Transcript of remarks by SLW on Construction Industry Recruitment Centre

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, on the Labour Department's Construction Industry Recruitment Centre after officiating at the Centre's opening today (January 11):

     This Construction Industry Recruitment Centre has a special function, in the particular sense that we really hope to bring about a culture change in recruitment and also in the employment pattern (of the construction industry) because up to now, they basically rely on personal connections. Now, we are talking about providing a platform, providing information and a database, and also providing a venue for employers and employees to get together particularly for recruitment purposes. So, we hope that this will provide a very useful platform. Also, this particular Centre is housed in the same building as the CIC (Construction Industry Council), which provides workers with training and also value-added services. So, we hope that this will provide a very convenient one-stop integrated service point for those looking for employment in the particular sector here. Also, we are targeting at ethnic minorities - that's why we will provide special services for them. We will target them and reach out to them in their particular areas.

(Please also refer to the Chinese portion of the transcript.)
