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 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.”
