    HK Gov might not inject capital into HKDL

    Hot from the Press!!!

    政府或不再注資迪士尼

    2007年12月19日

    商務及經濟發展局局長馬時亨,在立法會回答議員質詢時表示,不排除不再注資迪士尼樂園的可能。

    馬時亨指出,政府不懂得教迪士尼怎樣經營主題公園這盤生意,只能夠提供意見和督促管理層改善營 運狀況。

    馬時亨指出,為應付香港迪士尼樂園未來營運和發展的需要,政府和美國華特迪士尼公司已展開探討有關擴建和財 務方案。政府會審慎考慮各種財務方案的優點和缺 點,包括政府注資的方案,並進行初步的可行性評估。現時雙方仍然在初步磋商階段,未有達成任何協議。政府在 研究長遠的財務安排時,會作多方面的考慮,例如 對香港的經濟效益、新增樂園設施對本港居民及訪港旅客的吸引力、樂園的營運效益和盈利前景、和區內其他大型 景點的開發等。

    Hot from the press!!

    according to Singtao News....

    Frederick Ma, Secretary of Commerce and Economic Development gave a speech at Legislative Council today. "we don't rule out the possibility that we are NOT going to inject further capital into HKDL. We are unable to tell Walt Disney Company how to run theme park business. We can only provide advice and urge them to improve operations at the park."

    On top of the park’s disappointing turnout, the company has also irritated the city government with recurring reports that another Disneyland is to be built in Shanghai, according to the South China Morning Post, citing an anonymous government official who complained that the Shanghai Disneyland rumor resurfaced whenever the government was negotiating with Disney.


    The Hong Kong administration is now hesitant to inject more capital before the park makes a profit. "We have urged the management company to continue to improve operational efficiency and devise cost-effective marketing strategies," the government said in its annual update provided for the Legislative Council, Hong Kong’s parliament, to discuss this Friday.

    Why don't we just close this park down. No one is wanting to invest, its loosing attendance and Disney would rather this park be built in China anyway.

    just let WDC build the theme park in Mainland China and see if it would be really more successful. But i highly doubt it.

    I agree with HKDL, let Disney build Shanghai Disney see if it does any better.

    Hong Kong government should invest more money into HKDL. Once they signed the agreement to build and hold 54% in Hong Kong International Theme Park Ltd., they should be committed in bringing it to become a successful theme park. They should not abandon HKDL just because it did not show profits in the first two years of operations. Instead they should improve it by having more attraction as HKDL is criticised to have the least attractions of all Disney theme parks.
