They reviewed opinions on a draft decision on a one-stop boundary control cooperation arrangement in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and a draft decision to extend a pilot program allowing farmers in selected areas to mortgage their land use rights and housing property rights.

Draft amendments to the laws on tendering and bidding and metrology were also reviewed.
