of the hotel industry in hong kong, the hotel mainly through staff leave, pay-free leave and reduce part-time staff to cut expenditure.


On the other hand, Hong Kong theme parks also face fierce competition for the same type of scenic spots. The 2017 global theme park survey by the world theme park authoritative research institute, the American theme entertainment association (TEA), and the third party tourism industry research and consulting agency AECOM group USA, showed that Zhuhai Hengqin Changlongguo received 10,000 visitors in 2017, ranking 11th in the world theme park.


Among the Chinese theme parks on the list were Shanghai Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland and Hong Kong Ocean Park, which were 8th,18th and 20th respectively.


Local hotels and travel companies are also affected by the unanticipated tourism industry in Hong Kong. Hyatt Group's third-quarter earnings report showed its revenues in Hong Kong fell 36 per cent in the third quarter of 2019 and more than 50 per cent in October. Previously, according to the hotel's property rights network, the hotel's occupancy rate in hong kong has fallen by 20 percentage points since july.


In November 2019, Disney of the United States reported earnings for the fourth quarter of the 2019 fiscal year (July-September 2019), in which Hong Kong Disneyland's revenue fell nearly $55 million in the quarter from last year, and Disney expects it to fall about $80 million year-on-year in the next quarter, which, if the trend continues, would result in Disney's full-year revenue of about $100 million. However, the decline was offset by growth in performance at Disneyland in Paris and Shanghai, according to the earnings report.
