More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

EU vaccine exports monitored

The Government today said it is gravely concerned about the European Union's (EU) announcement of implementing an export control mechanism, and if necessary, banning the export of COVID-19 vaccines.   The EU's announcement stated that it will strive to ensure the new regulation does not affect the exports under advance purchase agreements already entered into between vaccine manufacturers and third parties.   The Government has proactively followed up with the vaccine manufacturers it has advance purchase agreements with to ensure that the vaccines procured can be supplied to Hong Kong as scheduled.   It has indicated to Fosun Pharma that it should reach out to the various relevant parties to ensure that the Fosun/BioNTech vaccine to be exported for supply to Hong Kong under the advance purchase agreement will not be affected.   The Government will closely monitor the development of the situation.   It will also continue to negotiate purchase agreements with vaccine manufacturers from around the world and the Mainland to obtain more supplies of vaccines which meet the criteria of safety, efficacy and quality, and strive for the early supply of the vaccines to Hong Kong.
