Exhibition of Tamar proposals draws more than 30,000 visitors More than 30,000 people have viewed an exhibition of proposals for the design of the government headquarters at the Tamar site in Admiralty since March, a government spokesman said. Some 13,000 of the visitors have filled out comment cards at the exhibition or on the internet. Their views were being analysed and would be passed to the special selection board headed by Chief Secretary Rafael Hui Si-yan that will decide which of the four tenders for the HK$5.2 billion project wins, the spokesman said. The exhibition, at the Heritage Discovery Centre in Kowloon Park, ends tomorrow. Average family a bit better off Median monthly household income is continuing to rise, a government survey shows.
