Solving Hong Kong’s land supply problem

Practically all of Hong Kong agrees: Our land supply shortage is a major problem. Fixing the issue is a top priority for all, but the “how” is where stakeholders continue to debate.

Mon 26 Mar 2018
06:30 PM - 08:00 PM
23/F, Euro Trade Centre, 21-23 Des Voeux Road Central, Central District, Hong Kong
1.5 hours CPD


Join us as we facilitate a discussion to solve this challenge with research findings from Our Hong Kong Foundation (OHKF), views from a Task Force on Land Supply representative and more.

Our guest speakers from OHKF, a leading Hong Kong think tank, will speak about their recently launched Policy Research Series: Land and Housing III. We will also host a panel discussion with the goal of arriving at meaningful conclusions that will guide Hong Kong towards a better path forward.

Discussion points

  • Economic feasibility of Hong Kong's public housing system.
  • The pace of land development.
  • Land supply trends and potential solutions.
  • Urban planning issues.
