Kat O Heritage Trail opens

The Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department today opened the Kat O Heritage Trail in collaboration with Kat O village to mark the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark.   In addition to further promoting Kat O’s history, culture and intangible cultural heritage, the trail offers an in-depth travel experience to visitors.   Located in northeastern New Territories waters, Kat O is a harmonious community built by fishermen and Hakkas hand in hand.   The trail, with 27 interpretation panels along the route, was planned on the existing footpath and connects many important historical and cultural relics.   Visitors may explore an old Chinese restaurant and grocery store on Kat O Main Street, walk past old banyan trees where villagers used to take a rest or stop by a former pig farm and outdoor cinema.   A more in-depth understanding of Kat O’s long history is warranted by a visit to Kat O Tin Hau Temple and Sai O Hexagonal Well.   Visitors may also enjo

CE's advisory body convenes

The Chief Executive’s Council of Advisers on Innovation & Strategic Development held its 12th meeting today during which members provided their views and suggestions on the 2021 Policy Address.   Chief Executive Carrie Lam said with the implementation of the National Security Law and improvements to the electoral system, stability had been restored and the relationship between the Executive and the Legislature improved. Consequently, there were rising expectations for more effective governance and a greater resolve to address some long standing problems in Hong Kong society.   Members shared Mrs Lam’s view that the Government should demonstrate in the coming Policy Address, albeit this being the last one in the current-term Government, determination in resolving “bottlenecks” in land and housing supply, nurturing talent, offering diversified career opportunities for young people, providing affordable medical care, and building a more charming and liveable Hong Kong.   They opined that the 2021 Policy Address should be forward-looking and visionary, setting eyes on the future to instil hope and confidence.   Mrs Lam noted that the Government will assure the local and international community that Hong Kong’s fundamental strengths have not changed, with the rule of law as robust as ever.   She pointed out that Hong Kong has a bright future under “one country, two systems” and will emerge stronger by leveraging its traditional strengths and seizing opportunities arising from the 14th Five-Year Plan, the Greater Bay Area development and the Belt & Road Initiative.   Members congratulated Hong Kong athletes for their excellent performance at the Tokyo Olympic Games and appreciated the Government’s move to purchase the broadcasting rights for free use by all television stations which had helped create social cohesion in society.   They were also briefed on the city’s latest state of play in innovation and technology (I&T) and the strategies in developing an international I&T hub with the central government’s support under the 14th Five-Year Plan.
