Hope fades for one of hong kong's last sawmills as eviction clock ticks

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Hope fades for one of Hong Kong’s last sawmills as eviction clock ticks” – below is their description.

The eviction deadline for Hong Kong’s largest sawmill has passed, but the business still hopes for more time to prevent the waste of valuable wood. The timber processing operation that dated back to the city’s post-WWII era, was scheduled to be vacated September 13, 2022, to make way for metropolitan development plans. They were granted an extension to use up stocks of materials, but could not manage to do the work in time.

In This Story: Hong Kong

Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
