Published on .

Hong Kong--In an effort to encourage travel to Asia in the wake of the SARS epidemic, Global Sources Ltd., a company that publishes trade magazines and operates an e-marketplace for importers and exporters, announced Thursday an exclusive Hong Kong airfare discount for its community of more than 385,000 buyers. The offer is made in conjunction with Cathay Pacific Airlines.

“We are delighted to make this offer to help buyers get back to business face-to-face in Hong Kong and Guangdong as quickly as possible, and we are committed to restoring confidence and commercial activity in Hong Kong," said Merle Hinrichs, Global Sources’ chairman-CEO.

The program offers Global Sources' buyer community savings of up to 75% on airfares on 15 routes from selected cities around the world to Hong Kong, including New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
