DescriptionHKSAR governments attitude towards heritage conservation
After taking an in-depth look into the current situation of heritage conservation by collection public opinions through questionnaires and doing several of researches, we can find out that the government has done only a little on protecting, conserving and revitalizing heritage of Hong Kong.
