The Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam, said the government is fully behind the idea of making the city more pedestrian-friendly.
She was speaking at the Walk21 conference, where policymakers, urban planners and other stakeholders are discussing how to make cities more walkable.
Lam said the government doesn't always agree with the conference organiser, Civic Exchange, but they're on the same page on the issue of walkability.
She said the administration has been working to provide barrier-free pedestrian links, and an easily accessible harbourfront.
The CEO of Civic Exchange, Maura Wong, said it was encouraging to see the government in sync with the community on this issue.
The conference runs until Friday, and will be open to the public on Thursday.
