CE begins visit to Xi'an

Chief Executive Carrie Lam left Chongqing for Xi'an today and began her visit programme in Shaanxi Province.   After arriving in Xi'an, she met Shaanxi Governor Zhao Yide and attended a lunch he hosted.   Mrs Lam said she was pleased to visit Shaanxi for the first time as Chief Executive and congratulated Shaanxi on the successful hosting of the 14th National Games.   She expressed hope that Shaanxi would share its valuable experience, enabling the governments of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Guangdong Province and the Macau SAR to do a good job in hosting the 15th National Games in 2025.   Noting that Shaanxi is a key link for the nation's Belt & Road Initiative with its rich cultural history, the Chief Executive said the two places can build on the close trade and economic ties to enhance collaboration to contribute to the initiative and promote arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world.   She added that the Hong Kong

Jordan operation not a 'lockdown': CE

Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the restricted area in Jordan was set up for the purpose of conducting compulsory COVID-19 testing and that there is a difference between what the Government is doing and what people normally refer to as a “city lockdown” in other parts of the world.   Speaking to the media after inspecting the restricted area today, Mrs Lam explained the scope of the Government’s operation there.   “On many occasions, any public health measures - especially in terms of mandating people to be subject to COVID-19 tests and requiring shops and premises to close - require the full co-operation of the citizens and also the businesses, but the Government is obliged to provide all the needed assistance.   “In this case, for example, we know that the residents being affected are not allowed to leave their home for up to 48 hours. So what the Government has done is we provided them with food packs which we believe should be able to support them for the next two days.   “And if there are other necessary requirements, they could always call our hotline and we will try to help. So that’s the approach that we have taken in supporting this type of operation.”   Mrs Lam also explained why the Jordan restricted area operation should not be regarded as a “lockdown”.   “I must make it very clear, that what we are doing is not what people see in other places as a lockdown. Because a lockdown normally means that you are not allowed to go out for a period. But in our case, this prohibition is linked to the test, so that’s why in English we call this a restriction-testing declaration. It is for the purpose of the compulsory testing.    “Once the compulsory testing for the entire area has been completed, then the order will be lifted and people will be allowed to go out.   “I would say that there is a difference between what we are doing in Hong Kong and what people normally refer to as a ‘city lockdown’ in other parts of the world.”
