    This one will be interesting to watch.. can the govt pull this off while developing new Islands and the northern enclaves?

    Suddenly seeing "staying overnight" turning into a new thing that all govt secs will use to get their policies approved.

    The government on Wednesday said it plans to transform an area in northwestern New Territories into an eco-tourism destination similar to Singapore’s Sentosa, with outdoor adventure activities, a coastal conservation park and a waterfront performance venue.

    The Development Bureau said Lau Fau Shan – known for its seafood market – has more than 10 kilometres of coastline and valuable natural habitats.

    A spokeswoman for the bureau told reporters at a closed-door meeting that an area that is at least 60-hectares large will be listed as a Coastal Protection Park.

    “There will be hotels and resorts that offer diverse and enriching experiences to attract tourists, though It’s not a theme park,” she said, adding that its natural beauty could encourage people to stay overnight.

    I don't see how "an area that is at least 60-hectares large will be listed as a Coastal Protection Park" can go together with "there will be hotels and resorts"... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    87. The Government has been encouraging a wider use of electric vehicles. The first registration tax (FRT) concessions for electric vehicles, due to terminate at the end of March, will be extended for two years. Nevertheless, given the price reduction of electric vehicles and increasing availability of vehicle options, we will reduce the concessions by 40 per cent. Specifically, the maximum FRT concession for electric private cars (e‑PCs), granted under the "One‑for‑One Replacement" Scheme, will be adjusted to $172,500, whereas the concession ceiling for general e‑PCs will be lowered to $58,500. At the same time, e‑PCs valued at over $500,000 before tax will not be entitled to concessions under the "affordable users pay" principle. As for other types of electric vehicles, including electric commercial vehicles, electric motorcycles and electric motor tricycles, the FRT will continue to be waived in full over the next two years. The EEB will announce details in due course.
