HONG KONG - A second plot of land in Hong Kong received an open bid of HK$3.6 billion ($460 million) on Monday, after the government sold another in its first major government land auction in about two years. Just minutes earlier, the government sold a plot of land at HK$5.15 billion, more than 40 percent above the open bid of HK$3.6 billion, but below the market consensus of HK$5.45 billion.
