HONG KONG: Australian Department of Foreign Affairs wrans ‘reconsider your need to remain’
With the new draconian security laws, China has enacted in Hong Kong, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trace (DFAT) is warning its citizens that this means an ‘increased risk of detention on vaguely defined national security grounds’.
DFAT has updated travel advice today (Thursday 9 July) advising that the new laws ‘could be interpreted broadly’.
‘Under the law, you could be deported or face possible transfer to mainland China for prosecution under mainland law’.Smartraveller.gov.au advice

So, let me sum that up for you – Do Not Travel to Hong Kong. If you are already there, you better behave yourself, or probably better still – Get Out!
‘The full extent of the law and how it will be applied is not yet clear. ‘
‘You could break the law without intending to. If you’re concerned about the new law, reconsider your need to remain in Hong Kong’Smartraveller.gov.au advice
The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.
It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.
This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.
Find. Next. Flight. Out.
