(01-27 17:47)

Legislators have raised further concerns about Hong Kong's capacity to deal with increasing numbers of tourists.
A government report has forecast visitor numbers to increase to 70 million in 2017, and 100 million in 2023, RTHK reports.
Legislators were told that plans to cope with the influx include increasing hotel capacity, expansion of existing attractions -- such as the city's two theme parks -- and new developments.
