At the beginning of the year, Ocean Park submitted a development plan to the government, seeking funding of 10.64 billion yuan to build seven major parks and to overcome financial difficulties. However, at the time, it was estimated that the park was not affected by the epidemic situation. After nearly four months of review, the Hong Kong government decided to review the allocation of public funds. It is understood that the application for funding will be halved to about 5 billion yuan. The construction of this park will be temporarily suspended.
