Last year the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region introduced a new format for the presentation of its policies and programmes to focus attention on the results the Government aims to deliver for the community.

This year's Policy Objective booklets are a result of the further evolution of the process. The major change is the integration of the previously separate Progress Report into the Policy Objective booklets. The Policy Objective booklets now present a comprehensive picture of what Government is seeking to achieve in respect of different policy areas, the progress achieved last year, and the plans to deliver results in the next 12 months.

This compendium is part of the 1999 Policy Address documents and provides a composite presentation of the 37 Policy Objectives booklets. Each Policy Objective contains the following key components -

  • Policy Objective
- sets out the overall results to be achieved by the relevant policies and programmes, and the progress made so far.
  • Key Result Areas
- describe the key elements to deliver the overall policy objective and the progress made to date.
  • Indicators
- specify how Government assesses performance in achieving results in the Key Result Areas.
  • Initiatives
- explain the specific measures taken or will be taken to deliver results in the Key Result Areas and the targets achieved or to be achieved.
