 Highlight of Talk:

Sustainable and user friendly environment, efficient connectivity, greening and landscaping provision, public spaces, or the providing of a pleasant cityscape for general public, are some basic context or facilities for modern cities to be provided by concerning governing authorities nowadays. This is a up-rising topic under the area of urban planning.

In the past few decades, cities in particular for those relatively less-developed one in Asian countries including Hong Kong, were not performing satisfactorily in achieving these targets. Japan to certain extent may be an exception. However, as the uplifting of general living standard and the getting better-off economically in many nearby regions especially after the millennium, situation get much improved.
