At Hilton Hotels and Resorts, we have an active initiative focused on sharing our story with travelers in China. Hilton will continue to position itself as the world's largest hotel operator with its global portfolio of hotels and resorts. Conrad Macao Cotai Strip joins our existing Conrad hotels in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Guangdong, and Hilton continues to deepen relationships with established partners such as Hilton Hotel Group, Marriott International, Hilton Worldwide and Hampton International to develop Hampton as a Hilton hotel and to comprehensively enhance the Hilton brand and its brand name in Asia Pacific.
At Hilton Huanying, for example, we have invited many tour operators to participate in our "Hilton China Tour" program, the first of its kind in the world.
The InterContinental Hong Kong opened in 1980 and has since become a major attraction for those who have stayed in various luxury hotels in the US and other parts of the world in recent years. Even if you have no idea what a five-star hotel is, the service and standard that they have experienced sends a strong message about the quality of service, amenities and amenities at Hilton hotels.
Chinese companies eventually became owners of the InterContinental Hong Kong (see above), and much of it is now in Blackstone's hands, including the hotel's real estate holdings and a number of other real estate in China.
Hilton Huanying is the key to this program, providing familiar services and amenities to Chinese guests traveling from Beijing, London and San Francisco. The two hotels, which opened in Guangzhou in August, also opened the first eforea spa for Hilton in China in January 2012, and offer everything a business traveler needs. Hilton is considered an important guide to its strategic development, having established its first international business-to-business hotel in Chengdu, China, in 2009. The HiltonHuanyin is a testament to the convenience and service standards of Hilton Hotels for Chinese travelers, meeting their unique needs and expectations when traveling abroad.
China's international standing has been threatened recently by the ongoing turmoil in Hong Kong, and, as Beijing enforces a national security law, it will not stop there. The law was passed in March 2012, bypassing the Hong Kong legislature entirely. Indeed, it would become a "special administrative region" in mainland China, where foreign investment, business travel, and even travel to other parts of the world are banned. Never in the history of Chinese foreign policy has there been a more dangerous situation than the current one.
Hilton Worldwide will expand its presence in China to over 100 hotels over the next five years, and Hilton Worldwide has 200 hotels operating in the Chinese market. Under the Hilton China brand, Hilton will offer a diverse portfolio of brands under the HGI umbrella to better meet the differentiated travel needs of Chinese consumers, including hotels in Guangdong, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, Hengqin, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing. Hilton has implemented this in its first hotel in China, drawing on the experience of benchmark cities like Guang Dao and Shenyang, as well as benchmarks like GuangDong and Zhuohai and HENGQin, and introducing H GI Zhuanghua and Zhejiang Zhongshan, two of China's most popular hotel brands.
With China's tourism market set to be three times Japan's by 2020, hotel companies like Hilton must tailor their services to Chinese travelers. Since Chinese travellers visiting China from abroad are travelling to other regions of the country beyond Beijing and Shanghai, and the hotel portfolio is also being expanded. China's economy and warned that if the hotel had to close, it would have had an impact on the Chinese economy.
