Lunch with members of Junior Chamber International Hong Kong

Last Friday, I invited more than 10 representatives of Junior Chamber International Hong Kong to lunch at Government House to exchange views with them on the future economic and social development of Hong Kong.

Most of my young guests come from the business and professional sectors, and many of them work in small and medium-sized enterprises or run their own businesses. Since they all have experience in organising community and charitable activities, we clicked straight away and had a congenial talk.

More and more young local people hold university degrees or professional qualifications. This is good. But if the local economy is sluggish, or if they fail to seize the opportunities for development outside Hong Kong, our young people may feel trapped in Hong Kong with no way out.

If our people do not go out of Hong Kong to explore the opportunities available, there will be no horizontal mobility. Without horizontal mobility, there will be no upward mobility.

How can we help young people develop their careers outside Hong Kong? The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government is always ready to listen to what young people think about this.
