The chairman of Professional Property Services, Nicholas Brooke, says he expects property developers to continue selling flats despite a sharp rise in the number of homeowners trapped in negative equity. He says if property prices keep dropping, the developers would be under more pressure to offload the flats they have on hand. Brooke also tells Annemarie Evans that he does not expect the government to start easing property-cooling measures for the time being.
Third runway project could be devastating for Chinese White Dolphins  Listenfacebook
The chairman of the Hong Kong Dolphin Conservation Society, Samuel Hung, says the building of the third runway at Hong Kong International Airport would have a devastating effect on the Chinese White Dophins in the area. He says their numbers have already declined since the construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge started a few years ago. Hung tells Priscilla Ng that it is "wishful thinking" on part of officials who believe the dolphins would return to the area once the building of the runway is completed.
