Two grants approved for cyclone relief in Myanmar The government has approved two grants from the Disaster Relief Fund totalling HK$5.63 million for two aid agencies to undertake projects for cyclone victims in Myanmar. World Vision Hong Kong was granted HK$5 million, while the rest went to Medecins Sans Frontieres. 'To ensure that the money will be used for the designated purposes, the two relief agencies have been asked to submit evaluation reports and audited accounts on the use of the grants after the relief projects have been completed,' a government spokesman said yesterday. Athletes' medicine, health sciences centre launched The Hong Kong Jockey Club Sports Medicine and Health Sciences Centre was launched yesterday to prepare for the hosting of major sporting events and to support sports development and elite sports training. Established jointly by the Chinese University and Polytechnic University, the centre will offer professional support to the Olympic equestrian events in August, next year's East Asian Games in Hong Kong and the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou. It will also provide clinical, rehabilitation and performance-enhancement services to elite athletes from Hong Kong and the mainland. The Jockey Club donated HK$88.72 million to set up the centre and meet operating costs for the first three years. April surplus HK$1.8 billion The government recorded a surplus of HK$1.8 billion last month, the first month of the current financial year. The surplus was mainly due to the collection of salaries tax, profits tax and stamp duties, a government spokesman said. Revenue was HK$22.20 billion last month, and expenditure HK$20.36 billion. Fiscal reserves stood at HK$494.75 billion at the end of last month.
