Attaching Importance to the Middle Class

72. The Government recognises the difficulties faced by the middle class. We understand their grievances, discontent and feelings of uncertainty. We appreciate their values and beliefs, as well as their aspiration to participate in politics. We believe that only a stable and fully confident middle class will guarantee the stability and prosperity of Hong Kong. We will strive to involve more middle class people in political affairs.

73. We will appoint more middle class managers and professionals into the Government's advisory boards and committees. We will interact more with political, social, cultural, religious and professional bodies whose core members come from the middle class. We will foster a closer partnership with academia and tap their expertise and research findings for the policy-making process.
