Labour Day Reception 2020 cancelled
***********************************
     In view of the latest developments of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Government announced today (March 27) that the Labour Day Reception 2020 scheduled for April 28 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre has been cancelled.
      
     "The Labour Day Reception is an annual event organised by the Government to pay tribute to the labour sector for the essential role it has played all along in promoting the development of Hong Kong. Upon careful consideration of the latest infection situation, the Government had to call off the reception this year to reduce social contact and the risk of virus transmission," a Government spokesman said.  

     ‚ÄčThe Government thanked the labour sector again for its significant contributions to the city's sustained development and will continue to take appropriate measures to support the sector so as to mitigate the negative impact of the epidemic on the labour market and employees.
