Hong Kong may have 12 years to prepare for hosting the Asian Games if it bids for the 2023 instead of 2019 event. Secretary for Home Affairs Tsang Tak-sing yesterday noted that both Games are open for bidding at the same time. He stopped short of saying if a bid would definitely go ahead, but said the city had gained experience in hosting major sports events since the failed bid to host the 2006 Games.
