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

Electoral system briefings held

Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui today held three briefing sessions for the sports and culture sectors to explain the improvements to Hong Kong's electoral system.   The sessions enabled the stakeholders to have a better understanding of the approval by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of amendments to Annexes I and II of the Basic Law and render their support.   Mr Tsui said the improvements to Hong Kong's electoral system can accord with the city's actual situation and better attend to the society's overall interests, which enhances the governance of Hong Kong.   As such, the "one country, two systems" principle will continue to be implemented steadfastly, maintaining Hong Kong's advantages, he added.   Mr Tsui will conduct more sessions to brief various sectors, listen to their opinions and call on the community for their full support on the relevant amendments.
