Hong Kong Lawmakers May Pass Bill on Diesel Vehicles Dec. 18

Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Hong Kong’s lawmakers are expected on Dec. 18 to pass a proposal to replace 80,000 diesel vehicles on the city’s roads by 2020, according to under secretary for the environment Christine Loh.

Funding for the program, expected to be at $1.5 billion, will be sought from the city’s Legislative Council when lawmakers return from the New Year break, Loh said in an e-mail.

“It is at roadside where Hong Kong people face the greatest air pollution health risk,” Loh said. “Over the course of the next four to five years, we expect to see significant emissions reduction improvement at roadside.”
