Hong Kong leader expects mainland China border to reopen in Feb

Opening the border with mainland China was a priority for Lam.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Friday she expected the border with mainland China to largely reopen in February next year as the two governments stick to their zero COVID-19 policies, public broadcaster RTHK reported.

Despite barely recording any local coronavirus cases in recent months, authorities in the global financial hub have tightened up quarantine and patient discharge rules to convince Beijing to allow cross-border travel.

Hong Kong is following Beijing's lead in retaining strict travel curbs, in contrast to a global trend of opening up and living with the coronavirus.

RTHK said Lam's remarks were made during a forum about China's Greater Bay Area.

Lam has repeatedly said opening the border with mainland China, Hong Kong's main source of growth, was her priority.
