Policy Address measures highlighted

Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau today briefed members of the Trade & Industry Advisory Board on initiatives related to commerce and trade in the 2021 Policy Address.   Mr Yau said the Policy Address focuses on integration into national development and states that the developments of Hong Kong and the nation are closely related.   While the nation is the major growth engine and driving force for the global economy, the 14th Five-Year Plan, the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the Qianhai plan, the economic development pattern of not only greater domestic circulation but also domestic and international dual circulation, as well as the Belt & Road Initiative have brought unlimited opportunities for enterprises and professional services providers in Hong Kong.   The city must seize these opportunities and leverage its advantages, Mr Yau noted.   During the meeting, the commerce chief stressed that Hong

SZ Bay service hours to extend

The operating hours of passenger clearance services at the Shenzhen Bay Control Point will be adjusted to 10am to 10pm daily from April 29, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government announced today.   Currently, the operating hours of passenger clearance services at the control point is 10am to 8pm daily.   It said the move to extend the service hours was made having regard to the latest epidemic development in the Mainland and the Hong Kong SAR, and to tie in with the extension of the Return2hk Scheme from April 29.   The Hong Kong SAR Government and the Shenzhen Municipal Government have agreed to extend the operating hours of passenger clearance services to enable cross-boundary travellers with genuine needs to travel without posing an additional health risk to the two places.   It is also a step towards the resumption of cross-boundary people flow between the two places in a gradual and orderly manner.   Since January 30 last year, the Hong Kong SAR Government has suspended passenger clearance services at 12 land-based and sea-based control points by phases.   Only the Shenzhen Bay Control Point and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port are still providing passenger clearance services at present.
