Insufficient land supply and surging property price are among the major factors that make the housing problem in Hong Kong a complex and pressing one. The Under Secretary for Transport and Housing Dr Raymond So joined PolyU faculty as well as professionals and representatives from industry and NGOs to share views and knowledge at the seminar on “transitional pre-fabricated modular housing” organized by PolyU.
