Patrick Nip meets logistics staff

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited the Government Logistics Department to learn about colleagues’ work and matters of concern.   Mr Nip said that the 2021 Policy Address proposed to enhance the effectiveness of governance, and the civil service as the Government’s backbone plays a vital role in implementing “one country, two systems”.   He encouraged staff to spare no efforts in supporting bureaus and departments, always bearing in mind to strive for excellence in service delivery.   They should be innovative, be adept at policy making as well as execution, work with a strong sense of responsibility, and make good use of innovation and technology to meet the opportunities and challenges in the new era, he added.   At the Storage & Distribution Section’s Unallocated Store, Mr Nip was briefed on the storage and delivery of essential and emergency items including protective gear for bureaus and departments.   In addition, Land Transport Division staff

FS expects strong GDP growth

Financial Secretary Paul Chan welcomed the passage of the Appropriation Bill 2021, adding that he expected Hong Kong to register a relatively strong, positive GDP growth in the first quarter.   Meeting the media after the bill was passed by the Legislative Council today, Mr Chan noted that the advance estimates on GDP for the first quarter will be published next week.   He expected a rebound in the GDP figure due to the improved COVID-19 pandemic situation and strong recovery in the external economic environment.   “We expect there would be pretty strong GDP growth because of the fact that the comparison base last year is very low. We registered a contraction of 9% in last year’s first quarter.   “Also, since the middle of last year, although on a year-over-year basis the GDP continued to contract, on the basis of quarter-to-quarter GDP comparison we have seen gradual improvement since the third quarter.   “Given that the pandemic situation now in Hong Kong is pretty much under control - although we still need to be very vigilant - and considering the fact that the external economic environment is also recovering very strongly, no matter if it is in the Mainland, the US or other Asian countries, we are confident that with the impressive improvement on the trade side and the gradual recovery on domestic consumption, the first quarter of this year will see a relatively strong, positive GDP growth.”
