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

SJ meets legal sector

Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng met legal sector members at two briefing sessions today to explain the improvement to Hong Kong's electoral system to enable the stakeholders to have a better understanding of the matter and thereby render their support.   The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress yesterday passed the amended Annex I and Annex II to the Basic Law for improving Hong Kong's electoral system.   The amendments safeguarded the constitutional order set out by the Constitution and the Basic Law while enhancing Hong Kong's governance efficacy. As such, the "one country, two systems" principle will continue to be implemented steadfastly.   In addition to giving its full support to the Government's work to improve the electoral system as early as possible, the Department of Justice will provide explanations to the legal community on the importance, necessity and legality of the improvement to gain their staunch support.
