Why Develop Lantau?

  • Lantau, the largest island of Hong Kong, has evolved from a remote area into a place of diversity with new town and country parks since the relocation of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) to Chek Lap Kok.
  • With a strategic geographic location and transport infrastructures, including the HKIA and Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB), Lantau will no longer be the west end of Hong Kong but a double gateway to the world and the Greater Pearl River Delta (PRD) region.
  • For the long-term sustainable development of Hong Kong, Lantau can provide land for social and economic development and valuable natural and cultural assets for conservation.
