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

Countryside campaign launched

The Environmental Protection Department today announced that its Countryside Conservation Office launched the Back to Our Countryside campaign to encourage the public to explore Hong Kong's remote rural areas.   As one of the celebration activities for the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the campaign includes a photo and video competition as well as online guided tours.   With the theme of Retaining the Past, the photo and video competition enables people to explore and showcase the unique natural aspects of Hong Kong's countryside through the lens so as to raise public awareness of rural conservation.   It comprises primary school and secondary school categories and an open category, and is open for entries until July 11.   Winning entries will be displayed in an exhibition named Future Captured to be held at the Central Market.   For the online guided tours themed Visible Now, participants can visit Lai Chi Wo, Sha Lo Tung, Sham Chung and Kuk Po online to learn about the time-honoured culture of Hong Kong's countryside areas and diverse natural ecology under the guidance of experienced tour professionals.   Members of the public may register online to join the tours starting today.
