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

Mainland experts conclude HK visit

The Mainland epidemic prevention and control expert delegation today inspected local institutions and facilities related to anti-epidemic work on the last day of their visit to Hong Kong.   Chief Secretary John Lee said with the conclusion of the four-day visit, the second meeting on the anti-epidemic work of the Mainland and Hong Kong will be held in Shenzhen on November 25. Mr Lee will lead a delegation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to attend.   The delegation first visited a community pharmacy and a private clinic to understand the regulatory control for retailing medicines, the purchase of fever relief medicines by customers, as well as the triage and consultation arrangement in the clinic.   This was followed by a tour to a secondary school to ascertain class arrangements, vaccination and testing requirements in Hong Kong under the epidemic. The delegation also examined the school’s anti-epidemic facilities and social distancing measures.   Later in the day, the delegation dropped in on the Community Vaccination Centre at the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre to learn about the Hong Kong SAR Government's COVID-19 vaccination progress.   Chairing a working meeting to conclude the event, Mr Lee emphasised that the visit had created a very positive and constructive effect on the gradual and orderly resumption of quarantine-free travel between the Mainland and Hong Kong.   He added that it has helped to move a very important step towards the goal of resuming cross-boundary travel in an orderly manner.   He expressed gratitude to the State Council’s Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office and the National Health Commission (NHC) for organising the delegation to Hong Kong.   He also thanked the delegation members for their hard work of visiting different institutions and facilities in the past few days, during which experts and anti-epidemic frontline staff of both sides interacted and exchanged views.   Such exchanges enhance mutual understanding of the management of the epidemic situation and the control measures, he added.   Separately, during the visit, representatives of NHC’s big data office, the Innovation & Technology Bureau and the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer had in-depth exchanges and discussions on the design, operation and information security protection of the Hong Kong Health Code system.   They also discussed the preparation work of the interface between the Hong Kong Health Code and the Yuekang Code.   Having concluded their visit, the delegation departed Hong Kong in the afternoon.
