HONG KONG, Feb 23, 2018 - (Media OutReach) - Global Exchange, the multinational company specialised in providing currency exchange services at international airports and other major tourist locations, opened up its first-ever Asian offices in Hong Kong at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) at the Official Grand Opening Ceremony attended by officials at the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA).

The festive event was presided over by Isidoro J. Alanis, President and CEO of the Global Exchange Group, and Francisco Garcia Sevilla, Country Manager for the Hong Kong subsidiary, and was graced with the presence of representatives from AA and other major luminaries including Mr. Santiago Martinez-Caro, Consul General of Spain.

Isidoro Alanis said, "Hong Kong is a major passenger transport gateway into Asia and China, thus we are pleased to be in Hong Kong to become a part of this globally important airport. We are proud to open these new Global Exchange offices that combine the most innovative design with the highest quality standards in the world. The deployment of advance technology at our offices is aimed at offering multilingual communication that facilitates attentive services to international tourists travelling to or from Hong Kong International Airport."

Seven out of the ten offices covered under the foreign exchange concession awarded to Global Exchange last October are already offering round-the-clock services to Hong Kong International Airport passengers. The other three offices are to commence operation over the next few months, in March, September and November.

The arrival in Asia
The securing of the rights to open ten branches for a period of five years last October marks an important milestone for Global Exchange, the Spanish multinational company in its expansion strategy for the Asia-Pacific region.

Hong Kong International Airport is a strategically significant hub because it is the pre-eminent gateway into Asia and China, and the world's third busiest in terms of number of international passengers, with more than 72 million users, just behind Heathrow Airport in London and Dubai Airport in United Arab Emirates.
