Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Tuesday promised to find ways to deal with the increasing number of mainland tourists that may be putting pressure on certain districts and services in Hong Kong.
Speaking to reporters before heading to Beijing for the meeting of the National People's Congress, Leung said he and his administration cared very much about issues relating to Hong Kong's tourism and its capacity.
He said he when developing the tourism industry, the impact on residents also needed to be considered.
Leung did not say whether the issue would be discussed with mainland officials during his visit to Beijing. --RTHK
