Education Services

108.      To promote the internationalisation and diversification of our education services, we have allocated four greenfield sites for the building of international schools. We expect that some 5 000 places will be provided in the coming few years to admit children of those who come from abroad to work in Hong Kong and attract more quality non-local students to study here.

109.      The number of self-financing degree-awarding tertiary institutions in Hong Kong has increased to four, providing a total of about 11 000 places. We awarded two sites at the end of last year for the development of self-financing degree programmes. We have also reserved a site at the former Queen Hill’s Camp in the New Territories and invited expressions of interest from relevant organisations. I will consider increasing the commitment of the Start-up Loan Scheme to help institutions meet the costs of purpose-built accommodation when needed.

110.      In his Policy Address, the Chief Executive proposed to establish a Self-financing Post-secondary Education Fund with a total commitment of $2.5 billion for the development of self-financing post-secondary education. We plan to set up the Fund in the second half of this year.
