" We foresee a Lantau district with more mid-priced hotels and shopping malls, to cope with the demand of overflowing visitors from mainland" ,said Chairman of Lantau Development Alliance.

Districts like Mongkok, Causeway Bay and nowadays even Sha Tin are overflowing with visitors from mainland. Social discontent is critical towards serious inflation on domestic goods, which is considered a result brought by the visitors' enormous demand and purchases.


Allen Ha, Chairman of Lantau Development Alliance said that, in long term government planned to develop the North of Lantau District into a tourist zone with mid-priced shopping malls and hotels to meet the demand of tourists, mainly from mainland.


Ha said that the critical inflation in domestic products shows that Hong Kong is short of supply to meet the demand of tourists. He said if the problem is left unsolved, Hong Kong will be losing a great deal of business opportunities from tourism, while many will lose job opportunities in the field of tourism and catering.


Ha sees the shortage of land to build enough infrastructures as the biggest reason towards the problem. He said that unlike other districts in Hong Kong, the North Lantau District has sufficient supply of undeveloped land that could be used for building malls and hotels to provide mid-priced services for tourists.


Ha believes that the Lantau District is capable in meeting both the demands of tourists and locals, saying there is no need to worry that the building of more shopping malls, will cause another shopping rush of mid-priced domestic products in the district , like it was in the Sheung Shui District.
