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

Early discharge criteria clarified

Unvaccinated people or those who have only received one COVID-19 vaccine dose are not eligible for early discharge from isolation and home quarantine, the Government clarified today.   This is not applicable to household contacts of close contacts undergoing a four-day home quarantine under the StayHomeSafe Scheme.   Elaborating on the arrangement, the Government said that people who have not been vaccinated or only had one jab, no matter whether they are patients staying in community isolation facilities (CIFs), pending admission to hospitals or isolation facilities or close contacts under home quarantine, are required to undergo 14 days of medical surveillance at a CIF or at home. They must also fulfil relevant testing requirements before being considered for completion of isolation or home quarantine.   Meanwhile, if patients at CIFs and individuals pending admission have received at least two vaccine doses, they may leave the CIF or home on the seventh day provided they have obtained negative rapid antigen test results on both the sixth and seventh days after testing positive.   However, if they obtain at least one positive test result during these two days, they may conduct rapid antigen tests on a daily basis and immediately leave after getting negative test results for two successive days.   Close contacts who have received at least two vaccine doses follow similar requirements, the Government added.   Additionally, close contacts who have had two jabs may go about their daily activities once they satisfy the above criteria and do not have to wait for household members to recover from COVID-19 or complete their quarantine.
