RMB stock trading backed

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

Sophia Chan attends WHO meeting

Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan today attended the online meeting of the 72nd session of the World Health Organization Regional Committee for the Western Pacific.        The meeting focused on the anti-epidemic work by members of the regional committee as well as other health-related issues including primary healthcare, use of traditional and complementary medicine and the health of future generations.        Prof Chan said that since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has implemented various anti-epidemic measures including border controls, social distancing, testing, contact tracing, quarantine and a community-wide vaccination programme.   “The Hong Kong SAR Government has responded promptly and successfully to four waves of the epidemic so far with the above measures. It is encouraging to see that Hong Kong has no local cases with unknown sources of infection for most of the days in the past few months and has basically achieved zero infection.   “As the epidemic situation in Hong Kong continues to remain stable, we have adopted a new direction in fighting the epidemic since April by adjusting various anti-epidemic measures with a vaccine bubble as the basis with a view to restoring our city to normality in a gradual and orderly manner."   Noting that Hong Kong will stay vigilant to cope with next wave of the epidemic, Prof Chan said the Hong Kong SAR Government will consolidate the experience gained, strengthen its current capacities and map out targeted and refined strategies.   Looking forward, the health chief said that it is important for Hong Kong and the international community to continue to press ahead with large-scale vaccination for public, particularly the elderly, to build an immune barrier for the community.   “On the other hand, as Hong Kong is gradually returning to normality, we would put greater focus and efforts on other priority areas in the health portfolio including strengthening primary healthcare and developing Chinese medicine,” she added.
