Abstract: Connections, deep pockets and perseverance were important in the awarding of contracts for Hong Kong's US$10.5 billion airport megaproject. The author notes many of the firms involved in the project and discusses the techniques that several used to obtain the work. In addition to the airport project, other pending projects are noted, as is the effect on Hong Kong of an economic slowdown in China and the potential for political and economic disruption following China's takeover of Hong Kong in 1997.
