(Your lead is good and terse. It would be better to say northern Lantau Island than north of Lantau Island. But like most other students,you have failed to give us a comprehensive geographical information about the Lantau Island. For example, what is the total area or the size of the island as compared to the Hong Kong Island and how far is it from the HK Island? You should have a mental map in your head and explain it by putting it in words to help your readers to understand the situation. For example, Lantau Island is 85% larger than Hong Kong Island and is situated at the south west of the territory where the future Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge might bring in huge numbers of tourists. Without these information, readers might not grasp fully what you mean by a good development plan for the Lantau Island or how the development could solve the job mismatch issue in the Tung Chung area.)

Allen Ha: Tung Chung needs development to solve the worsening poverty problem

Allen Ha, as the Chairman of the Lantau Development Alliance said that nowadays the problems faced by Tung Chung are the poverty and mismatch of jobs which can be tackled by development of the north of Lantau Island.


Poverty problem in Tung Chung

According to The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS), Tung Chung’s poverty percentage has reached the alarming level and surpassed traditional poor districts like Shum Shui Po.


Development helps

Ha believed that once Tung Chung develops into a three-four-star district which will provide enough jobs and infrastructure for the locals, the problems will be solved. Ha also added that the development in Tung Chung will mainly target customers of middle level consuming power. The plan will include three-to-four star hotels, some outlets of famous brands in order to make tourists stay and shop. He claimed that once the development starts, the the mismatch of jobs and commuting problems will also be handled.


Reduces burden of main spots

And Ha said that all these new infrastructures will help divert the tourists to Tung Chung for an economical way of travel. And this kind of distribution of tourists will also help relieve the burden of main spots like Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai.


When Ha was asked about whether Tung Chung will become another Sheung Shui (which is recognized as the supermarket and garden for mainlanders not Hong Kong people), he just said he will learn from mistake. And he didn’t promise the provision of commodities will be enough for locals, he said he will leave the problems to the market to decide.
