SCED views operation of food trucks in Australia

     The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Gregory So, made a stopover in Sydney today (August 15, Sydney time) to view the operation of food trucks in the city before concluding his visit to Australia.

     Accompanied by the Commissioner for Tourism, Miss Cathy Chu, Mr So paid a visit to food trucks in Sydney and talked to the operators to learn more about their day-to-day operation.
