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

National security guidelines issued

The Education Bureau today issued circulars to schools to provide guidelines on school administration and education in relation to safeguarding national security.   The guidelines provide details about the mode of implementation and learning and teaching resources for national security education in the school curriculum.   The move aims to facilitate schools to implement measures to maintain a safe and orderly learning environment and promote national security education.   Schools should review as early as possible and devise appropriate measures in respect of planning and management, staff management, and other relevant areas to facilitate students' effective learning of national security, the bureau said.   It added that they should ensure all school staff uphold professional ethics, abide by the law and observe the code of conduct acceptable to society.   Schools should also step up the prevention and suppression of teaching or other school activities that are in breach of laws, prevent and deal with political or other illegal activities from permeating schools, and help students gain a correct understanding of the National Security Law and the important concepts covered by national security.   A number of specific measures, examples and templates are contained in the circular for schools' reference and follow-up.   The bureau will organise briefing sessions and professional development programmes for schools, and keep close contact with the education sector and provide it with timely support regarding implementation of the work concerned.   Click here for details.
