Secretary for Labor and Welfare, Mr. Matthew Cheung Kin-Chung, said the legislation of minimum wage was beneficial to the employment rate of women in Hong Kong as the figures increased last year.

The female labor force increased 4.6%, while the total employment rate of women also rose by 5.5% as a whole, far more than men. It’s reflected that women benefit more under the new legislation.

Cheung spoke for enhancing local economic power of women within the top level policy discussion session of 16th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) at San Francisco.

The session is the highlight of the summit, which is chaired by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and mainly focuses on improving the business environment for women to get the capital to run businesses on their own.

Cheung said that the Labor and Welfare Bureau has adopted a three-pronged strategy to improve the women’s economic rights and welfare, which includes education, provision of favorable conditions and capacity building for women so that they fully participate in the economy.

Mr. Cheung said that the diversity of public funding for vocational training, retraining has enhanced the quality of labor resources in Hong Kong. These training courses are market-oriented which are suitable for both genders.

He reiterated that the Government will keep providing a fair complete platform for the Hong Kong enterprises, including providing an equal chance for females to participate in economic activities
