「政策對話及參與」系列

香港人口政策的盲點

 

社區發展動力培育舉辦「政策對話及參與」系列,旨在促進公民社會溝通交流。今次我們邀請了立法會議員、應用社會科學系講師工黨副主席張超雄博士,作為本次活動的對話嘉賓。

 

口政策是政府施政的基石,關係到社會整體發展和各項政策的制訂和實施,但香港始終缺乏獨立自主的人口政策。1980年起,單程證制度實施,資格由內地審批,以家庭團圓為主,《基本法》確立有關制度,並延續至回歸後,由回歸至2012年底,共有762,584名內地居民持單程證來港。

 

港人與內地人通婚的情況日漸普遍,而優才計劃和投資移民等政策亦吸引不少內地居民來港定居,新移民及跨境學童的現象漸受社會關注。不過,香港政府始終無權自行審批定居者的申請資格,兩地的人口流動缺乏長遠的政策規範,有團體批評,政府在醫療、教育、福利等各方面,缺乏支援及規劃,致使出現所謂雙非或單非兒童的問題,更有市民聯署登廣告,要求爭取單程證審批權

Engagement Evening

with

Dr. Fernando Cheung Chiu Hung

Legislative Councillor and Vice Chairperson of the Labour Party

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.
