(Question: I think Lau’s refusal to comment on his father Lau Luen-hung’s conviction is far more important than his opinion on HK’s population issues. However, you’ve mentioned before “Declining to comment on anything is not a strong lead”. Please advise.”)


By Ma Wai Shan | Tuesday, 18 March 2014


Lau Ming-wai, new Chairman of Chinese Estates and Vice Chairman of Bauhinia Foundation Research Center, said the Hong Kong government should utilize the benefits of non-resident parents in a bid to alleviate labor shortage. He did not comment on his father Joseph Lau Luen-hung’s jail sentence after bribery verdict.


The center suggested the government face the social welfare issues raised by non-resident parents in 2008 but received a lukewarm response.


Speaking in Hong Kong Shue Yan University this afternoon, Lau pointed out that non-resident parents, mostly mainlanders, are generally affluent and well-educated, making them valuable assets to Hong Kong.


Lau suggested the government follow England, America and German’s example, provide these parents with incentives such as granting the right of abode to make good use of their skills, capital and create more jobs.


“Why not turn the non-local birth problem into an opportunity if we can’t avoid it anyway?” Lau expressed.


Making his first public appearance as the Chairman and Acting CEO of Chinese Estates, Lau declined to comment on personnel changes of the company. He added that latest announcement will be made through HKEx and the company website.


Lau also refused to answer questions about his father Joseph Lau Luen-hung’s prison sentence.


The billionaire tycoon was found guilty of bribery and money laundering charges in Macau on 14 March.
