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

Govt seeks talented youths

The Member Self-recommendation Scheme for Youth started phase four of its recruitment today.   The number of participating committees has been increased from 10 to 15, covering a wider spectrum of policy areas. Each of the committees will offer two seats for appointment.   Young people aged 18 to 35 who want to serve the community are invited to nominate themselves to join.   Those interested should have a strong commitment to serve the community, good understanding of the policy area concerned, and good analytical and communication skills.   Applications close on May 26 and scheme details are available on the Home Affairs Bureau website.    Applicants must write no more than 600 words or provide a video or audio clip to explain, in either Chinese or English, their suitability for the committee they choose.   The Home Affairs Bureau said around 400 posts are currently held by young people who have been appointed to advisory and statutory bodies through the scheme.   The overall ratio of youth members in these bodies has increased from 7.8% in 2017 to the current 13.7%, gradually approaching the target of 15% set by the current-term Government, it added.
