Reply To: Hong Kong suffers Chronic Air Pollution


Yesterday’s Sunday Morning Post had lead news item titled “Fund firms ‘driven out of polluted HK’ “

Mentioned that some funds have chosen to move headquarters to or set up in Singapore, in part because of worries over air pollution in Hong Kong, and its impacts on staff members’ children. Though no official comments, insiders at several of the companies said pollution had been a major factor.

Good quote from an unnamed senior manager:

You get to a point where you don’t want your children growing up with gas masks on.
