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

HK ranked freest economy again

The Government today welcomed the Fraser Institute's ranking of Hong Kong as the world's freest economy, saying the decision affirms the city's long-standing and steadfast commitment to building a free economy with a level playing field.   Hong Kong has held the top rank since the inception of the Fraser Institute's report. Among the latest report's five areas of assessment, the city continued to rank first in “Freedom to Trade Internationally” and “Regulation”.   In relation to the institute's unfair comments regarding Hong Kong's rule of law, the enactment of the National Security Law and Mainland intervention in Hong Kong's affairs, the Government stressed that under “one country, two systems”, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's trusted legal system remains as robust as ever.   The rule of law is a fundamental core value of Hong Kong and much cherished by the community. The Government has been fully committed to upholding Hong Kong's fine tradition of the rule of law and judicial independence.   The enactment of the National Security Law is for safeguarding national security, which is the legitimate right and duty of every state.   The National Security Law has clearly stipulated four categories of offences that endanger national security. It clearly sets out the elements of the offences, penalties, mitigation factors and other consequences. There is no question of law-abiding people inadvertently violating the law.   The Government noted it will continue to uphold Hong Kong's institutional strengths, including the rule of law and judicial independence, a free trade and investment regime, a simple and low tax system, a favourable business environment and an efficient and clean government.   “These strengths will continue to provide a conducive environment for businesses to thrive and to strengthen their competitiveness, enabling our economy to prosper,” it added.   As Hong Kong enjoys unique advantages and unlimited business opportunities, the Government has every confidence in its long-term economic development.
