Scrutinizing the deal Saturday, lawmakers said the Hong Kong executive has not disclosed the park's attendance figures or told them how well it has performed in the more than three years since it opened. They said they needed to see more details of the expansion before they could vote Friday to approve or reject the plan.
"We have to decide whether to approve the commitment of this large sum as equity for the expansion of the park, but we have been given very little information. This is really depressing," said pro-government lawmaker Starry Lee.
This could be interesting, and that is what you get when you are in partnership with local governments rather than a private enterprise. While the situation may not be identical, Disney may want to consider to expect something similar when it partners with the local government for Shanghai Disneyland.
