In einer Stadt mit einer hohen Bevölkerungsdichte und begrenztem Raum wie Hongkong indes ist der Weg hin zur Gestaltung einer fußgängerfreundlichen Umgebung nie geradlinig. Der Austausch von Erfahrungen europäischer und asiatischer Städte muss weiter ausgebaut werden, damit beide Kontinente auch zukünftig wegweisend in der Gestaltung urbanen Fußverkehrs bleiben.
