Wong: More vehicles to be approved for Hengqin soon

Following the first Macau-licensed vehicle entering the neighbouring Chinese township of Hengqin on Tuesday, the city’s Secretary for Security, Wong Sio Chak, said the scheme for local vehicles to enter the Chinese city will be expanded in stages in consideration of a variety of factors such as the island’s capacity.
The Secretary added that the discussion about the second stage of the scheme will soon take place, affirming that later stages will soon be introduced. According to the official, some 10 local vehicles have been approved to enter Hengqin in the current stage, of which nine drove onto the Mainland island on Tuesday, the first day of implementation.
