Supporting Social Enterprises

50.       In last year's Budget, I proposed that we should support the development of social enterprises, and this has been widely accepted by the community.  The Enhancing Self-Reliance Through Partnership Programme launched by the Home Affairs Department has so far provided funding to 41 social enterprise projects, which are expected to provide about 750 jobs.  In order to nurture more management talent for social enterprises, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and various tertiary institutions, with the support of the Commission on Poverty, will offer Hong Kong's first social enterprise management training course in the middle of this year.  In collaboration with the business, social welfare and education sectors, we will continue our efforts to promote and facilitate the further development of social enterprises in Hong Kong.
