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

Encourage staff to get vaccinated: CE

I do not think we need to provide sort of tangible incentives for the private sector.   “It is to their own benefit to require their employees to be vaccinated so that Hong Kong could build up this defence as soon as possible to enable the Government to decide on more relaxations that they want to see - relaxations in the form of allowing more people or tourists to come in, relaxation in terms of the social distancing measures - so that they could do more business.   “So there is a common objective between the business world and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government to increase the vaccination rate.   “But if they want a very strong and clear message from the Government, I am now giving that very strong signal and message that they should move into the situation of requiring their employees to be vaccinated.”   Mrs Lam added that for employees who are unable to or refuse to get vaccinated, they should at least be required to produce a negative COVID-19 test result on a regular basis.
