FS paves way to green, digital future

A number of initiatives and measures aimed at accelerating high-quality development were announced in today’s 2024-25 Budget, with the Government emphasising a move towards a green future and digitalisation.   Explaining that high-quality development spurs ongoing economic innovation and growth whilst conserving the natural environment, Financial Secretary Paul Chan said Hong Kong must pursue opportunities through leveraging its advantages under “one country, two systems”, namely those of enjoying strong support at a national level and being closely connected to other parts of the world.   He stressed that green development involves huge business opportunities and financing needs, as governments and businesses around the world pursue carbon neutrality and green transformation. In addition, he said digitalisation has become a new driving force for economic development, empowering enterprises to enhance efficiency, boost their competitiveness and achieve new growth.   Introdu

CE views polling, counting stations

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today inspected the main polling station and central counting station for the 2022 Chief Executive Election at the Convention & Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai to know more about the final stage of the preparatory work for the poll.   Accompanied by Secretary for Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang and Electoral Affairs Commission Chairman Barnabas Fung, Mrs Lam learnt about the set-up of the main polling station, epidemic prevention measures, security arrangements and counting procedures of the election during her visit.   She also gave encouragement to the electoral staff participating in rehearsal sessions there.   Mrs Lam said: “The 2022 Chief Executive Election was the third major election under the improved electoral system.   “It is vital that all electoral staff are well versed in their duties and procedures to ensure the smooth conduct of this election. I hope that every colleague will be fully committed to making this a historic election for Hong Kong.”   She added that the central government's improvement to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's electoral system has provided a robust safeguard for fully implementing the principle of "patriots administering Hong Kong".   Following the completion of the Election Committee Subsector Ordinary Elections and the Legislative Council General Election, the Government will, as in the past, spare no effort to ensure the Chief Executive Election will be conducted in a fair, open and honest manner efficiently.   Mrs Lam also appealed to Election Committee members to cast their votes tomorrow.
