The Hong Kong Sevens tournament which kicked-off today has removed the requirement of face masks and COVID-19 vaccination proof.

The three-day competition, which ends April 2nd is expecting to attract international tourists and business travellers to revive Hong Kong’s economy and promote it as a cultural hub.
