HK to prosper from Qianhai plan

(To watch the full media session with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The central government’s plan to expand Qianhai will further extend the business opportunities of Hong Kong’s professional services sector there, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said today.   Mrs Lam made the remarks ahead of an Executive Council meeting as she was speaking to reporters concerning yesterday's unveiling of the Plan for Comprehensive Deepening Reform & Opening Up of the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Co-operation Zone.   The plan includes an eightfold expansion of the co-operation zone which was established in 2010. The Chief Executive noted that more than 11,500 Hong Kong enterprises have established a foothold in Qianhai since its inception.   “There is a lot of investment from Hong Kong. There are youth entrepreneurship projects in Qianhai. And more recently, through special policies, Qianhai has opened up more professional services for Hong Kong people - whether it is in the construction, engineering, town planning, architecture, legal and other (sectors).   “So with this expansion of Qianhai from less than 15 sq km to over 120 sq km, it will, of course, give us a much greater hinterland that we will continue to provide our professional services in many years to come.”   Mrs Lam added that it stands to reason that such an expansion will result in a major boost to Hong Kong’s status as a financial hub.   “If Hong Kong prospers with an international financial centre and all these commercial developments on both sides of the Victoria Harbour, you could imagine how many opportunities it will bring to Hong Kong’s various sectors and professionals.”

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
