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

CS tours Tai Po youth hostel

Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung, accompanied by Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui, today visited the Federation of Youth Groups' youth hostel PH2 in Tai Po to learn about its operation and latest developments.   They were briefed on the hostel by the federation's Executive Director Andy Ho and toured the hostel's units and various facilities.   The officials also exchanged views with frontline youth workers and a tenant to learn about their experiences and stories of operating and living in the hostel in the past year.   Mr Cheung expressed his gratitude to the federation for its care in running the youth hostel, which not only provides a comfortable living space for youth tenants, but also assists them in learning diverse life skills and financial planning through a wide variety of activities to help enable their upward mobility and realisation of aspirations.   He also noted that the current-term Government vigorously pushes forward youth hostel projects.   Apart from the Tai Po youth hostel, which was the first to be completed, Mr Cheung said the one in Ma Tin Pok, Yuen Long by Po Leung Kuk is the largest project in scale so far. Scheduled to open next year, it will provide 1,680 hostel places.   Five other projects being implemented will also offer more than 1,600 hostel places altogether.   Among them, the Sheung Wan project by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals and the Jordan project by the Girl Guides Association were granted funding approval by the Legislative Council Finance Committee in April for starting main construction works.   The Government will continue to play an active role in assisting non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to provide more youth hostel units as soon as possible, the Chief Secretary added.   The Youth Hostel Scheme aims to encourage NGOs to unleash the potential of development sites to achieve optimal land use and to meet the aspirations of working youths in having their own living spaces.   The Government will fund the full capital costs of youth hostel projects carried out by participating NGOs. Upon completion, NGOs will run the youth hostels on a self-financing basis.
