Chief Executive Lee Ka-chao is leading a delegation to visit the Middle East. Today (7th) the Executive Council will be presided over by Chief Secretary for Administration Chen Guoji as acting chief executive.
Chen Guoji met with reporters before the meeting and summarized the situation after the first day of customs clearance yesterday.
280,000 people entered and exited yesterday
Chen Guoji said, "Hello Hong Kong (Hello Hong Kong)" and the comprehensive customs clearance with the mainland clearly send a message to the world that Hong Kong has fully returned to the international stage and has fully cleared customs with the mainland.
Chief Executive Lee Ka-chao is leading a delegation to visit the Middle East and has signed some memorandums or agreements, which I believe will help the economy.
In terms of customs clearance, the port has been fully opened, and the situation at Luohu was also outside yesterday, and the overall situation is good and smooth.
There were 280,000 people entering and exiting yesterday, including 220,000 at land ports, 64,000 at Luohu, 5.4 at Lok Ma Chau, 3.3 at the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, and 30,000 at Shenzhen Bay.
He believes that Saturday and Sunday are the biggest challenges, and he has instructed to provide the best transportation services, and to send additional manpower to assist in crossing the border.
There will also be special arrangements for cross-boundary students to go to school starting tomorrow, February 8. There will be special counter assistance. Primary schools and kindergartens will return to school on 22. Cross-boundary school buses have already made preparations.
Chen Guoji said that the flow of people at each port is small at the beginning, and then it will gradually increase, so the Liantang Xiangyuanwei Port is no exception, and the transportation is convenient, so I believe it will be welcomed.
As for the mainland health declaration form commonly known as the "black code", Chen Guoji said that he would discuss it with the mainland, but the mainland also has its own needs, and he dare not say when it can be cancelled. At present, there are people at the border to help fill out the form. I hope everyone can fill it out early , to avoid congestion at the gate.
He also said that the detection measures have been relaxed a lot, but they have not been completely completed, so some testing centers should be reserved for emergencies.
Reiterate that simple public housing land will not be changed in use
Chen Guoji also mentioned the consideration of simple public housing, saying that the supply of public housing in the next 10 years can meet the demand, but due to the problem of construction time, most of the completion will be concentrated in the next 5 years, and the first 5 years are relatively small.
The government wants to solve the housing needs of the public early, so it launched simple public housing under such circumstances.
The areas of public housing were originally used for other purposes. Generally, these lands will only be used for 5 years, and then they will be returned to their original purposes.
The government understands that citizens are concerned about transportation facilities, and the government promises to deal with it well.
As for the concern about property prices being affected, Chen Guoji said that he has different considerations, but he must understand that people living in subdivided flats are in urgent need of government help, and he believes that everyone should be willing to help them. I believe that if everyone thinks this way, other problems can be easily solved. Bird House The Secretary of the Bureau will also continue to explain to the community.
The rent of the simple public housing is several thousand yuan lower than the market price. Chen Guoji said that this money is very helpful to them, and the living environment must be greatly improved, and it must be helpful to children. These social values cannot be measured. Please support the simple public housing housing this large-scale social engineering project.
He reiterated that he would not change the land use. If it took a few years to let the grassroots go upstairs, it would be a good thing for the whole society. He hoped that everyone would display the spirit of mutual assistance and mutual understanding.
Sometimes people criticize, Hong Kong is an international city, such an advanced city, why do some people live in such an unsatisfactory environment?
