South China Morning Post reports on Disney’s plans to turn Hong Kong’s Lantau Island into a resort destination:
“Hong Kong Disneyland, which has reported record attendance figures, said yesterday it was planning to double visitor numbers within a decade by turning Lantau into a major tourist destination.
“Developing tourism to Lantau, the biggest island in Hong Kong, was a key component of Disneyland’s strategy to attract 11 million visitors a year by 2022, almost double the record 5.9 million it attracted in 2011, said Andrew Kam Min-ho, managing director of theme park, which last year narrowed its net loss from HK$718 million to HK$237 million.
“Kam said Disneyland would hand the city’s new government, which takes office in July, a development plan drafted in consultation with an alliance including major Lantau stakeholders among them the island’s district council, exhibition companies, hotels and ferry operators. The government owns 57 per cent of the park.”
