HONG KONG (Reuters) – The Hong Kong government said on Thursday that it and the Singapore government decided not to further pursue a bilateral air travel bubble due to the differences in the anti-epidemic strategies currently adopted by the two places.

“Hong Kong and Singapore remained committed to facilitating connectivity between the two places and would continue to maintain dialogue and share experiences in this respect,” the governement spokesman said in a statement.
