New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

Bogus advert alert issued

The Labour & Welfare Bureau today appealed to members of the public for heightened vigilance against deceptive advertisements purported to be interviews with the Secretary for Labour & Welfare.   The bureau clarified that it has never issued such advertisements and the Secretary for Labour & Welfare has never made the fictitious remarks in the fake interview.   Noting that there are some suspected phishing deceptive advertisements and websites on online news portals and in social media which carry the labour chief's name and news photos, the bureau said such advertisements lure users to click on them and take them to suspicious transaction platforms.   The public is urged not to visit any suspicious websites via those advertisements or provide personal information to unknown websites.   The incident has been reported to Police for investigation, the bureau added.
