Achieving sustainable and
user friendly environment, greening and landscaping provision, river
regeneration, or the providing of a pleasant cityscape for general public, are
some basic context or facilities for modern cities to be provided by concerning
governing authorities nowadays.
In the past few decades,
cities in particular for those relatively less-developed one in Asian countries
including Hong Kong, were not performing satisfactorily in achieving these
targets. However, as the uplifting of general living standard and the getting
better-off economically in many nearby regions especially after the millennium,
situation is getting much improved.
Being engaged in China development
studies for more than 20 years, the speaker wishes to share his experience and
summarize some observations of his own focusing on this issue. Case
illustration based on Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and some other
second-line cities of China will be used in this seminar presentation for discussion.
Cantonese will be the
medium of language, to be supplemented with English when needed.
