Govt promises new clean air blueprint


The government has promised to come up with a clear blueprint for tackling Hong Kong’s air pollution before the end of the year.

This comes after the Director of Audit criticised the government for its record to date, saying Hong Kong had been unable to achieve air quality objectives set a quarter of a century ago, and that the new objectives would not adequately protect public health.

The Secretary for the Environment, Wong Kam-sing, told lawmakers that the government hopes to set out a roadmap and timetable for achieving Hong Kong’s new air quality objectives as soon as possible.

He said there would be clearer targets.
