This time I investigated about the future Development of Hong Kong International Airport. So I explain about this Development plan. This Airport was designed as replacement for the former Hong Kong International Airport commonly known as Kai Tak Airport built in1925.
Expansion of this airport could be wasted due to Hong Kong’s turmoil and depreciation.
