60-hectare Disney site may be used for recreation, entertainmentLocal | 13 Jun 2018 4:11 pm
A 60-hectare site earmarked for Hong Kong Disneyland's expansion in stage two and which has not yet been purchased by Hongkong International Theme Parks, could be considered for recreation, entertainment, and tourism on a short-term basis, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Edward Yau said today.
He said the site was used for hosting some short-term activities in the past, such as sports activities and group events.
"Recently, we have also received some proposals, and are exploring and discussing with the relevant parties,'' Yau said.
Yau was responding to a question by lawmaker Tony Tse related to the site, which he said was given to Hongkong International Theme Parks. The jointe-venture company was given an option with a validity period of 20 years to buy the site, he said, adding that it had all along been left vacant since 1999.
