Harbourfront development experiences shared in seminar co-organised by Development Bureau and Barcelona (Date: 17/7/2012)

The Energizing Kowloon East Office (EKEO) of the Development Bureau and the city of Barcelona jointly held a seminar entitled "A Different Waterfront Makes a City Different - Barcelona Experience" at the EKEO at Hoi Bun Road, Kwun Tong, this evening (July 17). Over 200 distinguished local advocates of harbourfront planning, architects, construction professionals and urban planning experts joined the discussion to share their ideas on harbourfront planning and urban development at the seminar.

Led by the Mayor of Barcelona, Mr Xavier Trias, the Barcelona delegation visiting Hong Kong paid a courtesy call on the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mrs Carrie Lam, this morning. With more than 20 years of experience in harbourfront development, Barcelona serves as a successful example of harbourfront transformation, and can offer invaluable insight for the Energizing Kowloon East initiative and help Hong Kong further enhance the development of harbourfront areas.

The seminar today was chaired by the Permanent Secretary for Development (Works), Mr Wai Chi-sing. Other attendees included the Chairman of the Harbourfront Commission, Mr Nicholas Brooke; the Director of Architectural Services, Mr Leung Koon-kee; the Director of Civil Engineering and Development, Mr Hon Chi-keung; the Director of Drainage Services, Mr Chan Chi-chiu; the Acting Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services, Mr Alfred Sit; the Director of Highways, Mr Lau Ka-keung; the Director of Planning, Mr Jimmy Leung; and the Head of the Energizing Kowloon East Office, Mr Ling Kar-kan.
