The HKSAR Government announced on 20 February 2020 that the special “work-from-home” arrangement for government employees will be extended until 1 March 2020 in order to reduce the risk of the spread of the novel coronavirus in the community.
Following the above special work arrangement, the Trade and Industry Department will operate at the business hours from 8:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. from Monday to Friday to provide essential and basic services. Frontline services will be open during the afore-said business hours but back end processing may take more time. The Support and Consultation Centre for SMEs (SUCCESS) will not be open to the public but applications for SME Export Marketing Fund will continue to be received.
We encourage submission of licensing and funding applications by email or by post as appropriate. For enquiries, please call the departmental enquiry hotline 2398 5649. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
