Policy Address

D. Progressive Society

81.       The progress of a society is measured not just by its affluence, but also by its core values, which include kindness, care for others, mutual support, civic-mindedness and respect for traditional values.

Family Values

82.       Many social problems, including juvenile drug abuse, prostitution and the neglect of elderly people and children, can be traced back to the family. Better family relationships mean fewer social problems. I will ask the Family Council to focus on these problems and find new policy options to alleviate them at the family level. The Family Council will launch a Happy Family Campaign to promote family core values. Its activities include liaising with stakeholders to establish an inter-disciplinary and interactive information and support network.
