Macau News Agency | Gov’t initiatives benefitting private parking spaces and industry

Macau (MNA) – A protest by thousands of participants in mid-June reflected drivers in the city have been suffering in recent years from the government’s initiatives in tackling parking space problems, while the initiatives have been benefiting private parking spaces and the parking management industry, writes Tony Lai in an article in Macau Business’ July issue.

Chan Lik Ki, the General Manager of CarparKing Co Ltd., an agency specialising in the sale and rental of parking spaces in the city, indicated that cooling real estate measures and various new measures affecting parking management has led to the hike in the price of private parking spaces in recent years.

Chan said the shortage of parking spaces has pushed up values and rents whenever the government introduces new parking management measures.

Meanwhile, legislator Antonio Ng Kuok Cheong said the government has raised relevant penalties and charges despite it being aware of the shortage and uneven distribution of parking spaces in the city.

“This indirectly pushes up the price of private parking spaces, leading to the public perception of the government doing favours for business interests,” said the legislator.

Ng questioned why the government does not limit vehicle imports to curb the growth of vehicles.

Macau CPM Holdings – a local company which controls one of the largest parking companies in the city – recently applied for listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, with data in the IPO document revealing the potential growth of the parking management industry in Macau.

Marketing research firm Frost & Sullivan stated in a document that ‘the gradual increasing supply of public parking spaces during the past few years and the surging prices of private [car parking] spaces have supported the steady growth of the parking management service industry.’

舉家移民 資產點樣算

近月香港最受關注的話題除了港版國安法,就是「移民」,網上擠滿了形形式式不同地區的移民話題,例如台灣移民、加拿大移民、BNO移民、依親移民、讀書移民、寵物移民等等。本次移民潮涉及的階層廣泛,由中產至學生,由父母家長至寵物。數月前筆者曾於《移民潮會否推跌樓價?》比較過本次移民潮與九十年代移民潮的分別,及它對物業市場的影響。 近一年因中美關係緊張,各界擔心雙方角力衝擊香港經濟,紛紛建議將港元資產轉美金保平安。之後因應疫情,美國聯儲局於三月宣佈無限QE拓市,未等到港元冧,手上的現金已開始貶值,投資目標隨即又轉到實物資產上。在這樣急速變化的環境下考慮移民,對身心都是一場考驗。
