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

HK sees 794 COVID-19 cases

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 794 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 12 are imported and the rest are locally infected.   Among the new cases, 449 were detected by nucleic acid tests while 345 were identified via rapid antigen tests.   Since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, 1,184,447 people have contracted the virus, involving 8,897 deaths.   This afternoon, the Government made restriction-testing declarations to cover Kwai Ming House of Kwai Hong Court in Kwai Chung and Ching Ping House of Ching Ho Estate in Sheung Shui due to the viral load in sewage, information of relevant positive cases and other circumstantial factors. People in the restricted areas must undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.   Given that there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several areas of Sai Kung and Tai Po, the Home Affairs Department will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as cleansing workers and property management staff working in such areas.   As KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flight KL819 from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Cathay Pacific flight CX865 from Vancouver, Canada had four and three passengers on board who tested positive upon arrival, the Department of Health has prohibited the landing of their passenger aircraft in Hong Kong from Amsterdam and Vancouver respectively from tomorrow until next Saturday.    For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government’s dedicated webpage.
