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

Helpers' minimum wage unchanged

The Minimum Allowable Wage for foreign domestic helpers will remain at $4,630 per month, while the monthly food allowance will be increased by $52 to not less than $1,173, the Government announced today.   It made the decision after carefully considering Hong Kong's general economic and labour market conditions over the past year, as well as its near-term economic outlook, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.   The employers' affordability and the helpers' livelihood were also taken into consideration.   Under the Standard Employment Contract for hiring helpers, employers must provide them with free food or pay them a food allowance.
