  • Hong Kong’s welfare chief has admitted that there will inevitably be some “hiccups” when what is effectively an 800-room hotel at a government-run quarantine centre opens its doors next week to foreign domestic helpers arriving in the city.
  • Citing the government’s lack of experience in running any kind of hotel, let alone one it had only a month to prepare, Secretary for Labour and Welfare Law Chi-kwong said on Saturday that some setbacks were unavoidable.
