HKETO Director joins 3rd Collingwood World Summit on Habitat in Towns 2022

Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Ms Emily Mo, joined the third Collingwood World Summit held between October 31 and November 1 with a focus on sustainable housing and finance. 

Hosted by the town of Collingwood in partnership with the Urban Economy Forum and UN-Habitat, the Summit provided a platform for town leaders, public and private sector partners, urban activists, academics and civil society to exchange and share best practices pertaining to sustainable development goals in towns. The theme for this year’s Summit is “Habitat in Towns”.

Presenting at the Summit, Ms Mo shared the plan for Hung Shui Kiu New Development Area in Hong Kong with participants. “Strategically located in the North-western part of Hong Kong, and well connected to the mainland of China, Hong Kong International Airport and other new towns, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government spearheads the Hung Shui Kiu New Area Development into a regional hub in the North-western part of Hong Kong,” Ms Mo said.

“The significance of the development is to supply a number of public and private housing units in the medium-to-long term while providing land for diversified economic uses ranging from offices, retail, dining and entertainment, logistics, technology and industrial operations, creating about 150 000 of jobs,” Ms Mo continued. 

Before closing, Ms Mo highlighted that the new development area project not only integrated leisure space with natural, cultural and landscape resources but also optimize transport infrastructure and promote green mobility and living style.
