冀 Maintain diversified development
When talking about the intensification of trade friction between China and the United States, Yao Zhiwei believes that the two countries will reach a trade agreement in the long run. Because Hong Kong has a small supply of land, and tomorrow’s plans such as Lantau will take time, the market demand will remain high in a short period of time. Steady development, the trade war will only cause short-term effects, and property prices are expected to rise by 5 to 10% this year. In the tourism industry, with the completion of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and high-speed rail infrastructure, the Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau Dawan District has formed a one-hour life circle, attracting many visitors to visit Hong Kong and have confidence in the development of the Hong Kong hotel industry.
He continued, the Group will continue to invest in the hotel business. Currently, there are 10 projects on hand, covering an area of 4.5 million square feet, half of which are residential, 30% are commercial buildings, and 20% are hotel projects, hoping to maintain diversified development
