Lau Ming-wai, representing the Bauhinia Foundation Research Center, said the government should do more to fully utilize the labour forces of migrants to Hong Kong. by Tina Lu


Lau Ming-wai, Vice Chairman the Bauhinia Foundation Research Center said, migrants from the mainland are often comparatively capable economically and in terms of education level.


Lau suggested that, the government should make the most out of them, in the benefit of Hong Kong. This includes improvement in education facilities for the doubly non-permanent resident (DNR) children.


Lau said, DNR children are often seen as burdens to the society nowadays, offering them proper education allows them to contribute as part of the labour force in the future.


Lau said such suggestions aimed to solve current problems brought by the existing non-permanent resident (DNR) children, not to encourage a more lenient quota on the number of doubly non-permanent resident (DNR) children to Hong Kong.


Lau considered the increase of fertility rate, as solution to both the aging population and insufficient labour force in various job markets. He disagreed with government’s plan to introduce more foreign labours, he said this could only help ease the problem temporarily.


On the other hand, Lau doubted criticisms over introduction of foreign labours, which worries that it might exploit the job opportunities of local workers. “We have a lot of foreigners working in our local financial sectors, and we have never called it unfair for taking away job opportunities from local employees. How is this case different from introduction of foreign workers to different sectors?” asked Lau.


Lau also said the Bauhinia Foundation Research Center does not plan to work on suggestions towards the 2017 universal suffrage. He said there had already been too many diverse ideologies over the issues, the center rather focused on how to improve the fertility rates as well as the living standard in Hong Kong.
