Consider getting businesses involved in Hong Kong waterfront, development minister Michael Wong says

Working with the private sector to revitalise Hong Kong’s prized waterfront is worth considering, the city’s development chief said on Thursday, insisting the government need not fear accusations of collusion.
Secretary for Development Michael Wong Wai-lun made the remarks after the government last month pledged to give HK$6 billion towards extending and enhancing promenades on both sides of Victoria Harbour. The work – intended to make the waterfront interconnected – involves nine projects to be carried out over the next decade.
Wong said the government was open to collaborating with the private sector on the nine projects, which would extend the harbourfront by a total of 13km.
“With these projects, we should try to be as innovative and creative as possible,” Wong said at a meeting with the Harbourfront Commission, a watchdog supported by the Development Bureau.
