Northbound car travel scheme refined

The Transport Department today announced a refinement to the vehicle inspection arrangement for applications concerning Northbound Travel for Hong Kong Vehicles.   As agreed by Guangdong and Hong Kong authorities, from March 1, vehicle inspections will be exempted if the applicant and the vehicle remain unchanged when resubmitting applications for Northbound Travel for Hong Kong Vehicles within two years of passing the vehicle inspection and within the validity of the applicant’s electronic vehicle licence from Mainland authorities.   Currently, applicants for the travel scheme are required to conduct vehicle inspections at designated locations in Hong Kong.

Business leaders urged to vote

Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Algernon Yau today wrote to about 400 trade and industrial organisations in Hong Kong to call on business leaders to lead by example and cast their votes in the 2023 District Council (DC) Ordinary Election to be held on December 10.


Mr Yau noted that as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s first large-scale citywide election after reforming the DCs and improving the district governance system, it is of great significance.


He pointed out that the new district governance structure and the DCs are closely connected to the happiness and well-being of every citizen and relate to the good governance as well as the stability and prosperity of the Hong Kong SAR.


Mr Yau called on business leaders to motivate their members to actively participate in the election and jointly fulfil their civic duty, by putting in place flexible arrangements for employees at work on polling day to allow them to cast their votes.
