Disposable skyscrapers - Hung Hom Peninsula; The West Kowloon Cultural Development; Civil Service Pay; "The Link" Real Estate Investment Trust, the development of Chinese Medicine. (03 Dec 2004)


In a brief round-up, there's controversy over plans to demolish never occupied flats on Hung Hom Peninsula; the government's still taking fire over the West Kowloon cultural hub project; the Court of Appeal rules this week that the decision to cut civil service pay is in breach of the Basic Law; and Fernando Cheung's plebiscite motion is voted down by the Legco Panel on Constitutional Affairs. The Link Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), is the biggest privatisation of public assets in Hong Kong's history. Under it, a publicly owned company will control and manage retail spaces in Hong Kong's Housing Estates. But many tenants are against it. And, legislators respond to Li Kwok-ying's motion on the development of Chinese Medicine with apparent apathy.
