Budget Speech


118.      The Government attaches great importance to meeting the learning needs of women at the grassroots level. In 2004 the Women's Commission launched the Capacity Building Mileage Programme to encourage women of different backgrounds and educational levels to pursue lifelong learning and develop a positive mindset and outlook on life. Since the launch of the programme, the number of enrolments has exceeded 28000, while large audiences have been reached through radio programmes. I will allocate $20 million in the coming three years to expand the programme and provide fee remissions to women with financial difficulty so as to encourage more women to pursue continuous learning and self-development.
