Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor attended the Chief Executive's question and answer session in the Legislative Council this morning (26). Members of the establishment will ask questions about tomorrow's Lantau Island, the goal of finding land and building houses, epidemic prevention measures, and promoting the integration of the Greater Bay Area.

The only non-incorporated member of Parliament asked Chen Peiran concerned about imported cases

[12:04] Chen Peiran in the medical field is concerned about the issue of "zeroing out" the epidemic, and believes that the goal of zero local cases can only be achieved by targeting imported cases. In the past, imported cases exempted from quarantine have caused local outbreaks.

Lam Cheng responded by saying that a comprehensive review of how to improve epidemic prevention loopholes is underway, and the government will sort out documents as soon as possible for members to review.

However, she believes that only relying on "foreign defense import" may not guarantee the safety of the epidemic 100%, and emphasized that the most important thing is to ensure that the epidemic rebounds.

[11:58] Economic Pakatan Harapan Lin Jianfeng pointed out that the "policy address" is comprehensive and beneficial to the development of Hong Kong in the short and medium term. He also asked when it can be "cleared" because the failure to clear customs will affect business.

He mentioned that Hong Kong is facing the external and internal problems of the epidemic. Even if the chief executive is "excellent than Superman" and "good enough", he asked her "whether she can do it herself."

He pointed out that although the chief executive often said that special matters are handled specially, but "you are not anxious for them," he asked how the Hong Kong government can implement a closer system to monitor the work of each department.

Lam Cheng responded that "governance can be improved, and implementation can be speeded up." He thinks that the Secretary is working hard but can always do better, and she will constantly urge.

Lam Cheng emphasized that "you cannot rely on people, you must rely on the system", but she will personally supervise in different areas, and will continue no matter how much time she spends. She said with a smile that the peace of the Parliament "helped me a lot", if the Legislative Council is not today's , She will not have a measure to "remove the double ad valorem stamp duty on non-residential properties". As the chief executive, she will issue a four-month public income protection order, which will take effect immediately today.

She said that sometimes good policies can't be achieved because some people don't cooperate.

Lin Jianfeng later asked when the vaccine would arrive in Hong Kong. Carrie Lam pointed out that it would be difficult for any government to hand over timetables and roadmaps. The most important thing is to conduct accurate virus testing and implement epidemic prevention disciplines. For example, everyone observes discipline, does not dance, removes masks, or arrives There will be no big outbreak if there are many people waiting.

After the general resignation of the democrats, the question-and-answer meeting was almost exclusively questioned by the establishment, and the only non-organization was Chen Peiran in the medical field.

Lin Zheng: Compulsory testing is difficult to implement

She questioned the purpose of compulsory national testing, thinking that it is very difficult in today's situation and will not achieve the expected results.

Actively research the introduction of overseas doctors

He pointed out that the number of doctors in Hong Kong is seriously insufficient and the waiting time has reached a record high. He is concerned about whether the government can introduce overseas doctors. , Should not be obstructed by the Medical Council.

Lam Cheng responded that she would study the introduction of overseas doctors very seriously and actively. She personally supports the introduction of doctors. She is consistent with the position of Members. She has the determination and hopes to consider the welfare of the public, and hopes that Hong Kong people trained overseas can return to Hong Kong to practice.

Lam Cheng also mentioned that she is very concerned about the special learning needs of pre-school children. Among them, the pre-school plan for school visits will increase to 8,000 this year and 10,000 in two years. However, the bottleneck is the shortage of pediatricians.

Lin Zheng responded that the current government is first concerned about the transitional housing problem. She pointed out that it involves many areas, including providing cash allowances for low-income households. Applications will be accepted from the middle of next year and distributed in July.

She is also concerned that the provision of cash allowances may lead to incentives for landlords to increase rent, so a balance must be struck.
