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

Excellent civil servants commended

Chief Executive John Lee today commended and congratulated winners of the Civil Service Outstanding Service Award Scheme 2022.   Prizes were presented in four categories for this year’s award scheme, including the Excellence in Partnership Awards, Excellence in Service Enhancement Awards, Excellence in Team Collaboration Awards and the newly introduced Innovation & Technology Awards in collaboration with the Innovation, Technology & Industry Bureau.   Fifty-five entries from 32 bureaus and departments were awarded under 11 categories.   Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony, Mr Lee lauded the achievements of every winning and participating project, which he described as good stories of the civil service and examples of outstanding achievements worthy of public recognition.   He noted that with the core value of heeding the people’s needs, the civil service team responds to people’s aspirations for a better life, and contributes to the integration into the country’s national development.   The Government will improve the civil service management system, motivate civil servants to scale higher and demonstrate the citizen-oriented service culture, he stressed.   He also encouraged various departments and their staff to complement each other while performing respective functions in order to achieve synergy and create the greatest value for society.   Also attending the ceremony, Secretary for the Civil Service Ingrid Yeung expressed hope that the award scheme would give wider recognition to the efforts in the civil service.   Government staff can inspire and learn from each other to reinforce the citizen-oriented service ethos, with a view to enhancing the quality of public service for the benefit of the citizens and Hong Kong’s development, she said.   A dedicated television programme on the winning entries will be shown on RTHK TV 31.
