Children commission meeting held

May 25, 2023

Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki today chaired the 17th meeting of the Commission on Children, where members received a briefing on the Government’s Youth Development Blueprint announced in December 2022.


Welcoming an array of over 160 specific actions and measures in the blueprint, the members offered views on how the Government should join with various sectors to implement the initiatives effectively.


They also discussed the views collected from children and stakeholders in an engagement session organised by the commission in early May on the challenges of moving on from the COVID-19 epidemic and resuming normal school life.


Members stressed that they were pleased to note the Government’s steadfast implementation of a series of support measures for children, families and schools.


Such measures include enhancing learning activities within and beyond the classroom, nurturing positive thinking, strengthening mental health and offering guidelines on healthy digital screen time.


The members added that they were also pleased that the Government has been helping children with special needs or those having recovered from COVID-19 to assist with their early adjustment to normal school life.
