DC election poll cards mailed

The Registration & Electoral Office today said it has mailed poll cards for the District Council Ordinary Election to about 4.33 million registered electors to inform them of where they should cast their votes on December 10.   Electors who have not received their poll cards may log in to the Online Voter Information Enquiry System to check whether they are registered electors and their designated polling stations, the office said.   District Council geographical constituency (DCGC) electors will be allocated to ordinary polling stations in the vicinity of their registered addresses. Polling hours will be from 8.30am to 10.30pm.   District Committees constituency (DCC) electors will be assigned to the polling stations of the DCCs to which they belong. The polling hours will be from 8.30am to 2.30pm. They will also receive a reminder on the poll card envelope that the DCC and DCGC vote will take place at two different polling stations with different polling hours.  

Event to explore new era in fintech

Hong Kong FinTech Week 2023 will be held from October 30 to November 5, with “Fintech Redefined” as its theme.


The event will bring together global leaders and fintech innovators to explore the future development of fintech under six key themes.


The themes are: global regulations and focuses such as sustainable and green finance; funding, venture capital, and family office investments; artificial intelligence, Web3 and emerging frontiers; opportunities within the Greater Bay Area; Hong Kong’s innovation journey; and showcasing businesses.


InvestHK, which organises Hong Kong FinTech Week in collaboration with the Financial Services & the Treasury Bureau, said the event will attract more than 30,000 attendees and garner 5 million online visits from individuals in more than 90 countries. It added that the main physical conference, scheduled for November 2 and 3, will bring together more than 300 distinguished speakers and 540 exhibitors.


Acting Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Joseph Chan said that Hong Kong’s fintech industry is entering a new era, one where the focus is not solely on technology but also its real-life application.


“We are excited to witness this transformation and its impact on the financial ecosystem,” he said.


Exhibits at the main conference will include immersive technologies, such as augmented and virtual reality devices, that will demonstrate the potential of the metaverse to connect businesses and promote Hong Kong’s culture.


Meanwhile, the cross-boundary Greater Bay Area Day will take place on October 31, presenting opportunities for synergies between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. A forum will be held in Shenzhen, along with tours of Mainland tech giants.


Besides the bureau and InvestHK, Hong Kong FinTech Week 2023 is co-organised with the Monetary Authority, the Securities & Futures Commission and the Insurance Authority.
