Preventing and fighting against the epidemic, as well as deploying resources to alleviate the pressure on enterprises and the general public are our top priority.

  • $30 billion Anti-epidemic Fund – to relieve the burden on those industries and employees in the eye of the storm.
  • disburse $10,000 to Hong Kong permanent residents aged 18 or above, with a view to encouraging and boosting local consumption on the one hand, and relieving people’s financial burden on the other.
