The Democratic Party will ask the government to evaluate a worst-case scenario for the $22 billion Hong Kong Disneyland if it had to deal with competition from a Shanghai theme park. The call came as a government official confirmed yesterday it had not sought any exclusivity provision in its joint-venture agreement with the Walt Disney Corporation. Tourism Commissioner Rebecca Lai Ko Wing-yee said: 'There are no exclusivity provisions . . . on either party, which means consideration can also be given to the development of other major attractions in Hong Kong if there is a supporting market. But there is a strong common incentive . . . to make Hong Kong Disneyland a success.' Democrat legislator Albert Ho Chun-yan said his party would hold an emergency meeting to ask Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung if the government could take legal action against Disney if it was found there were unfavourable terms in the agreement. Democratic Party leader Martin Lee Chu-ming said the government could take legal action against Disney if it could produce any written document to prove that Disney chairman Michael Eisner promised then-financial secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen last September that no other Disney theme park would be opened until Hong Kong Disneyland was mature and up and running. 'We will definitely keep a very close eye on this issue because of the prospects of Hong Kong possibly incurring a huge loss in this project,' he said. 'If this project proves non-viable, why should the government continue pouring money into this?' Mr Lee said the government could no longer use as an excuse Disney's assertion that the company was a substantial shareholder in Hong Kong Disneyland and would therefore not do anything to hurt its own project. This assertion was incompatible with Disney's plan to build a theme park in Shanghai. 'The government should stop using this line to assure Hong Kong people that the Disney project will not lose money,' he said. Side-stepping a question on whether the government would consider legal action against Disney, Ms Lai said: 'We believe our course of action is legal and is in the best interest of Hong Kong.' Mr Lee rejected Ms Lai's statement, saying: 'It did not mean anything at all.' He asked acting Secretary for Environment, Transport and Works Stephen Lam Sui-lung at yesterday's Legco transport subcommittee meeting whether the government should review the revenue projections if Hong Kong Disneyland were to face competition from Shanghai. 'Did their original forecasts take into account a competing theme park in Shanghai?' he asked.
