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

$4.3m set for quake victims

The Government today approved $4.34 million in grants to World Vision Hong Kong to help earthquake victims in Haiti.   Noting that the earthquake in the country had affected around 1.2 million people, the Government said the grant will be used to provide hygiene, shelter, bedding and kitchen kits for around 9,600 flood victims.   To ensure the money is properly used, the relief agency must submit an evaluation report and audited account after the relief project is completed.
