Vetting work of Retail Sector Subsidy Scheme completed
     A Government spokesman said today (June 8) that the vetting work of the Retail Sector Subsidy Scheme under the first round of the Anti-epidemic Fund has been completed. The Government has notified all of the approximately 93 000 applicants on the vetting results.

     About $5 billion of subsidies have been approved so far for nearly 62 000 eligible retailers. The Government is now processing some appeal cases. It is expected that some more applications would be approved after review.
     The Scheme's telephone hotline (1836 111) will cease operation at 6pm this Friday (June 12), and the enquiry email box of the Scheme (enquiry@retailsubsidy.hk) will continue to operate until June 30 (Tuesday). If applicants have any questions on the Scheme, they may send an email to enquiry@retailsubsidy.hk.
