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

CE meets CPPCC members

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today held an engagement session with 90 Hong Kong members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) via video conferencing to discuss topics such as the developments of Hong Kong and the Mainland.   The members spoke enthusiastically during the meeting and Mrs Lam listened attentively to their views on various areas, including their concerns about vaccination and expectations for early resumption of travel between people of Hong Kong and the Mainland, and local economic activities.   The Chief Executive emphasised that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will spare no effort in fighting the epidemic and taking forward the vaccination programme.   Noting that how Hong Kong is integrated into the overall development of the nation is a crucial issue, with the country’s 14th Five-Year Plan, the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Belt & Road Initiative to bring enormous opportunities to Hong Kong, Mrs Lam said it is of paramount importance to Hong Kong's future, particularly with regard to youth development.   She hopes that CPPCC Hong Kong members will work together with the Hong Kong SAR Government to strive for the support of the central authorities as well as the co-operation of the Guangdong Provincial Government and the Shenzhen Municipal Government to explore more room for Hong Kong's development.   Mrs Lam and the CPPCC Hong Kong members will attend the NPC and CPPCC meetings to be held in Beijing next month.   Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung, Secretary for Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang and Chief Executive's Office Director Chan Kwok-ki also attended the session.
