Policy Address

Cyber Youth Support

142.     In view of the changing lifestyle of youths, we will introduce pilot Cyber Youth Outreach Projects with funding support from the Lotteries Fund.  Under these projects, we will reach out through the Internet to youths in need, particularly those identified as at-risk or hidden, for timely support services to them.

Anti-drug Initiatives

143.     Our territory-wide campaign against drug abuse in the past two years has garnered community support.  The youth drug abuse problem has shown some signs of easing.  But we must not be complacent.

144.     Schools are an important platform for fighting drugs. The Trial Scheme on School Drug Testing in Tai Po launched last year ran smoothly.  We have decided to extend the scheme for one year in order to gain further practical experience.  An evaluation research will soon be completed.  In light of its recommendations, we will engage stakeholders to map out the way forward for school drug testing.  We also plan to step up school social work services in all secondary schools by a 20% increase in manpower.  The fight against drug abuse is a protracted war.  The Government will continue its anti-drug efforts using a five-pronged approach, spanning social mobilisation, community support, law enforcement, treatment and drug testing.
