Youth Matters
Supporting Youth
Employment opportunities
In his last Policy Address, the Chief Executive made special reference to youth development. Focusing primarily on training and employment initiatives, he mentioned industries as diverse as creative media and aviation. The Federation has long called for programmes that stress innovation, creativity and supporting an entrepreneurial ecosystem for young people.

Anything that seriously nurtures positive young people while offering practical and constructive support is what Hong Kong needs. As we begin a new year, the Federation will continue to encourage young people to take up all opportunities for their future.

Please don't hesitate to call 3755 7101, Ms Brenda Yip in the Partnership Office to discuss ideas.
