SCED visits Sha Tin District

  The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Edward Yau, today (June 6) visited Sha Tin District. He met with members of the Sha Tin District Council (STDC) and toured the Shek Mun Business Area there to get a better understanding of the district's latest developments and needs.

  Mr Yau first met with STDC members to listen to and exchange views on matters relating to the economic outlook, consumer protection, tourism and telecommunications.

  Mr Yau then proceeded to the Shek Mun Business Area, where he was briefed on how Shek Mun has been transformed from an industrial area into a business area and its recent developments. He gained a better understanding of the local traffic conditions and district affairs.

  Following the shift of the manufacturing sector to the Mainland and relaxation of planning restrictions by the Government, Shek Mun has gradually been transformed from a traditional industrial area into a mixed-use precinct in recent years. The district now includes offices, retail shops, restaurants and premises for other commercial uses.
