Reply To: Eco-tourism stifled in Hong Kong


    Not having the intimate experience that I’ve had in the last 3 months with eco-tourism in Hong Kong, I think I’m hearing more “lip service” paid by government officials about “sustainable development” and eco-tourism or community-based tourism.

    Selina Chow, in her role as Chairman of the Tourism Board, stated on an ATV show on eco-tourism a few months ago, that she would work with grassroots groups promoting eco-tourism and community-based tourism.

    Getting substantive action though as a result of said promises has not been swift or sure. Some action but without concrete results to show for it, does it count as substantive?
