Report: China Military Port Gets Key Hong Kong Go-Ahead | Defense News | defensenews.com

Hong Kong has taken a key step towards approving the construction of a Chinese military port along its waterfront, China’s state media reported Saturday, despite fierce public opposition to the move.

In a unanimous decision, Hong Kong’s Town Planning Board Friday gave the green light for the construction of a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) military port in the city’s Central District, state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) said.

The proposal to develop the port — marked for an area of prime harborfront property covering 2,970 square meters — must now be approved by Hong Kong’s top policy-making body before it becomes final, CCTV reported.
