Government engages public in formulating recommendations for new Hong Kong Rehabilitation Programme Plan
     The Labour and Welfare Bureau today (November 19) announced that the Rehabilitation Advisory Committee (RAC) will launch the second stage (Formulation of Recommendations Stage) of the public consultation exercise to seek views from members of the public on the formulation of a new Hong Kong Rehabilitation Programme Plan (RPP) through a series of public engagement activities.

     With the assistance of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University Consulting Team, the RAC has completed the first stage (Scoping Stage) of the public consultation exercise to collect stakeholders' opinions for defining the scope of the new RPP. More than 1 000 persons participated in the public consultation exercise and 70 written submissions were received by the Consulting Team during the period. The Report on Scoping Stage prepared by the Consulting Team has been uploaded to its website (www.rs.polyu.edu.hk/rpp) for public viewing.

     A spokesman for the Labour and Welfare Bureau said, "The Consulting Team will hold four public consultation sessions in early December 2018 and 15 seminars in the first quarter of 2019 to collect views from stakeholders for the priority issues. The five Task Forces under the RAC will also host separate stakeholder meetings, with a view to mapping out the strategic directions and recommendations."
