Macau visitors’ expenditure between July and September 2016 increased by 17.4%.
The first time in 15 consecutive months that expenditure has increased.
The 8.1 million visitors, mainly from mainland China spent US$ 1.83 billion in Macau in the 3rd quarter.
This increase was attributed to a surge in spending by overnight visitors.
More money has also been spent on hotels, shopping and food.
