HONG KONG – To further stimulate consumption and bring more happiness to society, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government will launch the “Happy Hong Kong” campaign, providing citizens with diverse choices in amusements and food events.
The campaign will kick off with the Movie Day activity, when residents, with the support of the Hong Kong Theatres Association, can watch films for HK$30 ($3.82) at any theatre in the city on Saturday.
Despite the fact that we have seen a strong momentum of economic recovery since the full resumption of normal travel and activities, there is still a way to go to consolidate the revival impetus.

Free entrance to a series of gourmet bazaars will be offered through the end of June with the most recent one taking place this weekend at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
From June 3 to 24, Ocean Park will host the Chill All Night event, offering free admission to 5,000 visitors each night. Meanwhile, the SAR government will introduce the Harbour Chill Carnival at Victoria Harbour with performances and light shows in July and August.
In addition to entertainment activities, the campaign also includes sports and science events. Manchester United Under-16 soccer team will play an exhibition match at Mong Kok Stadium in August. A bazaar will be held the same month to showcase cutting-edge technology products.
“Despite the fact that we have seen a strong momentum of economic recovery since the full resumption of normal travel and activities, there is still a way to go to consolidate the revival impetus,” Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po said at a news conference on Monday afternoon, adding that the SAR government will make every effort to seize the opportunities created to spark consumption and inject a happy spirit into the community.
Chan was joined by Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism Kevin Yeung Yun-hung, Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs Alice Mak Mei-kuen, and Executive Director of the Hong Kong Tourism Board Dane Cheng Ting-yat.
