The Yau Tsim Mong Shopping Festival is kicking off today (July 25). The Federation of Hong Kong, Kowloon and New Territories Traders Association and Yau Tsim Mong Charity Foundation plan from August 1 to October 20, where citizens spend more than 100 yuan on electronic products. Or get vaccinated to participate in a big lottery to promote community consumption, hoping to help the grassroots stallholders get through the plight.
Financial Secretary Chen Maobo likened the shopping festival to a "three-tiered hamburger", which is of great benefit to the public and retailers in all aspects.
Chen Maobo: Injecting consumer coupons into the economic system can help the local economy
The guests attending the launch ceremony included Financial Secretary Chen Maobo, Director of the Food and Health Bureau Chen Zhaoshi, Deputy Director of the Liaison Office Kowloon Department Wang Xiaoling, Director General of the Tourism Development Bureau Cheng Dingyi, Deputy Director of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department Huang Shuxian, Civil Affairs Commissioner Yu Jianqiang, Hong Kong Chen Jinrong, Chairman of the Federation of Nine New Territories Traders Associations.
Chen Maobo said that the shopping festival will boost the retail industry. The epidemic has been repeated for more than a year. Fortunately, the disease has been largely under control, but the customs has not been cleared, and tourists have not been able to arrive in Hong Kong, so the pressure on merchants has not been relieved.
Chen especially thanked the two organizers for specially arranging the lottery and consumer coupons to be carried out at the same time to achieve a superimposing effect.
He described it as a "three-tiered hamburger". First, he plans to benefit the public; second, to ensure that government investment stays in Hong Kong; and third, to promote the popularization of electronic payments in Hong Kong.
He also pointed out that since the consumer voucher program officially started accepting registration on July 4, public responses have been very enthusiastic. So far, more than 6.3 million registrations have been received, of which more than 5 million were completed electronically in the first two weeks. Register and you will receive the first 2,000 yuan electronic consumer voucher on August 1, which is the next Sunday, as scheduled. "At that time, I hope everyone can use this voucher to shop happily, buy a shirt, and change it. Home appliances, or a good meal, the most important thing is to "get it away." Injecting money into our economic system can help stimulate our local economy."
You can get a chance to draw a lottery with a purchase of 100 yuan or more. Double the chance to get an injection
Chen Jinrong said that most of the dealers are grassroots citizens, and the hawkers accompany the growth of the public. The atmosphere is not something that can be felt during online shopping. Yau Tsim Mong merchants' income sources are mainly tourists.
Under the epidemic, the business environment has been severely impacted, but the epidemic has been brought under control.
In order to cooperate with the government's distribution of $5,000 electronic consumer vouchers, the Federation of Hong Kong, Kowloon and New Territories Traders Associations and the Yau Tsim Mong Charity Fund organized the "Yau Tsim Mong Shopping Festival" and a lottery event, hoping to use the vouchers and revive the local economy.
Citizens who spend up to 100 yuan at designated merchants in the district will be given a chance to draw a lottery, while participants who use electronic spending or have received the new crown vaccine will get a double chance of the draw.
