The Government today announced that the Food Truck Pilot Scheme will be extended for another year up to February 2, 2022.
The decision was made after evaluating the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on food truck operations and the scheme’s development so far.
The Tourism Commission said food truck operations have been seriously affected as many operating venues have been closed for a long time for the implementation of social distancing measures since the pandemic’s outbreak early this year.
By extending the scheme for another year, food trucks can continue to operate.
The commission has sought the agreement in principle from most of the management of the existing operating venues to continue providing food truck pitches.
It will continue to arrange for food trucks to operate at the designated mega events organised by the Tourism Board.
The two-year scheme was launched on February 2017 and extended for two more years till February 2021, to add fun and vibrancy to Hong Kong’s tourist attractions.
