Representatives of the business sector are divided on its usefulness. Andrew Leung of the Liberal Party and Audrey Eu of the Civic Party give their views. There is a challenge hindering China's econnomic growth - a massive lack of accountants. 300,000 are needed. China has 130,000.

It's also a legacy of China's turbulent political history. The Future of Lower Albert Road. Now that the relocation of the Central Government Offices to Tamar has been approved, attention has turned to what is going to happen to the present office structures, situated in one of Central's few green areas.
