  As a large number of people live in land-scarce Hong Kong, the shortage of housing supply has been a long-term obsession of the HKSAR government. As a result, to solve the problem of housing supply is one of the key jobs of the new HKSAR government. In November 2017, Mrs. Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Chief Executive of HKSAR, proposed in her first policy address that the government would promote the adoption of short-term measures under the leading of non-profit-making organizations to increase the supply of transitional housing to alleviate the living difficulties of the families waiting for public housing and other persons in poor living conditions. The proposal includes prefab houses usually called “container house” built on idle land.

  Headquartered in Hong Kong, Florens Asset Management Company Limited, is a merger of Florens Container Holdings Limited and Dong Fang International Investment Limited in May, 2016. The Company mainly leases and manages containers and sells old containers.
