HKTB eyes new scheme to boost vaccine drive

The Hong Kong Tourism Board will reward those who have taken their vaccine shots.

The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) said it is now working on a new programme that would reward individuals who participated in the government’s vaccination programme.

“The HKTB is now actively working on a new round of programme to reward the vaccinated and encourage the public to take the shots,” the HKTB said in a statement.

This is in line with the government’s “Early Vaccination for All” campaign that sought to speed up the vaccination rate to achieve herd immunity.

The new programme will offer Free Tours and Staycation Delights for those who have been vaccinated.

This also comes after the HKTB reported it fully-booked its “Spend-to-Redeem Free Tours programme.

“All quotas of the second batch of 55 itineraries in the new round of ‘Spend-to-Redeem Free Tours’ have been fully booked on the first day of registration,” it said, noting all 20,000 of the quotas were redeemed.

High-street shop vacancy rises to 16.5% in Q2 22
Amongst core districts, Tsim Sha Tsui had the biggest vacancy rate.   High-street shop vacancy rose 1.3 percentage points from Q122 to hit 16.5% in Q2 22, data from CBRE showed.   The increase in vacancy was likely due to some landlords, who are under limited financial pressure, opting to leave units vacant rather than renting them out.   This practice was most evident in Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok where vacancy rates were the highest, at 23.2% and 18.9%, respectively.   Whilst vacancy rose during the quarter, rents remained flat. According to CBRE, rents were unchanged from Q122 because “cash-rich landlords with strong holding power prevented some units from transacting at lower rents this quarter.”   In addition to rents being unchanged, leasing volume also increased in Q2, signalling an improvement in the retail property sector.   “Improved retailer sentiment underpinned an increase in transaction volume, although many deals signed this quarter involved short-term leases,” CBRE commented.
