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

2nd consumer voucher disbursed

The Government today announced that it disbursed via the four stored value facility (SVF) operators the second consumption voucher to about 5.5 million eligible people who had completed electronic registration by July 17.   About 17,000 eligible people who had resubmitted paper registration forms from August 16 to September 15 under the Government's special arrangement will also receive the first voucher today.   These people will successively receive SMS or mobile app push notifications concerning the voucher disbursement today.   Those who received the first consumption voucher on September 1 will get the second one on November 1.   For people who chose to collect the vouchers via AlipayHK, Tap & Go or WeChat Pay HK, the $3,000 vouchers have been directly injected into their specified SVF accounts.   The $3,000 second voucher has a validity period of three months and will expire together with the first $2,000 voucher on December 31. The unused voucher value will automatically become invalid after the expiry date.   Those who chose to collect the vouchers via Octopus cards may collect the vouchers by tapping the card at the Public Transport Fare Subsidy Scheme's subsidy collection points at MTR stations, light rail customer service centres, designated piers and public transport interchanges within three months from today.   They can also tap the card at designated convenience stores and supermarkets, Octopus service points or via the Octopus app.   The value of both the first and second voucher obtained via Octopus cards is $2,000. When the total eligible spending has reached $4,000 within the fourth to seventh month from the first voucher's disbursement, the $1,000 third voucher will be disbursed on the 16th day of the following month after the target spending has been achieved.   People who received the first voucher on August 1 are reminded to tap their Octopus cards to collect the vouchers by October 31 if they have not yet done so.   Visit the scheme's website or call 18 5000 for enquiries.   If people who resubmitted their paper registration forms from August 16 to September 15 have not received the SMS notification of their registration result and the voucher today, they may also call the hotline for follow-up.
