Government has no intention to abolish zero-quota policy for "doubly non-permanent resident pregnant women"
     In response to media inquiries on the suggestion by a think-tank today (February 12) of allowing "doubly non-permanent resident pregnant women" (DNRP women) to give birth in Hong Kong, a Government spokesman said that there is no intention to relax or abolish the "zero-quota" policy for DNRP women, which was formulated by the current-term Government and has been implemented for a few years.

     The spokesman also pointed out that Hong Kong's gynecological, obstetric, pediatric and other medical services, as well as school places cannot cope with tens of thousands of extra babies being born every year. The shortage of manpower in Hong Kong and the ageing of population cannot be resolved by DNR babies.
