Based on all our results, most of the Singapore citizens (44%) are satisfied with their air quality and half of the HK citizens are not satisfied with their environment and air quality. Transportations are the main source of air pollution in both HK and Singapore, however Singaporeans are mostly satisfy with the measures done by the government while HK does not.

  • Conclusion

In conclusion, our group thinks that Singapore has a better environment than Hong Kong as Singapore Government has a better policy than Hong Kong.

As the result, Hong Kong climate rise rapidly in this few years. Hong Kong Government should provide more education to teenagers to protect the environment as they are our hope of next generation. Also, Government should promote the idea of 3”Rs” (Reduce, reuse and recycle) through advertisements and brochures.

Hong Kong’s air quality is worse than Singapore because Singapore has a Green environment. Hong Kong should learn from Singapore such as plant more trees, build rooftop gardens, etc. Besides Government, Hong Kong citizens should take the responsibility to keep the air fresh. Take more public transportation, use motorcars rather than LPG vehicles; these are all what citizens should do.

Last but not least, Hong Kong has limited lands than Singapore. Although the situation of Singapore is better than Hong Kong, they both need to find a solution to solve the problem. For Hong Kong, Government should level the mountains for housing and reclamation of lands. For Singapore, Government should borrow the lands from Malaysia.  

 Summarizing all the above, our group believes that the data analysis meet our hypothesis in which Singapore has a better environment than Hong Kong overall. Through this proposal, we can make a strong comparison in terms of environment between Hong Kong and Singapore. We should learn from each other to have a better future. Our group is looking forward to the change of Hong Kong!
