Government extends term of Commission on Children
     The Government announced today (May 5) the extension of the term of the Commission on Children for seven months from June 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022.
     The Commission on Children was established on June 1, 2018, and its major functions are to develop policies, set strategies and priorities related to the development and advancement of children, and oversee the implementation of relevant policies and services, as well as promote children's rights and fund public educational projects.
     A spokesman for the Labour and Welfare Bureau said that an extension of the term of the Commission on Children for seven months would allow sufficient time for the new-term Government to consider the future mode of operation and membership composition of the Commission. In the past four years, the Commission and its four Working Groups have fully collaborated with the current-term Government on the pro-child principle and policy objective. The Government expressed gratitude to members for their efforts and fully acknowledged their accomplishments.
