Reprovisioning and Redevelopment of the HKSI

In early July, the International Olympic Committee announced that Hong Kong would stage the 2008 Olympics equestrian events. As the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI) will become one of the core competition venues, the HKSI will rent Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village where temporary headquarter will be established.

The Home Affairs Bureau and the HKSI held two rounds of meetings with Elite Sports National Sports Associations (NSAs) on the temporary re-provisioning of HKSI training facilities.

Patrick Ho Chi-ping, Secretary for Home Affairs, announced the setting up of the Joint Task Force on the Redevelopment of Hong Kong Sports Institute (JTF) on 22 July to propose the future redevelopment plan of the HKSI. The JTF, co-chaired by Dr Eric Li Ka-cheung (HKSI Chairman) and Professor Frank Fu Hoo-kin (Elite Sports Committee Vice Chairman), will submit a redevelopment proposal for the HKSI to the Sports Commission in January 2006. The JTF is composed of eight other members from the Elite Sports Committee and the HKSI Board.

In an attempt to obtain NSAs' opinion on the redevelopment of the HKSI, the HKSI Management has started a consultation process.
