     "The Chief Executive has stated in his election manifesto that a long-term housing strategy will be formulated. The Government has set up a two-tier institutional framework for the long-term housing strategy. The Steering Committee, chaired by the Secretary for Transport and Housing and comprising key stakeholders from different sectors, is established to have an overview and offer advice on various housing aspects and initiatives under the long-term housing strategy. An inter-departmental Working Group, comprising relevant government bureaux and departments, is set up under the Steering Committee," a spokesman for the Transport and Housing Bureau said.

     The Steering Committee will review the changing housing needs and priorities of the community, and recommend measures to address these housing needs. It will also look at housing demand for both public and private sectors, advise on the current policies and practices, and make appropriate recommendations to ensure that the policies and practices contribute effectively to the policy objectives and priorities of the Chief Executive.

     "The preliminary meeting of the Working Group has already been held on September 5, while the Steering Committee will also have its first meeting and commence work in early October this year. We anticipate that the work report and consultation document of the long-term housing strategy will be published in the second half of next year," the spokesman added.
