Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui today expressed his gratitude to various listed issuers in Hong Kong for their support to the proposal of setting up a renminbi (RMB) stock trading counter.   Mr Hui stated that further to the help rendered by the Legislative Council Panel on Financial Affairs regarding the Government's proposed measures to promote the issuance and trading of RMB stocks in Hong Kong and enhance the trading mechanism, a number of listed issuers have also backed the proposal.   Such listed issuers will actively explore the feasibility of setting up a new RMB trading counter for their issued shares.   Mr Hui explained that listed issuers who indicated their support today include Hang Seng Index constituent stocks with promising turnover.   “Their participation is a vote of confidence to the development of RMB securities in Hong Kong, which will be conducive to our promotion work to other issuers, enabling Hong Kong to graduall

Vaccinated staff exempt from testing

Staff of residential care homes for the elderly (RCHEs), residential care homes for persons with disabilities (RCHDs) and nursing homes who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination course are exempted from the regular compulsory testing.   The Government made the announcement today as the Secretary for Food & Health amended the compulsory testing notice for the 14th round of compulsory testing for such staff.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued on April 26, those who are employed by and will be on duty at RCHEs, RCHDs, nursing homes and day service units attached to the premises of residential care homes between May 14 and 27 must undergo nucleic acid tests for COVID-19 during the period from April 30 to May 13.   Such a requirement also applies to those who will provide services to residents or users through hire-of-service contracts.   Those who received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine 14 days before the end of the testing period are not required to undergo the specified test.   However, they can still receive the free testing service if they voluntarily choose to undergo the test, the Government added.
