Lau Ming-wai, the vice chairman of Bauhinia Foundation Research Center, said that doubly non-permanent resident can solve Hong Kong's manpower demand problem.

"Why don't we make good use of them (doubly non-permanent resident)?" Lau said, on Tuesday at a university assembly. According to the report "Updated Hong Kong Labour Force Projections for 2013 to 2041" of Hong Kong Monthly Digest of Statistics, the overall Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR) will decrease to 49.5% in 2041. Lau noted that doubly non-permanent resident issue is already a fact, and government should consider how to let them contribute and become Hong Kong's manpower, because those parents are usually high-educated. He added that doubly non-permanent resident can help relieve the population ageing and low fertility rate in Hong Kong.

In response to the view of importation of labour, Lau pointed out that use importation of labour to solve short-term manpower demand problem is not encouraged. He said importation of labour is a contradictory issue, importing labour will affect local labour's benefit, but employers will transfer the cost to consumer if not importing labour.

The Bauhinia Foundation Research Centre is a privately funded independent public policy think tank. The organisation set up in March 2006, focusing on Hong Kong's socioeconomic well-being and long-term competitiveness. Its mission is "to promote the understanding of 'one country, two systems' arrangements in Hong Kong for public benefit." --115035 2014年3月18日 (二) 18:35 (UTC)
