HK chief executive held travel bubble discussions with Macau

Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam said that she had discussed the establishment of a possible travel bubble with Macau at the Boao Forum earlier this month. 

Lam said that following the forum, her administration began discussing how such an arrangement could be implemented. 

“The biggest problem is that the mainland and Macau have almost fully cleared customs. Therefore we need to find out a way in which Hong Kong residents that use this arrangement to enter Macau without quarantine do not go to mainland China through Macau,” said Lam. 

However, Macau authorities earlier this week said they had not negotiated any travel bubbles with other countries or regions. 

In related news, early flight tickets between Hong Kong and Singapore have reportedly been sold out. Flights are capped to one a day, with a maximum capacity of 200 passengers each way.
