Urban metabolism is determined as a model which facilitates to quantify and analyze the overall fluxes related to energy, material, and water along with wastes into as well as out of an urban based region. This model renders all-inclusive information regarding the prevailing health of a respective city.In addition, information related to elements such as material cycling, energy efficiency, waste management and efficacy of infrastructure can be derived from this process (University of Toronto, “Understanding the Urban Metabolism”). The primary aim of this study is to provide a detailed evaluation concerning the various aspects relating to urban metabolism in Hong Kong. In addition, there are other factors pertaining to the various attributes of the region which will examined and the different components of the region’s inputs and outputs pertaining to energy, water, airborne contaminants and solid wastes among others will be assessed. The study would facilitate to assess the influence of engineered infrastructure on metabolism of Hong Kong based on the derived concept (Douglas, Goode, Houck and Wang 1-70). Thesis Statement. This study intends to identify the prevailing urban metabolism in Hong Kong. For accomplishment of this broad aspect, various studies pertaining to the determination of the particular region’s energy efficiency, waste management and infrastructural efficacy would be examined in a precise manner. In relation to the aspects of metabolism, the country of Hong Kong has been chosen. Hong Kong is recognized as special administrative region of the People's Republic of China. It has land mass that constitute an area of 1,104 km2. It has a total population of seven million natives. Hong Kong consists of three territories i.e. New Territories, Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula. The country is located on the south coast regions of China (Terri 1-50). Metabolism of a country is likely to be affected by way of various factors that may vary. In relation to Hong Kong, the factors may constitute different attributes i.e. transportation system, utilization of soil, lifestyles of the individuals, climatic conditions and factors pertaining to the environmental aspects among others. In relation to the determination of the following attributes, an appropriate report concerning the metabolism facts of the concerned country will be determined (Terri 1-80). TASK 2: Source: (Rhodes, Warren, and Koenig 347-359; Rhodes, Warren, and Koenig 429-438; Pacific consulting Group, “Hong Kong”: Kennedy, Cuddihy and Yan, “The Changing Metabolism of Cities”: Science Council of Japan, “Urban Metabolism in Asian Cities with Emphasis on Hong Kong”; Air Services Group, “Air Quality in Hong Kong”). TASK 3: In this part of the study, reports pertaining to the various sustainable ways that can be effectively utilized to curb the problems associated with metabolism in Hong Kong will be widely evaluated in an in-depth manner. There are certain factors pertaining to urban infrastructure that can result in making the particular aspect possible. Urban infrastructure can result in making various changes in a country and can also bring about improvement in the rates of metabolism in Hong Kong. Urban infrastructure may be related to improved transportation systems that can very well lead to the development of a particular nation. It can also facilitate the overall development in the sustainable energy efficiency in Hong Kong and can lay a helping hand towards the aspects of metabolism development (Terri 1-80). Urban infrastructure can lead to the development of resources of a particular nation and can bring about diversity in the management of resources in a very efficient manner. This aspect can prove to be very beneficial for the development of Hong Kong. In case of urban metabolism in Hong Kong, a precise focus on management of metabolic rates emanating from residual wastes and other sorts of energy consuming activities can enable Hong Kong to ensure better

A Case Study Analysis: Hong Kong 1.1. Government’s Role in Enhancing Economic Competitiveness Various economists have discussed the importance of economic competitiveness and also suggested several measures to attain the objectives to develop knowledge-based society.
It has covered near about 870,000 square metres of land. The park became a non- profit organisation in 1987 and is managed by Ocean Park Corporation incorporated under Ocean Park Ordinance. Ocean Park is a public educational and entertainment park. The main objective of this park is to provide people with both education and recreation.
As a result the societies have been faced with recurrent problems which seem not to be ending. The government should therefore work hand in hand with the law courts to ensure there are correct measures and laws that will uphold the integrity of Hong Kong’s society.
Beginning as a fishing village, trading ground and salt production site, it later evolved to a military port of tactical importance and ultimately an international financial centre which has one of the best worlds Gross Domestic Product per capita, supporting around 33% of the total foreign capital flows to China (Carroll, 2007).
Disneyland theme parks are flourishing in the United States and Tokyo, but they have struggled in Hong Kong and Paris (Needle, 2004, p.522). This essay explores several issues regarding Disney’s challenges in Hong Kong and Paris, and it also determines the best country and city for the next Disneyland.
Upon seeing these things, Hong Kong has a big potential in attracting tourists and more likely uplift the Hotel industries within its vicinity. However, due to the fact that Honk Kong is very much industrialized, we cannot neglect the fact that most of the operations of Hotels here compromises with the environment in terms of energy and some natural resources.
Hong Kong has made tremendous impact on the whole Chinese film industry, in particular, due to its prominent filming trends and distinguishable characteristics. Before the return into China, there was an euphoric discussion about Hong-Kong's astounding development to a world-class city.
Strategies for lessening the impact of this disease in China will be discussed, with emphasis on education and lifestyle intervention.
Diabetes is one of the most widespread chronic illnesses in the world. It is estimated that in the year 2000, over 7.5 million people died from the disease or its complications (Roglic, et al.
