From 'The Standard'

"Being overzealous in saving the past may hurt Hong Kong's competitiveness, Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen warned Sunday, but he pledged the government will "keep pace with public sentiment" on heritage preservation."

Being overzealous requires there to be an amount of any zelousness to begin with.

But he said Hong Kong's development is "in danger of being hampered by insufficient and slow public investment" and argued that continued economic prosperity depends on new buildings being built and old ones replaced."

The only thing endangering Hong Kong's development is mulit-national corperations pulling out because they can't stand the air pollution. Oh wait that's already happening...
