CE mourns Tong Wai-ki

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Hong Kong Taoist Association Chairman Tong Wai-ki.   She said Mr Tong was held in high regard, adding that he had been committed to promoting the Taoist religion and Chinese culture and actively participated in social services and charitable activities, making significant contributions over the years.   He was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star in 2013.   "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Tong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and the Taoist community," Mrs Lam noted.   Acting Secretary for Home Affairs Patrick Nip also expressed deep condolences over the passing of Mr Tong.   He commended Mr Tong for dedicating his life in promoting the Taoist religion and uniting the Taoist community while actively participating in charitable services and talent nurturing. http://dlvr.it/SHNxxJ

Rent concession period extended

The Housing Authority's Commercial Properties Committee today approved an extension of the 75% rent concession for eligible non-domestic tenants or licensees for another six months from October 1.   The move ties in with the Government's latest relief measures to sustain the support for businesses and individual sectors as announced by Financial Secretary on August 25.   During this rent concession period, the eligible non-domestic tenants or licensees may continue to apply for concession in full for the days during which their operations at the premises concerned have to be closed under the Government’s anti-epidemic regulations and directions.   To ensure prudent use of resources, the committee decided that supermarkets and superstores would be subject to tenants' application and proof of sales drop in this round of rent concession.   If the tenants of supermarkets or superstores suffer a sales drop during the extended rent concession period compared to that of the same period in the preceding year, concession at the same percentage will be provided to them upon application and production of sales drop proof, capped at 75%.   Eligible tenants or licensees of about 2,500 retail and some 3,300 factory premises, about 70 advertising signboards, around 40 tenancies of bus kiosks and about 4,200 carpark users will benefit from this round of rent concession.   The rent the Housing Authority has foregone for this round of extension is estimated to be around $660 million, while the total rent foregone by it from October 2019 to March 2022 is around $ 2.946 billion.
