The government announced the measures of "grabbing talent and robbing enterprises" to attract 35,000 talents to Hong Kong every year in the next three years.
Lin Jianfeng, member of the Executive Council, vice-chairman of the Economic and Democratic League and member of the business community (first) of the Legislative Council, said that he was very happy to see the government implement the relevant talent policies in the "Policy Address", but believed that it could not make up for the brain drain.
Recruiting 35,000 people a year is still not enough to make up for the loss
Lin Jianfeng said that Hong Kong has lost 140,000 people in the past two years, two-thirds of which are high-tech personnel. Even if it attracts 35,000 people to Hong Kong every year, it is still not enough to make up for the lost talent gap.
He said that the business community expects more aggressive measures to be introduced in the future.
The government's "Talent Service Window Online Platform" will be launched next week to provide information on basic necessities, food, housing and transportation for overseas people. Lin Jianfeng believes that it is the first step in building bridges and paving the way.
However, if these talents are willing to come to Hong Kong, they need to provide attractive and competitive content in terms of basic necessities of life.
Lin Jianfeng pointed out that highly educated professionals care about family environment, quality of life and income level, and the government can start attracting talents from these aspects.
Proposals to increase housing, benefits, tax exemptions and more
Lin Jianfeng pointed out that highly educated professionals care about the family environment, quality of life and income level, and believe that the government should give heavy medicine to provide housing, education and other preferential policies for talents, such as child tax allowance, child education tax deduction, and "buyer stamp duty" exemption Wait.
As for the "High-end Talent Pass Program", Lin Jianfeng advocates considering flexible handling according to the characteristics of individual industries. For example, some colleges and universities that are famous for cultivating specific majors may also be considered for graduates of related majors.
On the other hand, "introduce key enterprise offices", Lin Jianfeng suggested to take a long-term view, for example, when planning the "Northern Metropolitan Area" in the future, the development of key industries should be included in it, and land should be reserved so that these industries can become new economic developments in Hong Kong. The engine drives local enterprises to develop in the direction of high-end and high value-added.
