Human Resources Planning Commission convenes sixth meeting
     The Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, chaired the sixth meeting of the Human Resources Planning Commission this afternoon (May 7).  

     At the meeting, members were briefed on the key findings of the Manpower Projection to 2027. Mr Cheung said, "In view of the imminent dwindling of the labour force, an assessment on the projected manpower resources balance in the future would help identify ways to replenish Hong Kong's manpower to sustain the long-term development of the city."

     The Manpower Projection is a macro-level study conducted from time to time by the Labour and Welfare Bureau in conjunction with the Census and Statistics Department and the Office of the Government Economist with a view to assessing the broad trends of Hong Kong's future manpower supply and requirements for the medium term. The latest study has covered a 10-year projection horizon up to 2027, with 2017 as the base year. The findings will be presented to the Manpower Panel of the Legislative Council this month.
