The Chief Executive, Mr Chui Sai On, today continued his visits to hear complaints, views and suggestions on improving the quality of residents in the various districts. After visiting the older Northern district such as Iao Hon yesterday, Mr Chui today went to the older Ha Wan and San Kio districts, which often suffered from flooding in heavy rain. The Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, Mr Cheong U, Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Mr Lau Si Io and the Chief-of-Cabinet of the Office of the Chief Executive, Mr Tam Chon Weng accompanied Mr Chui on the visit. During the inspection, residents told the Chief Executive and his team of hygiene and flooding problems. Meanwhile, Mr Chui also talked to shop owners and asked them about business and human resource difficulties that they faced. The officials afterwards sat down with the representatives of the districts to hear their grievances and discussed possible solutions to their problems. Mr Chui said the Government highly valued residents’ opinion and pledged to study their suggestions carefully. Mr Cheong said he had a better idea in developing tourism after collecting concrete suggestions from the residents during the three-day local districts visit. He said the Government would divert more flow to the districts by them connecting to the normal visitors’ routes. The Government had also planned to increase health care centres and homes for the elderly, he added. Mr Lau said in the meeting that an inter-governmental group would look into beautifying the older districts to improve living conditions as well as to attract tourists to visit. On escalating property prices, Mr Lau said the Government’s long-term policy on housing was to build public rental housing and home-ownership scheme housing for those who could not afford to buy property on the open market. He stressed that the Government had sufficient land reserved for future public housing.
