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

Exam venue measures announced

The Education Bureau today announced that schools providing examination venues for this year’s Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE) should suspend face-to-face classes from April 26 to 30 and May 3.   Schools may decide whether to arrange online teaching for other classes based on their school-based circumstances.   Given the volatile situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, the bureau and the Examinations & Assessment Authority have been communicating closely with the Centre for Health Protection and the education sector to ensure the DSE can start on April 23 under safe circumstances.   The new measure aims to release more classrooms for exam venues and more teachers for assuming the invigilator role, as well as complement the need to step up precautionary measures against COVID-19.   The authority will issue a letter to inform schools of the above arrangements.
