Policy Address

Combating Inter-generational Poverty

53.       Education is fundamental to alleviating inter-generational poverty.  Good education helps enhance the quality of our next generation and raise their competitiveness in a knowledge-based society, enabling them to improve living standards for themselves and their families.  We will continue to devote substantial resources to education.  I will talk more about this later.

54.       We are particularly concerned about the development needs of children from low-income families.  The Government has launched a number of projects under the Child Development Fund to foster the personal development of underprivileged children.  A subsidy for internet access charges and other measures were announced in this year's Budget.  When preparing his coming Budget, the Financial Secretary will consider further measures to cater for the needs of these children.
