Economic warning on fewer visitors
(06-05 19:06)

The Secretary for Economic Development, Greg So, has urged people to consider what economic price they are willing to pay for reducing the number of mainland visitors to Hong Kong.
This follows protests by some activists who are angered by cultural and social impacts of the recent influx of mainland shoppers.
So said the government has reached no conclusion on the way forward and is still considering the views of the public. --RTHK
