The chairman of Lantau Development Alliance attended an assembly at Hong Kong Shue Yan University saying the government could consider Lantau Island to develop MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) tourism industry.


Allen Ha pointed out that types of industries in Hong Kong were limited. He told that Lantau provided a variety of job opportunities but most of the workers were not local residents. “People living on the island mostly work in other districts. This is time-consuming, costly and not environmentally-friendly at all,” said Ha. He suggested the government to provide on-job trainings on the island in order to change the current situation and reduce the number of job mismatch.


Ha added that the government should have a concrete plan before development as well as cater for the need of local residents and tourists. However, Citygate, located in Tung Chung, seemed to serve tourists from Mainland China only but not Hong Kong citizens. “Catering for local needs” was in doubt. Ha defended that target customers of Citygate were tourists so he was not worried about living of local residents would be affected.


Ha said there was only one main business center in Hong Kong concentrated in both sides of Victoria Harbour. He suggested that the government should consider features and positioning of the island while developing it. Lantau Island should be positioned at middle price level instead of building up five or six stars shopping malls. He hoped the government could equip the island with more facilities, for example, hotels and retails, in order to divert tourists from city to island. Resources on the island could therefore be used efficiently. The island could develop creative industry in long term.
