Hong Kong MTR

The Mass Transit Railway Corporation operates Hong Kong's railway system. It is also a major property developer and landlord in the city and is listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange.

Events such as the multiple MTR Corp scandals have affected public confidence in the city’s government, which in the long run could undermine its political and social stability. The government must rebuild the people’s confidence in infrastructure projects – the sooner the better.

Government and MTR Corp must wipe out public works blunders

It appears that history really does repeat itself. In 2014, MTR Corporation chief executive officer Jay Walder was forced to resign after mishandling communications pertaining to a delay in the Hong Kong section of the HK$67 billion high-speed railway link to Guangzhou.
