Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region John Lee Ka-chiu on Tuesday said the first day of the "0 3" quarantine-free "medical surveillance" system for new arrivals went generally smoothly, and that the city's social and economic activities are gradually resuming.

At a critical time when developing countries face severe challenges in achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, Wang called for greater efforts to push forward the initiative that aims to support developing countries in poverty alleviation, food security, COVID-19 response, climate change and other issues.
