There is no lack of ambitious bridge building in China. Now they want to link Hong Kong to Macau and Zhuhai, which is on mainland China:

It seems that the main focus of this bridge project is to open the landmass behind Macau and Zhuhai for economic development. Now that is doing something about economic development and job expansion!

Quite a story about “Two countries, two systems” that outlines how some freedom to print is allowed in Hong Kong and gets back to China.

I will email this piece to Lorne Gunter and John Kay, cheap shot columnists with the National Post.
