Government urged to set up markets for low-income earners Listen
The chairman of the policy group Land Watch Lee Wing-tat says the government should set up markets in public housing estates so that low-income earners could buy food and other products at cheaper prices. His call came after Gaw Capital said it has agreed to purchase 17 malls and car parks from Link REIT for HK$23 billion. Lee says ever since the malls in the estates were taken over by Link REIT, many public housing tenants have complained that the prices being charged by shops there have gone up considerably. He says there’s fear that the situation may worsen at the malls being purchased by Gaw Capital. Lee spoke to Jim Gould.
