136. I will allocate $37 million over the next six years to provide professional training for the conservators of the LCSD and those of the Hong Kong Palace Museum, which will be opened soon, as well as increase the number of places under the museum trainees (conservation) programme and the summer internship programme.  It is expected that the measures will benefit more than 150 people.

137. I will also inject $100 million into the Cantonese Opera Development Fund to further support Cantonese opera practitioners in enhancing their professional standards and pursuing continuous training, with a view to facilitating the long‑term development of the Cantonese opera sector.  It is expected that the measure will benefit 800 Cantonese opera practitioners.
