From email from Esta Overmars:
Last Monday there was the Clear the Air Charter Forum organised by the General Chamber of Commerce. Out of tens of thousands of business organisations in Hong Kong, only 500 signed.
There also has been a lot of criticism on Donald Tsang and his remarks on how healthy it must be to live in Hong Kong. We all know (esp. those with sea view) that this year was one of the worst years, with hazy days most of the year.
Everybody blames the Pearl River Delta, but we have to realise that 70,000 factories in that area are Hong Kong-owned, not to mention the power plants in the hands of big companies such as Cheung Kong, New World Holdings and Hopewell Holdings (source: http://www.cleartheair.org.hk)!!! What is the business sector doing to ‘go green’ and if not, what can they do?
We hope our guests can shed some light on a few of these aspects of air pollution.
