Dignitary visits Docklands

Hong Kong’s most senior government official visited Docklands last month.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s Chief Secretary for Administration, was invited to visit Australia by the Federal Government.

She arrived in Melbourne on September 13 and, amongst other activities, took some time to visit the Library at the Dock and tour Etihad Stadium.

According to City of Melbourne councillor Kevin Louey, Ms Lam met with Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and the council provided Ms Lam and her delegation with a site visit to the library and a presentation about Docklands.

“She heard how Library at the Dock was developed through a tri-partnership arrangement between the City of Melbourne, Lend Lease and Places Victoria. It has made a significant contribution to building infrastructure and a sense of community at Docklands,” Cr Louey said.

Ms Lam first visited Docklands in 2008 when she was Secretary for Development.

During her visit last month she was provided with an overview of the development and was briefed on the future plans for the area.

“Our government is proactively transforming Kowloon East, a former industrial heartland, into another major business district to support our economic growth and strengthen our global competitiveness,” Ms Lam said.

“The success story of Docklands has set a good example for us to follow.”

While in Melbourne, Ms Lam also visited the Royal Children’s Hospital, met with chairman of the Victorian Major Events Company Rod Eddington and visited the National Gallery of Victoria.

She also met with Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and Victorian Leader of the Opposition Matthew Guy.
