Swire Properties fully supports the Government's arts & cultural objectives. Our Cultural Harbour approach offers a holistic vision that goes beyond the mandatory requirements of the Invitation For Proposals (IFP) by building on the strengths of Hong Kong to make the most of our outstanding natural asset, the harbour, and the existing cultural facilities in a sustainable way.
The future development of the entire harbour area and the way in which Hong Kong develops its arts & culture policy is of utmost importance for the future of Hong Kong. To be effective, cultural development should grow naturally, in an integral manner, within a sound and flexible framework that is not limited to West Kowloon. We hope our proposal offers a different option for the Government and the people of Hong Kong to consider and can help stimulate public debate and help form a consensus on the way forward.
