Hong Kong police have arrested two people, including a learner driver, on suspicion of dangerous driving after a video posted online showed a car speeding past a school traffic marshal with a stop sign at a zebra crossing. The force said on Friday that the clip showed the white car was travelling along On Tin Street outside a primary school in Lam Tin when the incident took place at around 8.16am on Monday. “As the car approached a zebra crossing, it failed to comply with the instruction given by a school traffic marshal to stop,” police said. “It went across the zebra crossing at high speed, driving past the traffic marshal, and left the scene. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.” Dashcam video circulating online shows the presence of the traffic marshal on the zebra crossing, wearing an orange reflective vest and holding a stop sign.

【焦點新聞|香港競爭力 躍全球第五】 香港集中精力「拚經濟、拚發展」,優勢顯著。瑞士洛桑國際管理發展學院(IMD)昨日(18日)發表2024全球競爭力報告,香港全球排名第五,較去年上升兩位,重返世界五強,四個競爭力因素之中,「經濟表現」排名大幅改善,反映2023年的經濟復甦。 特區政府發言人表示,新一份年報繼續肯定香港是全球最具競爭力的經濟體之一,香港在「一國兩制」下,背靠祖國、聯通世界,將會繼續發揮好「超級聯繫人」和「超級增值人」的角色和功能,積極融入國家發展大局,讓經濟發展攀上更高的台階。 瑞士洛桑國際管理發展學院自1989年起發布全球競爭力報告,是國際上知名度和關注度較高的競爭力指標排名體系,報告綜合考慮「經濟表現」、「政府效率」、「營商效率」和「基礎建設」四個項目,並下設20個分項,對64個國家或地區進行排名。 最新一份報告顯示,前10名依序是新加坡、瑞士、丹麥、愛爾蘭、香港、瑞典、阿聯酋、中國台灣、荷蘭、挪威,美國排名第12,中國排名第14、韓國排名第20、日本則在第38名。 香港競爭力由去年第七上升至今年第五位。在評選的四個競爭力因素中,香港在「營商效率」和「基礎建設」的排名明顯上升,躋身在全球前十名內;「政府效率」排名亦高踞在全球前三名之列。「經濟表現」的排名有強勁升幅,反映去年的經濟復甦。 「國際貿易」「商業法規」排第一 分項因素方面,香港在「國際貿易」和「商業法規」排名全球第一,「稅務政策」第二位,「國際投資」、「基本基礎設施」第三位,而「金融」及「教育」亦位列前五名。不過,「物價」排名較後,位列第65名,並較去年跌一位。 報告指出,香港將持續面對地緣政治緊張局勢,展望香港未來必須把握多變的國際貿易形勢和國內的發展機遇,推進創新科技發展,促進綠色轉型。 政府發言人表示,新一份競爭力報告繼續肯定香港是全球最具競爭力的經濟體之一,香港會繼續發揮「超級聯繫人」和「超級增值人」角色和功能,堅定市場信心,帶動旅遊業、促進消費,鞏固經濟復甦勢頭;同時大力吸引世界各地的企業、資金和人才,積極推進金融、創科、貿易等優勢範疇建設,擁抱綠色轉型和數字經濟發展,持續擴大經濟容量、培育新增長點,為市民和企業創造更多、更好的發展機會。 高質人才和企業來港尋機遇 政務司司長陳國基認為,最新排名是對特區政府聯同本地以至外來人才和企業為香港謀發展、拚經濟的亮麗成果的肯定,在「搶人才、搶企業」的新策略下,世界各地的高質人才和策略企業來港尋找機遇。 財政司司長陳茂波表示,在港的外國企業、商會和國際機構,以至海外商界領袖都認同香港充滿活力、營商環境優良。香港面對外圍挑戰,經濟仍穩中向好。在中央的堅強領導、國家的堅實支持下,特區政府推出多項舉措鞏固,全方位提升在全球競爭力。香港發揮好「一國兩制」優勢和功能,把握好國家發展和國際環境轉變帶來的機遇,發展前景必定更亮麗。 商務及經濟發展局局長丘應樺引述數據指出,由去年至今,投資推廣署共協助600多間內地及海外企業來港開設或擴展業務,營運首年共帶來高達約800億元的直接投資,創造約7000個新增職位。去年,母公司在香港境外的駐港公司達9039間,回復至疫情前的高水平。「一國兩制」下,香港擁有與國際接軌的規管制度、實行普通法、簡單稅制及低稅制等優勢,為來自世界各地企業提供優越的營商環境,成為企業把握內地機遇和開拓國際市場的雙向門戶。 教育局局長蔡若蓮表示,香港在「教育」方面由去年第九位升至今年第四位,充分反映香港教育質素高,在教育同工努力和社會各界支持下持續進步。 香港聯通全球 發揮超級聯繫人角色 對於香港在《2024年世界競爭力年報》排名重返全球第五位,嶺南大學潘蘇通滬港經濟政策研究所所長何濼生昨日向《大公報》表示,香港擁有背靠祖國,「一國兩制」的優勢,近年大灣區內地城市的經濟發展蓬勃,對香港發展是如虎添翼,香港作為連接全球超級聯繫人的角色,可借助國際金融貿易中心的地位,更好發展創新科技事業。 Facebook

Beijing’s point man on Hong Kong affairs has “recognised” the work of the city’s environment bureau as he met its chief in the capital, reminding him that many of his tasks were “matters of concern to the people”. The Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office released a photo of the Thursday afternoon meeting between Director Xia Baolong and Secretary for Environment and Ecology Tse Chin-wan. The meeting came 1½ months after the Hong Kong government shelved a controversial waste-charging scheme following 20 years of deliberations and delays. Earlier in the day, Xia met Secretary for Justice Paul Lam Ting-kwok. Hours after Thursday’s exchange, the Hong Kong government said: “Director Xia said that many tasks of the Environment and Ecology Bureau are matters of concern to the people, and he fully recognised the bureau’s work.” Tse briefed Xia on the bureau’s progress on achieving carbon neutrality goals, green transition opportunities, environmental...

A Hong Kong kindergarten located near the border with mainland China has urged parents to keep a close eye on their children after a woman allegedly stalked one of its pupils in a nearby park. ELCHK Cheung Wah Kindergarten in Fanling said on Thursday it had issued a notice warning all parents about a woman suspected of following a K1 pupil. Some parents reported the woman “kept staring at and following one of the K1 children” while the pupil was playing in the park opposite Fanling Centre after school hours, the notice issued on Tuesday said. “Luckily, [the woman] was spotted and stopped by a parent in time before she left quietly with another man in the distance,” the notice said. “Parents are worried about a kidnapping syndicate in the area. Parents are advised to be extra careful when picking up and dropping off their children, and never let them...

【35+顛覆政權案|毛孟靜「後悔」 岑敖暉「反省」】 35+顛覆政權案中,14名被告經審訊後被裁定「串謀顛覆國家政權」罪成,另31人認罪,共45人罪成。法庭昨日開始聽取第四批被告求情,毛孟靜、何啟明、馮達浚、黃碧雲、劉澤鋒、岑敖暉當天完成求情,餘下王百羽、岑子杰、余慧明今日再訊。 戴耀廷曾就顛覆計劃諮詢毛孟靜 被告毛孟靜的代表律師承認毛是35+計劃的積極參與者,但非組織者,希望法庭以5至6年監禁作為量刑起點。惟法官李運騰指審訊期間有證供提及,首被告戴耀廷曾就顛覆計劃的合法性諮詢毛的意見,質疑毛不可能以「對法律無知」作求情理由。法官又質疑她曾推動「國際戰線」。 毛一方又強調,毛沒有對其他被告施壓,經過反省亦已深切明白否決預算案對公眾造成的潛在傷害,已感到後悔。毛又在親撰的求情信中為自己的參與道歉,希望可與丈夫共度「餘下時間」。其議助求情信則指,曾多次聽過毛說反對否決預算案。 被告馮達浚求情時,其代表律師一再強調馮是「拔萃仔」,又指馮已深切反省,不會再牽涉政治。法官關注馮的求情信中不見悔意,而是向「泛民」和家人致歉。 被告黃碧雲一方求情時表示,黃的角色次要,屬「其他參加者」,指黃從沒親身出席協調會議、選舉單張沒提無差別否決、沒簽署或支持《墨落無悔》。黃在初選論壇時被猛烈批評,在被逼到牆角的情形下講及無差別否決。呈堂的求情信亦指,黃被捲入2019年的對抗式政治中,實屬「受害人」。 另一被告岑敖暉在其親撰求情信中則承認,其政治參與的一些理念「並不是表面上那麼光采」。又稱經反省後,了解過往充滿憤怒,而仇恨不會達到任何目標。他承認否決財案會影響政府運作,從而危害國安,違背市民期望,冀出獄後早日回家陪伴妻子。 Facebook

“Homemakers aged 30 to 49 were inclined to enter into employment, but most of them are only looking for part-time jobs,” the board wrote. “People who have recently retired were less inclined to work, while young people who are neither in employment nor in education were the least motivated.” The study found that 36.1 per cent of young people who were not employed or studying had no plans to find jobs, with the prospect of good salary and benefits, work-from-home arrangements and flexible working hours only incentivising some to consider taking up work. Among recent retirees, 60.9 per cent expressed no interest in working. But some of the elderly residents said good salaries and perks, stress-free duties and support from jobseeker organisations could encourage them to work. The paper did not provide a detailed breakdown of the interviewee demographics. The Post has reached out to the organisation for more information....

【拜登是否應退選 美國會民主黨人難達共識】 當地時間9日,美國國會參眾兩院民主黨人分別舉行閉門會晤,未就是否支持現總統約瑟夫·拜登繼續競選連任達成共識。其中一些人力挺拜登,還有人對拜登勝選能力持觀望態度。 據多家外媒統計,迄今已有7名民主黨籍聯邦眾議員公開呼籲拜登「讓賢」。9日,首次有民主黨籍聯邦參議員提及拜登可能無法戰勝其競選對手、共和黨籍前總統唐納德·特朗普,共和黨甚至可能在國會改選後掌控參眾兩院。 按美國《華盛頓郵報》說法,尚未有民主黨籍聯邦參議員公開呼籲拜登退選,但一些人希望拜登證明自己有能力打敗特朗普。 截至目前,參眾兩院民主黨領袖查克·舒默和哈基姆·傑弗里斯一直支持拜登。據路透社報道,舒默9日在閉門午餐會後簡短回應記者追問,他說了3遍「我跟喬(指拜登)一頭」。 拜登競選團隊共同主席、聯邦參議員克里斯·孔斯則強調,總統已知悉議員們希望他多出席活動、多接受採訪。另一名資深聯邦參議員理乍得·布盧門撒爾承認一些民主黨人眼下不願拜登繼續競選,但他認為拜登會逐漸贏回這些人的信任。 眾議院民主黨人9日上午同樣舉行閉門會晤。按法新社說法,眾議院少數黨領袖傑弗里斯希望與同僚們商定,是否支持拜登出任總統候選人。《華盛頓郵報》稱,會晤並未形成共識,不少人認為是否退選應由拜登決定。 據報道,本周眾議院民主黨人呼籲拜登退選的聲勢有所減弱,主要原因是被稱作「眾議院良心」的國會黑人核心小組選擇支持拜登。而非洲裔選民群體是民主黨關鍵「票倉」。 只是,對拜登勝選能力的擔憂揮之不散。眾議院民主黨核心小組主席皮特·阿圭勒9日稱,「一致同意和團結不是一回事」,「讓我們看看新聞發布會、競選活動……因為這些都將有必要」。 拜登本人依然堅持競選。他已定於11日召開6月27日總統選舉辯論後的首場新聞發布會並接受自由提問,近期還向黨內批評者喊話稱,他們可在8月民主黨全國代表大會上挑戰他。 白宮新聞秘書卡里娜·讓-皮埃爾9日則重申,想就拜登是否退選之爭「翻篇」。 Facebook
