The Hong Kong Government has increased funding of $54 million in arts and culture in 2019/20 to encourage Hong Kong art creation. Yiu Yun Man, the Executive Director of Actors’ Family, attended the General Assembly held by Hong Kong Shue Yan University and pointed out that the difficulties and challenges of the troupe resources are many and the government's support is still insufficient. She also predicts that the development of Hong Kong performing arts will not be too great in the next decade.

Yiu said that Hong Kong's copyright law is extremely backward and does not fully protect the creator's work. There are restrictions on the adaptation of copyright, which limits people's creation. Secondly, Hong Kong's performance venues are seriously inadequate. They have not been able to support the long-term performance of the troupe. The troupe even needs to compete with the primary schools for performances. Although the government has proposed corresponding plans and arrangements to divide some places in the West Kowloon Cultural District into theater venues, she believes that the good results of the harvest are far away. Yiu said that the Hong Kong government should learn from South Korea. In the past ten years, South Korea has provided a large number of scholarships for students to learn to perform. South Korean famous artists such as Cho Seung-woo will train performances through stage plays, which are all lacking in Hong Kong.

Yiu pointed out that most of the troupes have only 2,000 regular audiences. The government should allocate more public funds to continue to expand the audience, promote the drama culture and cultivate the audience's appreciation level. Yiu said that the cost of producing musicals is too large, resulting in insufficient funds for cultivating talents and creating new works. Although the Hong Kong Arts Development Council has subsidies every year, she believes that the funding of the three-year funding group is not enough to maintain the troupe. The quality of the art and the continuous development, so the troupe needs to find another way out, looking for additional resources. Yiu questioned whether the Hong Kong Arts Development Council has developed Hong Kong's art.

Yiu predicts that Hong Kong will not have an exclusive college for musicals in the next decade. She suggested that the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts should offer courses in cultivating musical performance talents. She also pointed out that Hong Kong has not yet had a large-scale musical performance venue after ten years. She hopes that the government can assist in the establishment of musical drama brands and bias the overall cultural policy to musicals so that the musical performances in Hong Kong will not decline.
