Wednesday, September 12, 2018

The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce believes that land reclamation, brownfield redevelopment, agricultural land development and industrial sites re-zoning are priorities for the next policy address.

"The chamber stands ready to support the government in the drafting of an implementation plan, with action points and time frames, and to do what is possible to expand the availability of land to achieve our shared vision for a prosperous and harmonious Hong Kong," the chamber said in a statement.

It also favors the creation of a special labor imports scheme for elderly care, health care, construction, technology, retail and other industries suffering from acute labor shortages.
