Budget Speech

Mainland Experience Scheme for Post-secondary Students

135.      I have always encouraged young people to see for themselves and learn more about our country’s latest development. I propose to allocate $100 million to launch a five-year pilot scheme to subsidise on a matching basis local tertiary students participating in short-term internship or learning programmes in the Mainland, including visits, exchanges or voluntary services. Participants will be able to learn about the prevailing social, economic and cultural landscapes of our country through these programmes. Each student may receive a subsidy of up to $3,000. It is estimated that over 30 000 students will benefit from the Scheme.
