On Friday's Backchat, Hong Kong Cities in the Bay Area. The Business and Professional Federation has produced a report recommending the establishment of cities and communities in the Bay Area that would serve Hong Kong citizens and act as satellite towns. With better transport links does this make sense? What about schools and hospitals? What are the legal problems and possibilities? The Government is extending availability of Old Age Allowance to pensioners on the Mainland, now taking in Fujian as well as Guangdong. Is there scope for more of this kind of integration, or Hong Kong retirement communities across the border? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, the British Government warnings on doing business here.
