Auditor urges HA to meet housing target
(04-16 16:46)

The Auditor on Wednesday called on the Housing Authority to do more to meet the government's target of providing 200,000 new public rental flats by 2022.
According to a report compiled by the watchdog, only 179,000 units are expected to be finished by then due to a shortage of land supply and the inefficient redevelopment of sites that have been returned to the government.
The Director of Audit said the Housing Authority should liaise with the relevant bureaus and departments to secure the land it needed, and closely monitor rental housing projects to ensure they were completed in time. --RTHK
