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

Epidemic prevention experts visit HK

A delegation of Mainland epidemic prevention and control experts arrived in Hong Kong today for a four-day visit to learn about the city’s anti-epidemic efforts and measures.   The Mainland expert delegation is organised by the Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office of the State Council (HKMAO) and the National Health Commission.   The delegation members include epidemic prevention and control experts from the National Health Commission, Guangdong Province, Shenzhen and Zhuhai. The HKMAO and the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region are also represented.   Upon their arrival in Hong Kong, the delegation attended a briefing arranged by the Hong Kong SAR Government.   Welcoming the delegation at the briefing, Chief Secretary John Lee expressed gratitude to the central government for its support and care towards Hong Kong's efforts in preventing and fighting the COVID-19 epidemic.   Mr Lee explained that the expert delegation’s visit is an important follow-up to the meeting on anti-epidemic work of the Mainland and Hong Kong on September 26 and the video conference exchange between them on November 2.   He said the Hong Kong SAR Government will continue to work towards the goal of zero infection and guard sternly against the importation of cases and the resurgence of local infections.   It will continue to strengthen and put forward various anti-epidemic measures in accordance with the principle of joint prevention and control to foster favourable conditions to press ahead the resumption of quarantine-free travel between the Mainland and Hong Kong in a gradual and orderly manner, he added.   From November 21 to 23, the Mainland expert delegation will visit local institutions and facilities related to anti-epidemic work and meet relevant personnel to exchange views and share experiences.
