Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui today expressed his gratitude to various listed issuers in Hong Kong for their support to the proposal of setting up a renminbi (RMB) stock trading counter.   Mr Hui stated that further to the help rendered by the Legislative Council Panel on Financial Affairs regarding the Government's proposed measures to promote the issuance and trading of RMB stocks in Hong Kong and enhance the trading mechanism, a number of listed issuers have also backed the proposal.   Such listed issuers will actively explore the feasibility of setting up a new RMB trading counter for their issued shares.   Mr Hui explained that listed issuers who indicated their support today include Hang Seng Index constituent stocks with promising turnover.   “Their participation is a vote of confidence to the development of RMB securities in Hong Kong, which will be conducive to our promotion work to other issuers, enabling Hong Kong to graduall

Rodent infestation rate falls

The rodent infestation rate for the first half of 2021 was 2.8%, lower than the 3.6% recorded for the second half of 2020, the Food & Environmental Hygiene Department announced today.   It added that the rate suggested rodent infestation in public areas is generally under control.   More than 30,000 rodents were collected or caught by the department during the same period.    The department said the anti-rodent operation’s second round will start in November, during which the designated target areas in several districts will be extended to cover more rodent black spots.   It will also allocate resources to strengthen the cleansing and rodent control work in such districts and take stringent enforcement actions.   As in previous years, the department rolled out a two-phase citywide anti-rodent campaign to encourage public participation, which was completed on September 10.   During the campaign, the department enhanced its inspections and rodent prevention and control measures in target areas including markets, municipal services buildings, hawker bazaars, typhoon shelters, lanes adjacent to food premises and other problematic spots and their peripheries.   The public can access the GeoInfo Map through the link on the department’s website for areas covered by individual survey locations and the latest rodent infestation rates.
