Hong Kong’s first “Safe Community Hub” officially opens (with photos)


     The “Safe Community Hub” (The Hub) run by the Inter-departmental Counter Terrorism Unit (ICTU) was officially opened today (October 27). It is the first experience centre with the theme of counter-terrorism (CT) in Hong Kong, aiming at further promoting the message of “Safe Community” to the public through a variety of interactive experiences and activities.

     The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations), Mr Chow Yat-ming, together with Deputy Secretary for Security, Ms Priscilla To, and directorate representatives of the other five disciplined services in ICTU, including the Deputy Commissioner of Customs and Excise (Control and Enforcement), Mr Chan Tsz-tat; the Deputy Commissioner of Correctional Services (Rehabilitation and Management), Dr Kenneth Leung; the Deputy Director of Immigration (Enforcement, Systems and Management), Mr Tai Chi-yuen; the Deputy Director of Fire Services (Public Safety and Corporate Strategy), Mr Derek Armstrong Chan, and the Acting Chief Pilot (Operations) of Government Flying Service, Mr Eddie Liu, officiated at the opening ceremony.

These interactive experiences include virtual reality (VR) / augmented reality (AR), motion detection, interactive hologram, and flight simulation, allowing participants to experience how to mitigate the risk of terrorist attacks and ensure personal and community safety. Various attractive photo-taking spots were set up to engage participants. ICTU hopes to convey key CT and safe community messages in an easy-to-understand and lively way with fun.

The World’s First AI-Created Digital Children’s Spokesperson ‘Uni’ is Ready to Amplify the Voices of Children Around the World

A manifesto and 40 ideas addressing the world’s challenges have now been sent from the world’s children to global leaders. That’s the summary of a gathering of 80 children aged 10-17, from 50 nationalities, who convened in Denmark at the Capital of Children in Billund for the third annual Children’s General Assembly Summit from September 19th to 21st.


The children have returned home, but their solutions continue to be assembled in the world’s first digital children’s spokesperson called “Uni”. Uni is an AI created as an amalgamation of 80 faces and voices of the participants of Children’s General Assembly and has helped amplify and deliver the messages of the world’s children. According to the Secretary General of Children’s General Assembly, Uni and the children’s way of approaching challenges can inspire on multiple levels.

“In this year’s Children’s General Assembly, children are trying to engage with contemporary tools like AI to devise a visual solution that can generate buzz and increase attention, providing them with a stronger unified and compelling voice. This is a symbol of the way children approach finding solutions to challenges, which far more politicians and businesses should take inspiration from,” says Charlotte Sahl-Madsen, Secretary General of Children’s General Assembly. She continues:

“Uni sets a fresh standard for efficiently collecting relevant insights from many people and cleverly consolidating them into a unified entity, which creates a foundation for concrete actions.”

40 ideas for decision-makers to address

Leading up to the September Summit, the children engaged in workshops and collaborative sessions. Through creative exercises, playful learning, and co-creation, they crafted a manifesto presented at the summit by Uni alongside the children, and an idea catalogue containing 40 ideas addressing global challenges. The ideas were mainly focused on STEAM, mental health, children’s safety, and awareness of the importance of children’s voices.

This is stated by the 80 participants in Children’s General Assembly in this year’s manifesto:

“From furthering education, fostering health and safety, and amplifying children’s voices, there’s a lot to be done. We’re not just children with dreams; we’re creative world citizens. It’s crucial for grown-ups to listen to us. We understand the challenges we face, and we have great ideas to make things better. Investing in children today means investing in a better world tomorrow.”

All materials, including the manifesto, idea catalogue and livestream from the September Summit were handed directly to the Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth for distribution to the UN General Assembly.

Hong Kong – Approval for first round of applications under Labour Importation Scheme for Transport Sector – Aviation Industry completed

Approval for first round of applications under Labour Importation Scheme for Transport Sector – Aviation Industry completed


     The approval process for the first round of applications under the Labour Importation Scheme for the Transport Sector – Aviation Industry (Scheme) has been completed. The Transport and Logistics Bureau (TLB) issued letters today (August 14) to all applicants on the application results.

     The application period for the first round of applications under the Scheme was from July 17 to 30. A total of 29 eligible companies submitted applications within the application period, involving 2 889 labour importation quotas covering all 10 job types under the Scheme. After assessment by the inter-departmental liaison group comprising representatives from the TLB, the Labour Department and the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK), the Permanent Secretary for Transport and Logistics approved the applications from 28 companies with a total of 2 841 quotas (45 per cent of the quota ceiling of 6 300), among which a few applications were not approved as they failed to meet one of the following basic requirements of the Scheme:
i. The job for which quotas are applied must fall into one of the 10 specified job types under the Scheme;

ii. The number of quotas applied for must be within the limit under the manning ratio requirement of full-time local staff and imported labour; and

iii. An applicant must have conducted local recruitment for the jobs for which quotas are applied. 

     One application was not approved as the wage intended to be offered was lower than the median wage of the corresponding job type. The results with breakdowns by job types in the first round of applications are at the Annex.

     A stakeholder consultative group, comprising the TLB, the AAHK, industry players and labour representatives, has earlier been set up to gauge the views of the relevant stakeholders on the implementation of the Scheme. During the first round of applications, the TLB and the AAHK have been maintaining close liaison with the group, including meeting with the representatives of trade unions this morning on the approval results. The TLB and the AAHK will continue to maintain communication with the consultative group and provide appropriate assistance to eligible applicants in order to ensure their understanding of the relevant requirements of the Scheme.

     A spokesman for the TLB said, “We hope that imported labour will receive training and work in Hong Kong soon, with a view to relieving the acute manpower shortage in the aviation industry and supporting the continual recovery of the industry. The TLB and the AAHK will continue to listen to the views of the group on matters relating to the Scheme and closely monitor its implementation.”

     The TLB will announce the details of the second round of applications under the Scheme in due course.

     The Chief Executive in Council endorsed in June 2023 the introduction of the Scheme to, on the prerequisite of safeguarding the employment of local labour, suitably allow the aviation sector to apply for importation of labour to fill vacancies for frontline non-supervisory positions under 10 specified job types with a quota ceiling of 6 300.
