Rural voter registration opens

The voter registration campaign for the 2021 Rural Representative Election opened today.   Those eligible should sign up by July 16, the Home Affairs Department said.   There are three types of rural representatives - Indigenous Inhabitant Representatives, Resident Representatives and Kaifong Representatives.   Indigenous Inhabitant Representatives are returned by indigenous inhabitants, their spouses or surviving spouses of an indigenous or composite indigenous village.   They reflect indigenous inhabitants’ views on village affairs, and deal with affairs relating to indigenous inhabitants’ lawful traditional rights and interests and the traditional way of life.   Resident Representatives are returned by both indigenous and non-indigenous inhabitants living in an existing village. They reflect views on village affairs on behalf of the residents.   Kaifong Representatives, returned by Cheung Chau or Peng Chau residents, reflect residents’ views on the two market towns’ affa

Travel bubble relaunches May 26

(To watch the full press conference with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The Government today announced that flights under the Hong Kong-Singapore Air Travel Bubble (ATB) will begin on May 26 with more stringent public health protocols.   The air travel bubble, announced last year, was deferred due to the developments of the COVID-19 epidemic in Hong Kong.   Under the more stringent measures, Hong Kong residents travelling under the ATB can only take designated flights to Singapore at least 14 days after they have had two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.   Announcing the scheme's relaunch at a press conference today, Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau said the vaccination requirement was aimed at encouraging Hong Kong citizens to get vaccinated as soon as possible for better self-protection against COVID-19 when travelling.   “As we all know, having (been) vaccinated (means) you (have) got a higher protection for your own self. Therefore, we consider this as something that we should do and also (are) capable of doing because of the availability of (vaccines) in Hong Kong, not to mention the choice (of vaccines people) can have.”   Riding on the original arrangement, the two governments will impose more stringent measures on travel history prior to departure, the mechanism to suspend or resume the ATB and contact tracing, details of which can be found here.   Mr Yau hoped the ATB, if successfully implemented, could serve as the basis upon which similar arrangements could be made with other economies.   “This will be something we need to look at on a bilateral basis, whether we consider the other partner (as) having a very stable and safe situation.   “Since we started this conversation and dialogue in the middle of last year, we have been keeping in touch with a number of economies, updating them (on) the progress.   “For instance, immediately after the agreement with Singapore, I am going to let some other partners, for instance New Zealand, Australia know that we have this arrangement and we can use that as a basis for further discussion with them. And subject to a bilateral consensus, I think this process can be carried on.”

Where is Hong Kong?

Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. As a reflection of this, the heart of Asia’s world city has always been the bustling and beautiful Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong’s 1,104-square-kilometer area comprises Hong Kong Island, which lies to the south of the harbour, the Kowloon Peninsula, which forms its northern shores, the New Territories to the north of Kowloon, which stretch all the way to Mainland China, and more than 200 outlying islands, including Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is located.
