"Hong Kong 2016" goes on sale today


Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Government's latest Yearbook, "Hong Kong 2016", went on sale today (July 12).
 
     The publication is an invaluable source of information about Hong Kong, covering government policy and activities along with an overview of life and developments in 2016.
 
     There is also a wealth of facts and figures, including more than 40 statistical tables and a map on the inside back cover showing land use in the territory.
 
     The 22 chapters feature Hong Kong's constitution and legal system, history, financial and monetary affairs, health, housing and environmental hygiene, among many other topics. A new chapter starting in this edition reports on the Government's policies and progress in innovation and technology.
 
     On the front cover is T·Park in Tuen Mun, Hong Kong's first self-sustained sludge treatment facility. T·Park incinerates de-watered sewage sludge from sewage treatment plants, hence reducing by 90 per cent the volume of such waste to be disposed of at landfills.

As a waste-to-energy facility, it also generates electricity for on-site operational needs and exports surplus electricity to the public power grid.
 
     Aside from the front cover photo, this edition offers 13 photo sections comprising 128 images about events, people and places in Hong Kong.
