Singapore’s Minister for Transport Ong Ye Kung said that the city-state has received a proposal from Hong Kong to re-open borders safely, saying it was studying the situation.

According to a statement in response to the Singapore-Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB), the Minister said that on Monday that city-state is very happy that Hong Kong has in recent weeks kept the pandemic under control, reports Xinhua news agency.

“This is a very positive development,” he added.

Singapore and Hong Kong agreed to launch designated flights under the ATB in November 2020 in an effort to resume cross-border travel and orderly restart economic activities.

But the launch of the ATB was later deferred due to worsened epidemic situation in Hong Kong.
