According to the American Express / GBTA Business Traveler Sentiment Index™, Hong Kong-based companies are among the highest users of electronic receipts in the world; 28 percent of respondents said they submit receipts electronically the majority of the time, compared to a global average of 22 percent. In addition, 41 percent of respondents said they would opt for a corporate card if given the choice, with the most commonly cited reason being the ability to track expenses (24 percent).
 
The survey also showed that only 42 percent of Hong Kong respondents felt that their company cares about their well-being, versus 66 percent globally. Over half (54 percent) of respondents neither agreed nor disagreed, showing that demonstrations of care by employers are recognised by staff.
 
American Express pledges to continue evolving products and services, to cater the needs of Card Members and make their time on the road more productive and satisfying,” said Stephen Pendergast, Vice President & General Manager, Global Corporate Payments, Hong Kong & Taiwan at American Express International, Inc. “When the world is your office, increasing efficiency and getting the best return on your business travel spend is even more important – as is rewarding the employees who are partners in your success. The American Express Cathay Pacific Corporate Card programme is our proud demonstration to offer dual benefits to both Card Members and their companies.”
 
Cathay Pacific’s Director Sales and Marketing Dane Cheng said, “As part of our ‘Life Well Travelled’ philosophy, Cathay Pacific continues to strive to enhance the overall travel experience of our passengers. American Express and Cathay Pacific have long been leaders in our respective industries and together we have worked hard to provide the most attractive credit card to corporate travellers. With the increased range of services and benefits now available, the American Express Cathay Pacific Corporate Card programme has become even more rewarding to Card Members and their companies alike.
  
This partnership with Cathay Pacific is in line with our company’s long term vision to become the world’s most respected service brand, and reward our customers both in their personal lives and through their business travel experiences,” echoed Pendergast.
