An amendment bill which seeks to provide clear legal backing for the Ocean Park Corporation to take forward the park’s future strategy will be gazetted on Friday.
The Government and the corporation started an exercise in the middle of last year to chart the park’s way forward.
Under the future strategy announced early this year, Ocean Park will be transformed into a travel destination and leisure zone focusing on conservation and education, grounded in nature and complemented by adventure and entertainment elements to enhance visitors’ experience.
The Government secured lawmakers’ approval for the financial arrangements on March 19. The legislative amendment exercise is the next step to enable the corporation to take forward the future strategy.
The Ocean Park Corporation (Amendment) Bill 2021 will be introduced into Legislative Council for first and second readings on June 23.
