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

Alfred Sit visits grassroots families

Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit today joined a community care activity to distribute gift packs to the grassroots and visited two families in Kwun Tong.   The activity was organised by the Technology & Innovation Volunteers Alliance in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and the 24th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.   Mr Sit distributed gift packs to residents to extend his warm wishes. He then visited two families living in a sublet unit and subdivided unit to learn more about their living conditions and children's educational needs.   He gave the children STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) toys and teaching materials to encourage them to build a good foundation in STEM.   Mr Sit thanked the innovation and technology sector for uniting together to launch volunteer services with their professional strength to help the underprivileged.   He said it is heartening to see collaboration from various fronts to help more people in need and arouse public awareness in narrowing the digital divide, especially grassroots students with educational needs, to provide them with a level playing field.   The alliance’s volunteer activities include giving away refurbished computers to the underprivileged, assisting students in online learning, offering free computer repair and maintenance services and training in coding.
