    LAND

    The development of land is relevant not only to the issue of housing, but also to medical care, the economy, population size, aging population etc. Hong Kong is currently confronted with a severe shortage of land, resulting in higher costs of living, medical care, and even running a business. This has caused a major setback to Hong Kong’s urban development and international competitiveness, leading to a chain of socioeconomic problems.

    Therefore, Our Hong Kong Foundation focuses our land research on the socioeconomic impacts of a shortage of land supply, the reasons behind the shortage, and the feasibility of different approaches to increasing land supply. We also conduct in-depth studies on the situation regarding housing supply, the structure of Hong Kong’s land and housing market, development in Lantau Island, the effectiveness of approval and developmental processes, etc. We hope that our research can help society reach a consensus and support a multi-pronged approach to increase land supply.
