The impact of the over two month-long protest in Hong Kong has been felt deeply by the city’s businesses. The honorary President of the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong said catering and tourism industries have been particularly affected.

The Hong Kong Federation of Restaurants and Related Trades also announced on Wednesday (TAKE GRAPHICS) that business turnover in the major occupy sites has fallen by 3 billion Hong Kong dollars since the protests began... an average of 50 million Hong Kong dollars per day. The tourism industry has also suffered. The Hong Kong Tourism Board reported a five percent drop in arrivals from the neighboring regions.
