The portfolio of the Labour and Welfare Bureau encompasses a host of responsibilities that affect everyone in Hong Kong, from manpower planning to poverty alleviation and elderly care.
According to estimates from the Census and Statistics Department, one in every three Hong Kong residents will be elderly by 2036. In addition, a loss of 500,000 working people is predicted in the coming 50 years. This rapidly aging society and shrinking workforce are the two main challenges that the Labour and Welfare Bureau must deal with.
How will Secretary for Labour and Welfare the Hon Law Chi Kwong overcome the many social challenges facing Hong Kong? What are his views on attracting talent, and retirement protection?
The Secretary for Labour and Welfare will meet with members at our "Town Hall Forum Series" on 23 March to discuss these and other issues. Sign up today for this exclusive, closed-door forum and share your thoughts with Hong Kong's welfare chief.
