CE visits farm, market

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today visited a peach blossom farm in Pat Heung and Skylight Market in Tin Shui Wai to learn about their business situation and extend advance Lunar New Year greetings to members of the public.   The farm that Mrs Lam visited has been growing Lunar New Year flowers for more than 50 years. She thanked the farmer who is over 80 years old and has supplied peach blossom trees to Government House to celebrate the Lunar New Year for years, and paid tribute to him for running the farm for several decades.   Noting that owing to the epidemic, the Food & Environmental Hygiene Department had to make special arrangements for the Lunar New Year fairs, and as adjustments were also made subsequently, Mrs Lam said flower growers were bound to be affected and appealed for their understanding.   She pointed out that the Government will do its utmost to fight the virus in order to resume the daily lives of members of the public and help economic activities return to normal as soon as possible.   The Chief Executive added that she would support the promotion of high value-added and sustainable development of the local agricultural sector as well as provide technical support to farmers.   Accompanied by the Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan, Mrs Lam then visited the department’s Skylight Market in Tin Shui Wai.   The market began operation at the end of last year, providing 36 dry and wet goods stalls. With the application of the modular integrated construction method, the market was built in 10 months.   Mrs Lam noted that different anti-epidemic measures were taken in the market, including the installation of thermometers, display of the QR code for the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app and arrangement of contactless payment by all stalls.   She spoke to a number of stall operators and customers, and was pleased to note that they were satisfied with the market's novel design, clean environment, convenient location and smooth operation.   Mrs Lam also bought some fruit in the market and extended festive greetings to stall operators and residents.   The Chief Executive said the Government would continue to build new public markets and improve the facilities and management of existing markets in accordance with the plan announced earlier, including the building of new markets in Tseung Kwan O, Tin Shui Wai, Tung Chung and Kwu Tung North New Development Area as well as overhauling Aberdeen Market to meet the daily needs of the people.
