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

R&D funding scheme opens

The Innovation & Technology Commission is inviting applications for the 2021 Guangdong-Hong Kong Technology Cooperation Funding Scheme until November 19.   There are three project categories under the scheme.   The first category covers projects funded by the Innovation & Technology Fund, while the second involves those funded by relevant Mainland authorities.   The third category refers to projects jointly funded by the governments of Guangdong and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region or the governments of Shenzhen and the Hong Kong SAR.   The commission noted that there are 35 specific themes or topics in different technology areas under the third category this year.   Such areas align with the latest technology trends and industry needs of the two places and will encourage more diversified and quality research and development (R&D) projects for promoting economic development in the Greater Pearl River Delta region, it added.   Launched in 2004, the scheme provides funding for applied R&D projects in Guangdong and Hong Kong. Shenzhen joined the scheme in 2005.   Call 3655 5678 or send an email to the fund's secretariat for enquiries.
