Helping the Disadvantaged

46.       Over the past two years, the Commission on Poverty has held in-depth discussions on ways to prevent or alleviate poverty and to promote self-reliance, provided the Government with specific proposals and assisted in taking forward work on poverty alleviation.  I will allocate about $900 million to implement a series of measures to help the disadvantaged, including those that promote employment, support the development of social enterprises, strengthen families, nurture children and take care of the elderly.  The Commission will continue to study the feasibility of other poverty-alleviation measures and will submit a report to the Government in the middle of this year.
