Govt has no plan to put creative industry on mainland sites
(03-26 16:20)

The government says it has no plans to use land on the mainland to expand Hong Kong's creative industries.
During a Legco question and answer session, legislator Ma Fung-kwok, who represents the cultural sector, said the development of the industries has been severely constrained due to the tight land supply locally.
But the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Greg So Kam-leung, pointed out that Kowloon East was being transformed into a business district.
He said places, including the area under the Kwun Tong by-pass, could be allocated for cultural industries. But he added that there were no plans to offer subsidies to the industries so that they can operate in industrial buildings. --RTHK
