Missing Links in HK Population Policy
Engagement Evening, the public engagement series organized by Community Development Initiative, is honored to have the Dr. Fernando Cheung Chiu Hung, Legislative Councillor and Vice Chairperson of the Labour Party, to be our keynote speaker.
Population policy is fundamental to government administration as it is highly related to all kinds of policy implementation and social development. However, Hong Kong does not have an independent population policy. Since 1980s, the one-way permit is issued by the mainland authority to allow residents of mainland China to leave the mainland permanently and settle in HK primarily for family union. The permit is endorsed by the Basic Law. From 1997-2012, there were 762 584 mainland residents settled in HK.
It becomes more and more common that HK people get married with mainland residents; Admission Scheme for Mainland Talents and Professionals and Capital Investment Entrant Scheme have also attracted many mainland residents to settle in HK. The phenomenon of new immigrants and cross-border students has become issues of concern. However, HK government does not have the jurisdiction to access the status of the applicants and there is no long-term policy concerning population flow across the borders. It is criticized that the government does not have a good planning on education, welfare and medical provision in the absence of a long-term population policy.
