SDEV speaks to the media

Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Development, Mr Paul Chan, at a media session after attending the Legislative Council meeting today (July 3):

Reporter: There is an accusation that the Government is colluding with the business community ....

Secretary for Development: As I have said, different donors have different ideals and impose different conditions on their proposals to donate lands. In such circumstances, we think that it would be best for these interested donors to approach non-profit organisations to explore the possibilities of donating lands to these NGOs for them to take forward the projects to realise their ideals.
